Project Overview

Lands Improvement has had a long-term interest in land at the Haddenham Airfield for over 15 years as well as the associated Haddenham Business Park. The site is located to the north of Haddenham, Buckinghamshire adjacent to the Thame Parkway railway station, which has frequent direct services to London and Birmingham.  The site sits within Aylesbury Vale and the Buckinghamshire Unitary Authority Boundary.

The total site area was circa 160 acres and has been developed in a number of stages for predominately residential development.  To date approximately 380 residential units, a care home, local shop, 14 acres of commercial land and associated community facilities have been delivered on the site.

Lands Improvement have a strong and positive relationship with the Local Community, through continued engagement over a number of years.  Additional planting and walking routes have been delivered within the site in order to support the residents and to help facilitate greater permeability around Haddenham.
