A public consultation is to be held asking for feedback on proposals for the building of new temporary accommodation for the Wycombe District on the site of the car park in Desborough Road.

Organised by Wycombe District Council, the consultation will run for two weeks starting from Thursday 18th October 2018.

Between 1.00pm and 8.00pm on Thursday 18th October 2018 a drop in event will take place in the main church exhibition space at the Wycombe Arts Centre in Desborough Road. Comment forms will be available at the drop in event.

The current temporary accommodation which Wycombe District Council provides is in a remote rural location in an old building at Saunderton. There is a shortage of places to meet the need for but it is not possible to expand the current building.

Wycombe District Council is sharing plans which will enable them to help more people who are in need of temporary accommodation and provide a better living environment for the households that need help.

The consultation will show proposals to build new temporary accommodation on land owned by Wycombe District Council in the Desborough area of High Wycombe. This will bring people closer to the local services they need including transport facilities, council offices, GP surgeries, parks, faith centres and schools as well as other support services.

To have your say email [email protected], write to the Temporary Accommodation Project Team at the Wycombe District Council offices or fill in a form at the special drop in event on Thursday 18th October 2018.

The council will use feedback from the consultation to help them to prepare a planning application for this new scheme. There will also be a chance to comment as part of the formal planning application process once a planning application has been made.

From Thursday 18th to Wednesday 31st October 2018 information on the proposals will also be available on the Wycombe District Council website.
