Terriers Farm reserve site

This site is located on the northern side of High Wycombe occupying a sensitive area between the town and Hazlemere. It contains pasture land and adjoins both the Chilterns AONB and the Terriers Conservation Area. It is a visually enclosed site but contains high quality hedgerow features which form a strong landscape structure. It is located close to an important public transport corridor on the northern approach into High Wycombe.

Development brief

A draft development brief has been produced for the Terriers Farm reserve site.

A consultation was held on the draft development brief between 17 October and 28 November 2016, where the public had the opportunity to comment on the draft brief. Exhibitions were also held on 2 and 3 November 2016 where our staff were available to answer questions on the draft brief.

We are currently considering the comments made and reviewing the draft brief in the light of those comments.  

Public workshops

Our consultants, AR Urbanism, ran an all-day workshop event on Saturday 7 February. Following the event they produced a report of their findings and the key points raised at the meeting.

Liaison group

The Terriers Farm liaison group has been set up to provide a forum for local stakeholders to play a proactive role in helping set key parameters for the way these sites should be developed in a managed way and to help shape development briefs to inform any planning applications that are submitted by developers.

The liaison group is chaired by Cllr Matt Knight. The WDC officer looking after this site is Charles Power.

The inaugural meeting of the liaison group was held on Tuesday 27 January. View minutes, presentations and agenda papers (where available):
