Con­sul­ta­tion on Holy Cross plan

De­vel­op­ers want to hear com­mu­nity’s view on pro­posal for ex­tra care ac­com­mo­da­tion on the site

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

De­vel­op­ers McCarthy and Stone have ac­quired an in­ter­est at the Holy Cross site and will be invit­ing feed­back from lo­cals at a pub­lic ex­hi­bi­tion to be held on Wed­nes­day (Au­gust 10).

Plan­ning per­mis­sion has al­ready been granted for Per­sim­mon Homes to build a 200 house and a 74 room care home de­vel­op­ment there, but McCarthy and Stone’s re­de­vel­op­ment pro­pos­als in­clude Ex­tra Care ac­com­mo­da­tion in­stead of the tra­di­tional care home model.

While the plans are still in their early stages of de­vel­op­ment, de­vel­op­ers want busi­nesses, res­i­dents and in­ter­est groups to have their say. A spokesman said: “We are com­mit­ted to en­gag­ing with the lo­cal com­mu­nity and will be of­fer­ing res­i­dents the op­por­tu­nity to meet with the project team to dis­cuss the early pro­pos­als in the com­ing weeks.

“This will en­sure res­i­dents and stake­hold­ers can view and com­ment on the pro­posed plans and en­able lo­cal peo­ple to speak with the team and pro­vide feed­back.

“We want to hear from the lo­cal com­mu­nity and our fu­ture home-own­ers be­fore we sub­mit plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion.

“We’ll be dis­play­ing our plans at a pub­lic ex­hi­bi­tion and our project team will be there to an­swer ques­tions and lis­ten to feed­back on what we have done so far.

“The com­ments we re­ceive will help us tai­lor a our pro­posal into some­thing peo­ple will want to see, en­joy and call home.

“We be­lieve that Chal­font St Peter is an area where there is a lo­cal need for this type of ac­com­mo­da­tion.

“In ad­di­tion, oc­cu­pants typ­i­cally look­ing to ease the bur­den of main­tain­ing a large prop­erty would al­low these homes to be­come avail­able on the mar­ket.”

It will be held at Chal­font St Peter Par­ish Church Hall, Church Lane, from 3.30pm to 7pm.
