What is proposed?

Our local plan expands Princes Risborough by about 2,500 homes, including affordable housing and a good mix of sizes and types. The expansion will create a local centre close to the new northern primary school, with shops, pubs, community spaces and room for business start-ups.

As well as 2,500 new homes, we're also proposing a number of other developments.

  • to help take traffic off the main A4010
  • tree planted avenue with pedestrian/cycle path
  • road improvements, including a new rail bridge at Summerleys Road and Grove Lane


  • to run between the railway station, town centre, expansion area and Longwick


  • sports hub with pitches and club house
  • home for a rugby club and allotments
  • green corridor around the Crowbrook stream for nature conservation and flood management
  • off-road walking and cycling routes in wide green lane, and links to the countryside
  • open space and play areas


  • to be built next to the green spaces and play areas


  • a step-free route for walking and cycling through the railway embankment at Wades Park, providing easy access to the town centre
  • improvements for pedestrians and cyclists on Mill Lane and Longwick Road
  • stepped footbridge near Monks Risborough Station


What will be built when?

  • Southern road links, including the Summerley's Road Bridge improvements, will be built by around 250 homes,and the relief road all linked up by half way through the development.
  • The first primary school will come on stream at about 500 homes, and the second one at 1,500 homes.
  • A new bus service will be provided by half way through the development.
  • The new £5m sports hub will be provided by about 800 homes. There will be a separate rugby pitch, and the Molins Sports Ground is also likely to be brought back into use.
