Wycombe Commercial Assessments

Boyer's Development Economics team was commissioned by Wycombe District Council to provide commercial property advice on the appropriate provision of employment allocations and the scope for additional business development across several new potential employment locations (both greenfield and brownfield sites) in terms of scale and type of employment floor space.

Boyer undertook a commercial drivers assessment to establish an understanding of each locations overall commercial strength. Following this assessment we drilled down to the local level of each potential employment location to determine –

  • What particular site is considered most appropriate for employment floor space;
  • What total amount of employment floor space is considered appropriate based on likely demand; and
  • What type and individual size of premises is likely to meet future occupier needs

Finally recommendations were made on what the Council’s approach could be in terms of allocating employment land bearing in mind the District’s new Local Plan will be looking ahead at least 10 to 15 years into the future. As part of these recommendations we completed a high level viability assessment using current applicable market data. This helped inform overall deliverability for future employment development.

Boyer’s findings relating to Princes Risborough are currently being consulted on as part of the wider Princes Risborough Town Plan can be viewed by clicking here.

The findings relating to the remaining employment locations will be published alongside Wycombe’s draft Local Plan later in 2016.
