Please now see the Residents Society and Ashwells Forum questions we discussed with Wycombe District Council at a recent meeting. If you intend submitting your comments please have a read of these points as they may help in your submission.

The Ashwells planning application is available on the WDC website, all the documents will be available to read at Chepping Wycombe Parish Officers in Cock Lane, the Site Notice confirms the  deadline for submitting comments is 26 Feb 2018

An article was published in the current edition of Village Voice and provides a high-level view of the application and associated documents. We are pleased to publish this article in full on this website in the Village life/planning & conservation/Ashwells tab.
The application (Ref. 18/05002/R9OUT) can be viewed by going to www.wycombe.gov.uk and clicking on ‘Find a planning application’.

The meeting had been requested by Penelope Tollitt (PT) Head of Planning and Sustainability at Wycombe District Council, to brief the Ashwells Forum on the current status of the Development Brief (DB). Representing the Forum were Miles Green, Gill Markham, Gerry King and Ken Cooke. The full report of the meeting and follow up notes is available report

It was agreed that the following list of topics would form an agenda for the meeting:

• Cock Lane/Spine Road
• Size of gap between Parcel 8 and Ashwells
• The Copse
• Density
• Hammersley Lane access to Parcel 1
• Traffic levels in P&TG
• Bus Routes
• Construction Traffic Access to Ashwells site
• Car Parking
• Green space in perpetuity

The Developmnent Brief will be considered for adoption at the 10 July meeting of the WDC Cabinet. This final version of the Brief will ‘go live’ on the Council website 5 days in advance of the Cabinet meeting.

It is not clear what the timetable will be for the presentation of planning applications. It is likely that the overall plan for the GVA reserve site is currently being reviewed by AVIVA as the new landowner, and although there have been expectations of an OPA being submitted for over a year, so far there has been no request for a Pre-application meeting. Proposals for the Ashwells site will be reviewed in-house with the property section of WDC (Charles Brocklehurst), but again there is no timetable for this.

the full report and response to this report from Penelope Tollitt is published in full in the Ashwells Development section of this website
