Major plans for 380 homes and a new school and “retirement village” have come forward.

Biddulph (Buckinghamshire) Ltd has submitted to Bucks Council an outline planning application relating to a more than 29-hectare area of land between Lodge Lane and Burtons Lane in Little Chalfont.

Part of the site is the former golf course, and the other is Homestead Farm.

Plans outline the demolition of all existing buildings and the erection of 213 residential properties (163 houses and 50 flats), including 152 affordable homes, 15 custom builds, a 100-unit retirement village and a 60-bed care home.

A new vehicle access off Burtons Lane is also planned, as are improvements to a Lodge Lane access, and works to Lodge Lane itself and Church Grove.

A new pedestrian and cycle access at Oakington Avenue will also include a new bridge, plans reveal.

There is also mention of a local centre including a community building, and a public open space.

An area will be safeguarded for a new primary school or primary school expansion with nursery, if there is requirement.

Alternatively, an expansion of Little Chalfont School may be considered as “the most appropriate option to increase capacity”.

“The site currently remains part-vacant following the closure of Little Chalfont Golf Course. There are currently eight buildings on site which include a range of paddocks, outbuildings and residential accommodation,” a document states.

The site was included as part of a much larger site within the now withdrawn Chiltern and South Bucks Local Plan.

It also includes two bungalows at 13 and 15 Oakington Avenue.

A document also states: “A search of the Land Registry Index Map was carried out on November 6 and it stated that there was unregistered land within the application site. The owners of the registered titles identified have been notified.”

A planning statement reads: “The site will have a very substantial positive impact upon the ability of the Chilterns area to meet the acute unmet affordable housing need in the area and contribute to housing supply more broadly, notably through the provision of specialist need provision in the form of elderly care and custom build housing.

“The scheme will also provide much-needed high-quality accessible open space in an area of quantitative deficiency.”
