Woodlands Roundabout Update

The design code for the proposed A41/Woodlands roundabout has been submitted to Buckinghamshire Council's planning department for approval. Within this, the broad design principles for the roundabout are detailed.

The council’s planning department is currently carrying out an internal consultation exercise on the proposals, with input from their highways, urban design, ecology, drainage and landscape teams and their feedback on the plans will be shared with Taylor Wimpey soon. 

Once the design code has been approved by the council, a reserved matters planning application for the roundabout will be submitted. This application will need to be consented by the council and it is expected that it will take around four months to be determined. 

If approval on the reserved matters application is granted, Taylor Wimpey will review any planning conditions before work starts. As an estimate, and subject to planning permission, the construction of the roundabout will begin towards the end of 2024 and will take approximately 11 months to complete. 

As the Eastern Link Road (South), which heads north from the proposed Hampden Fields development towards Kingsbrook, will not be completed before the A41/Woodlands roundabout is finished, there will be an interim layout for the roundabout until the eastern link road is opened to traffic.
