A commitment to Beaconsfield
Beeches Park is an example of what can be achieved when there is a true commitment to quality and to creating a place that meets local housing needs.
It will be designed and built to high quality standards and there is a commitment to ensure the right mix of homes, including Lifetime Homes and First Homes, Rent to Buy, Shared Ownership - all homes with an affordable, discounted rent.
40% of the homes built will be more affordable than the local market rate to buy or rent.
There is a genuine desire to ensure this development is an exemplar project that sets new standards where the right balance is found between protecting the local character, enhancing green spaces and the environment, and providing housing for local people at all levels.
The Portman Estate is committed to creating great places where people choose to live and work. It invests in developments for the long term and cares strongly that it will deliver homes that matches its high standards for design and sustainability.
Beeches Park will be designed to ensure it is in harmony with the local landscape and building traditions.
The Portman Estate has long term ambitions to set high standards for how new communities can be integrated into towns and in doing so, enhancing the lifestyle and quality of life for the whole community.
It acknowledges and understands the concerns that have been raised over many months to new development close to Beaconsfield. While community concern will naturally exist, The Portman Estate believes it should not act as a barrier to legitimate endeavours to provide places for people to live that are needed and in the right location.
The ambition is to provide Beaconsfield with a long term, lasting solution to its clear needs for housing and community facilities in a responsible, high-quality proposal that will contribute positively to the much-loved character and identity of the town.
