High Wycombe Gateway Expansion, UK
Strategic master plan for a 60ha expansion of High Wycombe. The primary objective was to identify the benefits of synergetic development between a large disused military base and two fields not yet allocated for urban development.
We identified how change of use in the area could best promote the whole town in terms of housing, employment and social and community infrastructure. Key challenges included the creation of a well-served and independent community, integrated with surrounding neighbourhoods and based on walking, cycling and efficient public transport. Commissioned by Wycombe Council and led by Colin Buchanan.
