“Refurbishment and redecoration” will be “of the hall, which forms a later addition to the Grade II Listed Wycombe Abbey,” documents state.

Adding: “The works are restricted to the interior of the hall, known as ‘Big School’.

“The proposals aim to upgrade the quality and functionality of the Big School space, to be carried out alongside previously-consented works to remove asbestos contamination and install a replacement floor.”

The applicant is now awaiting a decision from Bucks Council.
