Bucks Council is due to consider a “licence to occupy” land next to Wycombe Air Park, also known as Booker Airfield, by a new tenant – for a price tag exceeding £500,000.

The proposal involves ‘releasing the land (known as Area A) for employment uses’, which will “generate a significant rental income stream for the council”.

The council owns 26 acres of land next to Wycombe Air Park, known as “Area A/Southside”. Terms have been agreed to let that area.

The council cabinet will now face two recommendations:

‘To conclude negotiations, agree contracts, exchange and complete (with the prospective tenant) on the lease of land adjacent to Wycombe Air Park’.

‘To discontinue negotiations (with the confidential parties)’.

Another option is to “consider a potential sale of the freehold of the property” – but it would mean “forgoing the rental income stream”.

Local councillors have been consulted and are “supportive of the transaction”, a document states.

“These property transactions will facilitate and bring forward the Area A land for commercial uses, as set out in the Wycombe Local Plan and bring employment to this location,” it adds.

The lease is subject to planning, according to a report.

The matter will be discussed during a cabinet meeting, on September 28.
