£4.4million funding secured for Beaconsfield relief road

South Bucks District Council has been awarded £4.4million funding towards the construction of a relief road to support delivery of new homes in Beaconsfield. This funding is part of the £866million worth of investment in local housing projects across the country. The award, announced by the Housing Minister Sajid Javid and Chancellor Philip Hammond, is one of 133 council-led projects across the country that will receive grants to deliver housing developments more quickly.

This bid was written collaboratively by officers from South Bucks District Council and Buckinghamshire County Council.

The Beaconsfield Relief Road proposal has already received £6.1 million through the Bucks Thames Valley Local Enterprise Partnership to help address traffic issues in Beaconsfield and with this additional award Buckinghamshire County Council will now have sufficient funding in place.
