Sigma Strategic Land has agreed with private landowners to promote an 8.22-acre site in Princes Risborough through the Local Plan review.

The site, which can accommodate around 65 homes along with a substantial area of public space, is close to existing residential, about a mile from the town centre and a short walk from the railway station.

Sigma has already submitted the site to the Local Plan call for sites process. The Regulation 18 assessment of submitted sites, which makes various bodies aware of the council’s preparation of the plan, is due to be published this year.

Christopher East, group land director with Sigma Homes and Sigma Strategic Land, said: “Princes Risborough is a popular and affluent commuter town with good schools and recreational facilities.

“The site is located outside the Green Belt and AONB and is very sustainably located. The fact that the site can immediately deliver a good number of much-needed family homes, including a policy compliant level (48 per cent) of affordable housing including First Homes and will deliver a substantial Community Infrastructure Levy payment to the council to support the delivery of local infrastructure, should ensure that the site performs well in the Regulation 18 assessment.

“Sigma Strategic Land look forward to continuing to engage with the council to bring this site forward for development through the current Local Plan review process.”

The team includes DHA Architecture, law firm Brecher LLP, Asset Heritage Consulting, Archaeology South-East, InCo Surveys and trademyland.

Sigma Strategic Land is on the look out for further sites. Contact
