Buckinghamshire Council is inviting residents to give their views on plans for a new housing development at Stoke Mandeville.
Buckinghamshire Council has worked closely with Stoke Mandeville Parish Council to bring forward proposals for a new housing scheme and is now asking residents what they think of the plans.
The design for the site just off Lower Road in Stoke Mandeville includes a higher than usual proportion of affordable accommodation, up to 30% of around 100 mixed residential units in total. The proposals also include:
a Link Road between Booker Park School and Lower Road including improved access to Lower Road
green open spaces with leisure space and children’s play areas
retained green land for the community and a sports facility for school and community use
You can see the proposed plans and comment online at from Monday 4 April to 9 May. There will also be two drop- in sessions during the consultation where you can meet Council and Parish Council officers in person and see the proposals, ask questions and give your feedback.
John Chilver, Cabinet Member for Finance, Resources and Property & Assets at Buckinghamshire Council said:
“We know that there is a shortage of affordable homes in Buckinghamshire and this is one of the ways we are looking, as a council, to help. Using a site we own, our ambition is to bring forward a higher proportion than required by statute, of the homes we provide as affordable homes. Our plans include creating an environment nestled within the Stoke Mandeville Community where people will enjoy living. We aim to provide plenty of open green space for community use as well as a new link road linking Booker Park School to Lower Road. We’d welcome your comments and feedback on the proposed scheme”
