Developers have proposed several new businesses to inject life and commerce into the Lace Hill estate.

Developers presented plans to Buckingham Town Council last week for consideration.

Buckingham Town Council heard that several exciting new developments would be introduced, including: a Lidl supermarket, Costa Drive-Through, Beefeater restaurant, Premier Inn, a Health Centre (Swan Practice) and a Care home.

Since the withdrawal of Sainsbury’s in 2013, many local residents have been wondering what might come of the site since Sainsburys closed in 2013.

It has been suggested that the new influx of business will create up to 90 jobs, providing an immediate economic impact to the area.

The plans are likely to be fully formulated and submitted by Christmas.

Buckingham Councillor Warren Whyte said: “I am pleased to see new proposals coming forward for the employment site at Lace Hill and the mixed use scheme presented on Monday would be a welcome boost for local jobs and tourism.

“There is little detail at the moment, so I look forward to seeing the planning application in due course.

“I hope that the interesting proposals for a new healthcare facility will also respect the needs for those in the central and the northern parts of town so that they are served by a town centre health centre.

“This will be particularly important for our many elderly town residents, and those without a car, who made a choice to live centrally to be close to all the essential services.” Got a story? Email tom.bamford@jpress.co.uk
