Aviva and Human + Nature are preparing a planning application for the Gomm Valley in pursuit of the Wycombe District Council’s plan for the area.
Please come along and meet the team behind the proposals and work with their architects, engineers, landscape and ecology experts and sustainable transport specialists. This is an event with a difference. They want you to share your ideas, ambitions and local knowledge to help make sure the new homes, community facilities, streets, landscape designs and supporting infrastructure combine to create a beautiful new place for the town that all can be proud of.
They are determined to ensure the plans lead to a truly 21st-century place with a strong community, one that enables people – especially children – to live close to and in harmony with nature; moreover, they want you to help ensure that the designs are sensitive to, and indeed honour, the wonderful setting of the Valley and come to represent a new and better way of building and living for the future.
A temporary tent structure will house a series of design workshops, large-scale plans, drawings and models, as well as talks from specialists, site visits and children’s activities.
A complimentary meal and refreshments will be provided by local suppliers.
The event is taking place from June 29th to July 1st in the Valley. Please register on their website for further details, directions to the venue and to receive your complimentary food and beverage coupons.
The displays, talks and workshops will be organised throughout the weekend around 6 themes related to development; Place, Homes, Landscape & Ecology, Transport, Community Facilities: super-local, Resources & Sustainability.
In addition, there will be talks from specialists, site visits, children’s activities, electric bike demonstrations and ecology walks with wildlife experts.
