Planning application submitted for Brunel Shed
Following a positive public consultation on options, a formal planning application has now been submitted for the repair, refurbishment and extension of the Brunel Engine Shed in High Wycombe. This planning application is the first step of a wider programme by Wycombe District Council to uplift and elevate the area around the railway station and Easton Street, referred to as the Eastern Quarter Regeneration.
Prior to the council's acquisition of the Brunel Engine Shed in November 2019, the building had been vacant for a considerable period of time and had been left in a poor condition. The planning application proposes the repair and refurbishment of this Grade II Listed building in order for it to be brought back into a sustainable use, while the extension to the building provides additional modernised floor space for possible commercial uses.
The regeneration of the area around High Wycombe railway station is important for the prosperity of the town and the wider district. The acquisition of the Brunel Engine Shed and surrounding land is aimed at starting the process of changing this part of the town into a place for local residents and visitors to use and enjoy.
