GMPRG response to revised plans for Great Missenden Station

Monday, December 20th, 2021

We believe that a redevelopment at Great Missenden Station would be a benefit, as long as the development is appropriate and blends into the existing village and its conservation area.
We have now had the opportunity to review the revised plans submitted by the applicant.

Overall Design
The station forecourt has an Urban feel and would benefit from a less metropolitan colour palette to integrate better into the village.
Changing the colour of the window frames to white would help to blend the buildings into Station Approach.
A mini roundabout at the junction would help to improve highway safety, particularly reducing the speed of traffic coming down Martinsend Lane.
There are a number of other issues which have not been addressed. To read the full response please follow this link to Response to revised station plans December 2021
