Projects aims

The Wycombe Local Plan (adopted August 2019) allocates around 2,500 new homes in Princes Risborough through a major expansion to the north west of the town.

The PRSRL scheme is the first phase of the Princes Risborough relief road, which we'll build in 3 phases to support the expansion of the town.

The road will:

  • provide a complete alternative route to the existing A4010
  • connect the expansion area with the town
  • support the delivery of new homes
  • ease congestion on existing roads
