Consultation on the Gomm Valley and Ashwells development brief
Gomm Valley and Ashwells development brief: consultation responses [PDF | 728KB]: summary of Gomm Valley and Ashwells development brief consultation responses showing recommended changes.
We want your views on a proposed development brief for the Gomm Valley and Ashwells site. The development brief sets out the guiding principles of how the site could be developed in the future to provide new, high-quality housing.
When it is finalised, the parameters set out in the development brief will help shape detailed planning permission. There will be separate developer-led community consultations at a later date as part of the normal planning application process.
Purpose and detail
We decided to release the Gomm Valley and Ashwells reserve site for development in late 2014. We took this decision to help meet Wycombe district's housing shortfall. A liaison group of local councillors and local community representatives has helped us set out the guiding principles which will govern how the site will be developed. These principles are set out in a draft development brief. We now want your comments on the draft development brief before it is finalised.
The development brief identifies a series of development principles for the site and sets out parameters for future development, illustrating the type and location of buildings with artist’s impressions and the scale and character of some of the defined open spaces.
As part of this public consultation exercise any information you give us, including personal data, may be put into the public domain, including on this website.

If you have any queries:
Once the consultation has closed, we will use the responses we receive to refine and improve the development brief. We will finalise and submit the brief to Wycombe DC Cabinet in winter 2016. Once agreed, the development brief will form the basis for a separate developer led planning application for the development of the Gomm Valley and Ashwells site. That application will follow the standard planning application process.
