Aylesbury Woodlands aims to provide jobs through developing employment land for a range of offices, industrial and commercial uses supported by retail, leisure facilities and housing set in an extensive green environment.
On 26 October 2017 Aylesbury Vale District Council resolved that our outline planning application should be approved, subject to conditions and completion of planning (‘S.106’) agreements.
For details on the outline planning application go to the Consultation and application documents section of News and Updates.
Eastern Link Road (South)
The design and delivery of the Eastern Link Road (South) will be important and form part of the development. The road will improve north south connection by providing the missing link between the A41 and the A418 and provide a radial route to the east of Aylesbury Town Centre.
Aylesbury Woodlands will:
- Support future employment growth for Aylesbury and Buckinghamshire
- Attract commercial investment into the local economy
- Respond to local housing pressures
- Create substantial green infrastructure for open space, sports and recreational facilities
- Support biodiversity
- Support infrastructure delivery
- Provide balanced sustainable development
Creating a sustainable work and balanced home life environment characterised by open space and leisure opportunities will help to promote healthy living and well being and active lifestyles. Aylesbury Woodlands will be an exemplar development in the promotion and delivery of its green infrastructure.
In addition, Aylesbury’s high and rising employment rate is being driven by residents increasingly finding work outside the county.1 Therefore to create jobs, housing and leisure on the Aylesbury Woodlands site creates a sustainable home/work balance and reduces travel to work.
