A country park in South Bucks which will include an off road cycle circuit and a mountain bike trail has received planning permission.

Once developed, the 22 hectare site will be open to the public all year, and will also provide footpaths and jogging tracks, children's play facilities and a café with rooms for community use.

Leader of the council Nick Naylor said: "This is an exciting development for the council which has received overwhelming public support.

“We are turning an underused facility into something of far wider benefit to the community to support our aims to improve the public health of residents by expanding their opportunities for open space leisure."

The landscaping works are due to start in early 2019 and the project will be completed in early 2021.

The site will be formally designated as a country park by the council's cabinet at its December meeting.
