Development of housing units at Bath Road Depot, Burnham
The rise in homelessness is a national problem and is reflected here in South Bucks. We are supporting the provision of more affordable rented accommodation as part of our duties to prevent homelessness and accommodate those in need, but we need to put in more resources to providing temporary accommodation to reduce the cost of emergency housing.
Exciting plans have been developed by the Council for proposals to design, build and install 12 secure temporary one and two bedroomed self-contained units at Bath Road Depot. The Council is seeking planning permission for a period of five to 10 years. This scheme will help the Council to provide accommodation for those who are homeless and in priority need. Furthermore, the provision of emergency accommodation in the district would reduce the health inequality risks associated with the placement of families out of the district.
The planning application was submitted towards the end of December and formal comments can be made on the proposals via our website view Planning applications from 8 January 2018.
