New plans are in development for a brand new shopping 'courtyard' in Beaconsfield Old Town.

The new scheme follows a previously rejected scheme to add new shops to the area back in 2010.  It would mean three new shops in London End, which would also be home to a new Raymond Blanc restaurant.

There would still be a car park situated behind the development and cars would enter through an archway next to the former bakery.

The new plans are being drawn up by property consultancy firm, Bidwells and if they are accepted the company hope to obtain planning permission by the spring, with the new development opening by Summer 2013.

What do YOU think?  Would a new shopping mews be a good thing for Beaconsfield Old Town?

    This is a great idea and I look forward to seeing what they come up with. I'm sure it will be very tasteful, welcoming and sympathetic to the local architecture. It would be nice if the same attention to detail was considered in other towns - I'm thinking of the new Sainsbury's in Maidenhead and most of Slough town centre!

    I must admit I never really shop in the old town as there isn't much there, unless you want antiques, a guitar or to service your car. A bit more variety would be good.

    I agree - heard on the BBC news again last night about all the shops likely to close this year. The fact that we might have some new ones opening up here can only be good news in my opinion.

    I totally agree with you Kelly. I hope we will be kept updated as the plans become more concrete. I take hope from the fact previous applications have been rejected indicating that the criteria is sufficiently high to rule out anything that would detract from the Old Town's ambience

    For me any business boost to Beaconsfield is a good one as long as it does not adversely affect the feel of the Old Town. I love that both sides of Beaconsfield feel so different and I'd hate for that to change. Raymond Blanc coming? That can only be a great thing for the town.
