Wycombe District Council is proposing a new development of affordable homes and a new hub for furniture makers to protect High Wycombe’s heritage.
Furniture makers currently based in Leigh Street would relocate to innovative new low cost workshops on part of a scheme off Bellfield Road, a further piece of the council’s Hughenden Quarter project, which is currently under construction.
As part of the proposals for the Bellfield Road site a block of 62 new apartments would also be built providing affordable homes in the heart of the town centre.
Wycombe District Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Regeneration Cllr Roger Wilson said: ‘The Bellfield Road proposals show the council’s commitment to providing affordable accommodation for our residents and also preserving High Wycombe’s long-standing connection to the furniture industry.‘
The council will be hosting a public exhibition outlining the plans in the entrance to Morrisons supermarket in Temple End between 12.00pm and 8.00pm on Thursday 6th April 2017.
