Council Backing Means 9k Jobs Site 'Will Work'

The group behind plans for another huge development in Aylesbury say it'll work, because the councils are backing it.

Bucks Advantage are planning to create space for 9,000 jobs, 1,100 homes and a sports stadium, amongst other things, to the east of the town.

There's already a project to build thousands of homes at Aylesbury East on top of this, with the first phase being built later this year.

But Richard Harrington, from Bucks Advantage, says Aylesbury Woodlands would add to that:

"It's being promoted by a public/private partnership and the benefit of that is that we can suit the development to meet community needs and employment needs of the area."

He also said that having AVDC and Bucks County Council on board means infrastructure will be built, and that the main focus for this will be jobs rather than houses.

He added:

"We're providing a link between the dual-carriageway A41 and the road that will be constructed as part of the Barratt development north of the Grand Union Canal.

"That will then, in turn, link Bierton."

He admitted it is a big project to take on:

"It is an ambitious target, but we are talking about a large site here.

"It's approximately 220 Hectares, which is comparable with the big development areas of Berryfields and Bierton."

Hear our full interview with Richard below:

The whole project is in its early stages, with the chance for you to have a say on July 11, at Anthony Hall, Aston Clinton between 10am and 4pm. You can find some more details on their website: www.aylesburywoodlands.co.uk
