Consultation: Ashwells development proposal

This consultation is now closed. Thank you for taking part.


We want your views on proposals to potentially provide serviced plots for the construction of approximately 125 homes and a hilltop park on land at Ashwells.

Purpose and detail

Wycombe DC Cabinet decided in late 2014 to release the Gomm Valley and Ashwells reserve sites for development, to help meet the Wycombe district's housing target.

We set up a liaison group made up of local members and representatives of the community to help to guide the production of a development brief document.

The development brief identifies a series of development principles for the wider site and sets out parameters for future development, illustrating the type and location of buildings, and the scale and character of some of the defined open spaces. The development brief is the subject of a separate public consultation.

This public consultation focuses on the site at Ashwells which is owned by Wycombe District Council.

As landowner, the council is bringing forward development proposals to provide serviced plots for the construction of about 125 homes and a hilltop park on the land.

The proposals will be subject to the usual planning process, of which this consultation forms part.

The following boards will be shown at the consultation exhibitions and form the basis of the consultation.


As landowner, the council is seeking your informed feedback on the proposals for the Ashwells site.
