Plans Unveiled For Waterside North

Exchange  St 2

1:15pm 25th April 2014

Proposals for the next step in the redevelopment of Aylesbury will be unveiled on Wednesday (30th April).

Aylesbury Vale District Council and Buckinghamshire County Council have worked together to draw up the plans which will see part of the Exchange Street car park and some of the adjacent Old County Offices area transformed into a space for mixed use.

The plans will also show a Masterplan for how the whole site (known as Waterside North) could be developed over time.

The public consultation will then run until Wednesday 21 May - and the comments back will help shape the outline planning application which will be submitted in early summer.

Details of the exhibition are:

  • Wednesday 30 April: 9.30am – 5.30pm Aylesbury Library
  • Thursday 1 May: 9.30am – 19.30pm Aylesbury Library
  • Friday 2 May: 9.30am – 17.30pm Hale Leys Shopping Centre
  • Saturday 3 May: 9.30am – 17.30pm Friars Square Shopping Centre
  • Sunday 4 May: 11am – 4.00pm Friars Shopping Centre

Councillor Neil Blake, Leader of AVDC explained:

"It’s great that we are now able to share these plans which involve both the County and District Councils. Confidence in Aylesbury is certainly growing but we need to keep our feet firmly on the ground and make sure our plans are realistic to deliver. That’s why the plans concentrate on a first phase of development rather than the whole site. This approach will also help us to respond flexibly to changing market conditions and customer expectations when it comes to considering further phases of development of the site.

Given Aylesbury’s role as the county town and as the major growth area in the Vale, I hope that lots of people will take the opportunity to tell us what they think about the proposals.”


Buckinghamshire County Council has already submitted an application for planning permission which, if approved, will prepare the ground for these latest plans. The application includes the demolition of the rear of the old County office buildings and one of the former police station buildings which will enable a temporary surface car park to be built. The new spaces will replace the spaces which will be lost when work begins in the Exchange Street car park which is
expected to be in 2015.

The Waterside North proposals reflect the Vision for the town which is set out in the Aylesbury Town Centre Plan. The Plan has been developed to guide future development of the town centre by all stakeholders whether the private or public sector. It includes a set of actions to improve different areas of the town, one of which is Waterside North.
