People living in Wing are being invited to have their say on latest proposals from house-builder Taylor Wimpey to build more than 50 new homes on a derelict allotments in the village.

The developer is holding a public exhibition showing details of the scheme ahead of its formal submission, to build 52 homes in Dormer Avenue. The land has already been identified for development by Aylesbury Vale District Council.

The exhibition takes place at Wing Village Hall, Leighton Road, on Friday, January 31 between 4pm and 8pm.

Victor Idowu, senior land manager for Taylor Wimpey South Midlands, said: “We want to give local people the chance to have their say on our development proposals and by taking part in this public consultation.

“Wing residents can help to influence our scheme before our planning application is finalised for submission.

“We are confident that this development would not only fulfil a need for more high-quality family homes and affordable housing in the local area, but that it would also positively enhance the community thanks to a number of improvements to local infrastructure which the residents of Wing have identified as required and are now being proposed as part of the scheme.”

The development site was previously used as allotments but has been disused for years and is currently overgrown.

Anyone unable to attend the public expo will be able to access all public consultation material and submit their comments online at from January 31.
