Aldi-store-Cropped-800x600

New Aldi store and creative hub for Baker Street

The area around Baker Street in High Wycombe is poised for redevelopment to start later this year as part of Wycombe District Council’s continued investment in the town. 

Outline plans showing what’s in store for the area will go on display next week as part of the council’s public consultation work which will run from Monday 6 to 13 February. 

As well as the information and visuals on our website, members of the team will be available to answer questions face to face at a special drop-in event being held:
 
11am to 7pm
Tuesday 7 February
at Arts4Every1
on Desborough Road HP11 2PU.

Wycombe District Council owns the former industrial land and is working with urban designers on plans to regenerate the area.

Outline plans, which will be subject to planning permission, will include:

  • a proposed new Aldi food store coming to the town
  • a car showroom 
  • purpose built vehicle workshops
  • creating a funky new home for local craftspeople and artists using shipping containers

Wycombe District Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development Cllr Roger Wilson said: “I’d encourage everyone who’s interested in the future of this part of the town to come along to the exhibition and talk to us or give us comments using our website. We’re keen to hear local views to help us fine tune the scheme ahead of going through the formal planning process.”

See: Consultation: Baker Street renewal for information and design concepts and how to make comments.

The consultation will close to comments from the public on 13 February.
