An application for planning has been made in relation to a 200-house Aylesbury housing project.

Savills has submitted a revised planning application for a 200-home housing project in Aylesbury, focusing on transforming a former factory site into residential units. Originally approved in August 2022, the project by Aylesbury Estates Ltd aims to demolish a former CD distribution hub on Rabans Lane.

The new proposal involves altering vehicle access, redirecting entry to the eastern section via Brunel Road instead of Rabans Lane. Alongside housing, the development plans include parking facilities and green spaces adjacent to Aylesbury’s recycling center and a water processing plant.

Despite objections from residents and local councils citing concerns over increased traffic and the neighborhood’s visual impact next to industrial units, the unitary authority conditionally approved the project. Developers seek modifications to current agreements due to significant costs for service diversions, estimated at £700,000, primarily related to identifying and relocating underground utilities like water and gas mains concealed in polyethylene, concrete, or asbestos pipes.
