Aylesbury Town Centre and its future development

Aylesbury is the County town for Buckinghamshire and its’ historic town centre is the centrepiece of the Garden Town Masterplan. Putting the town centre first and developing its full potential is a key aim of the Garden Town Vision. How we shop and work is changing and we want to ensure that our town centre is fit for the twenty-first century. Regeneration has already benefitted the town with the university area hosting the successful Waterside Theatre and the recently opened Exchange providing a popular and lively space for visitors and residents.

Going forward, our ambition for the Town Centre is that:

In 2033 Aylesbury’s town centre will be a thriving community and commercial heart. It will be a destination, a place to live and a place of exchange, commerce, and leisure that goes beyond just retail. The Garden Town is supported by a greater mix of uses and activities across a wider central area supporting long-term population and economic growth.”

The Masterplan identifies eight opportunity areas within the town and sets out design principles for each. Despite the impact of the pandemic, exciting times are ahead for Aylesbury town centre with transformational change already being planned for Kingsbury and Market Square, We are also focussing on how we can transform the station quarter and the Waterside north area of the town, to create a high quality gateway and environment that will attract people into the centre.
