Taylor Wimpey to submit planning application on redundant industrial site after success of consultation

7th December 2014 Print

Leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey is preparing to submit a planning application for a redundant industrial site in High Wycombe following the success of its recent public exhibition.

Feedback received during the public consultation process, regarding a proposed new residential development of 96 new homes on an industrial depot to the south of the VERCO site, has helped to shape the final application, which will be submitted to Wycombe District Council in December.

The brownfield site, a redundant industrial depot used to store HGVs, will be regenerated with housing and will include a cycle and pedestrian through-route to West Wycombe Park as well as enhancements to the local river environment. The scheme will help deliver much-needed housing for the district in a sustainable location.

Damon Turner, Senior Land Manager for Taylor Wimpey West London, says: “We were very pleased with the response to the two public exhibitions we held, in March and September, to give people the chance to find out more about our development proposals.

“The feedback we received has been very useful in helping to fine-tune our proposals, resulting in more open space, increased parking provision and a more natural feel to the de-culverting of the underground stream on the site. There is also now greater separation between the existing homes and those we are planning to build.

“We are now finalising the planning application which we plan to submit to Wycombe District Council in December.”

Taylor Wimpey’s planning application will include proposals for 96 new properties, with a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom houses and apartments, including a proportion of affordable homes.

As part of the development, Taylor Wimpey will make contributions to the local community in line with Wycombe District Council’s Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

The plans are expected to be considered by Wycombe District Council in the spring of 2015, and if they are approved, work is likely to start on site in summer 2015.

Taylor Wimpey is building new homes across the West London region, with further details available on the website at
