Two shops and four flats along the London Road in High Wycombe could be bulldozed and replaced with a more modern building.

Developers want to demolish the buildings at 464 to 476 London Road which is currently four flats, a convenience store and a shop selling windows and replace it with a much more modern looking three storey block.

The new block will still have two slightly bigger retail units along the ground floor but the number of flats above will be doubled to eight.

Mirage Developments, who have put the plans forward to Buckinghamshire Councils planning officers, say the current building is in a poor state of repair and has structural issues.

If their new plans are given the green light, there will be four one-bed flats and four 2-bed flats, with access to them from the rear of the building. All flats will have a balcony and there will be a cycle store for 10 bikes.

There will also be 14 parking spaces at the back 11 for the eight flats and three for the shops.

A highways consultant says residents living in the new development will be in a good position to be able to visit shops without having to rely on cars, as it is right next door to Tesco Express and a few minutes away from the retail park.
