I am writing to invite you to a Design Workshop on Paradigm Housing Group's early proposals for a Rural Exception Site planning application at Land off High View in Chalfont St Giles.

Paradigm is a local housing association and we currently own and manage over 180 homes in the Chalfont St Giles Parish, and over 2,500 homes within 5 miles of the village centre. Please visit our website for more information.

We are holding two Design Workshop sessions for immediately neighbouring residents and stakeholders on Saturday 20th July at the Chalfont St Giles Guide Hut (further details below).

Why should you attend?

As part of our commitment to delivering affordable homes for local people, we are currently exploring early ideas to bring forward a Rural Exception Site planning application at Land off High View (please see site location plan overleaf). A Rural Exception Site is a specific type of planning application which requires most of the new homes to be affordable and reserved for people who can demonstrate a local connection to Chalfont St Giles. There would be a mix of home types and tenures to meet a range of needs.

We want to hear your views at this early stage, and so we are holding two "Design Workshop" sessions for immediately neighbouring residents and stakeholders on Saturday 20th July at The Guide Hut, School Lane, Chalfont St Giles, HP8 4JJ:

  • Session 1: 9am — 10.30am
  • Session 2: 10.45am — 12.15pm

The Workshops will be an opportunity to talk about the details of the site and the essential qualities of the village, as well as to discuss specific areas of concern and opportunities for improvements.

We will use your feedback to inform the design process over the coming months, before holding further consultation events later in the year.

Housing Need Survey

We recently also sent a Housing Need Survey to all residents in Chalfont St Giles. Whilst the results of the survey will help to inform our proposals for this site, the Survey is also designed to allow Paradigm to build on our understanding of the wider housing market and need for affordable homes in Chalfont St Giles.


If you would like to attend one of the two sessions (both of which will cover the same topics), I would be grateful if you could RSVP to Beth Park by emailing or calling 020 7566 7966.

Paradigm is committed to working with local communities and stakeholders to deliver beautifully designed, affordable homes to benefit both new and existing residents.

If you have any questions relating to this, please contact me or Beth (details above) in the first instance. We look forward to hopefully seeing you on the 20th July.
