PEO­PLE in Bea­cons­field will get the chance to find out the lat­est on the Wil­ton Park de­vel­op­ment at a pub­lic event this week.

In­land Homes, the de­vel­oper which is plan­ning a 350 home build­ing project at the for­mer Min­istry of De­fence site in Bea­cons­field, is host­ing a pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 4 and Satur­day, De­cem­ber 5. Peo­ple in the town have been in­vited along by In­land Homes to the event, at which they will be able to find out how the opin­ions and views they have given since the project was an­nounced have in­formed plans for its plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion.

A state­ment from In­land Homes said: “In­land Homes would like to in­vite you to a pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion on the re­de­vel­op­ment of Wil­ton Park on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 4 and Satur­day, De­cem­ber 5. In 2013, we asked the lo­cal com­mu­nity to give us their thoughts on fu­ture de­vel­op­ment at Wil­ton Park.

“This feed­back in­formed a De­vel­op­ment Brief which pro­vides clear guide­lines for any de­vel­op­ment at Wil­ton Park and was for­mally adopted by South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil in March 2015.

“The next stage is to pre­pare an out­line ap­pli­ca­tion, which will pro­vide more de­tail on the de­vel­op­ment and the con­tri­bu­tion it will make to the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”

In­land Homes has al­ready been given per­mis­sion by South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil to con­struct a new road from the A40 Pye­bush Round­about to Wil­ton Park in or­der to al­low ac­cess to and from the site.

Peo­ple liv­ing in Bea­cons­field have pre­vi­ously ex­pressed con­cern as to the im­pact the Wil­ton Park de­vel­op­ment, as well as other high pro­file projects tak­ing place in the town and nearby, such as HS2 and the build­ing of a re­lief road, will have on the town and its in­fra­struc­ture.

The con­sul­ta­tion events will take place at the coun­cil cham­ber in Bea­cons­field Town Hall from 2pm-8pm on Fri­day and from 11am un­til 4pm on Satur­day.

The next stage is to pre­pare an out­line ap­pli­ca­tion
