Wycombe Constituency

Richard Phoenix Wycombe Constituency Reform UK

Candidate - Richard Phoenix

[email protected]



Childhood - Having been born in Watford in 1963, I was brought up  by my amazing parents, in Northwood, Middlesex for all of my childhood, with my brothers Mark and Ian.

Career - I am a Chartered Surveyor. Having qualified from Cauldon College, Stoke-on-Trent in 1987, I gained valuable training and experience at Hillier Parker and Phoenix Beard. I established my own practice Phoenix & Partners in 1999, with offices in London and High Wycombe.

Family -  I am married to my very patient and tolerant wife Lizzie and we have two children, Mia and Ben. We have lived in High Wycombe since 2016 and love it here.

Politics – Politics has always been in my blood, having been involved in the Conservative party, UKIP, the Brexit Party and now of course Reform UK. I have been the candidate in several local elections and a General Election candidate in 2017.

National View – This country is great. It has been badly let down by successive governments obsessed with power only. The UK desperately needs political change in the House of Commons, House of Lords and electoral reform.

We need to believe in ourselves, have a vision and march towards our goals, without fear, without being concerned with the opinions of 3rd party leaders of other countries, or unelected institutions. Immigration is putting far too much strain on our national services and high taxes are stifling our industry. We need to slash both of these and put Britain first.


H! - Hospital H! - Homeless  H! - High Street

Hospital - Wycombe

We need a new hospital!

Wycombe Hospital is in disrepair. Built in the 1960s, it is in increasingly precarious condition: Cramped wards, poor ventilation and growing water damage. Currently £2m per year is spent on repairs for a building that will be “not fit for use in the next 5 years”, according to a 2022 report by the Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust.


If elected, I plan to lobby Westminster to totally rebuild it, not simply install an A&E unit and ignore the root of the problem.

Homelessness – Wycombe

Homelessness is widespread, and not limited to those sleeping rough: It can also take the form of couch-surfing or living in temporary accommodation. Charities such as Wycombe Homeless Connection are working hard to rehouse as many as possible, but without change on a national level, they’re fighting an uphill battle.

At the core of ending homelessness is addressing the rising cost of living. The average UK citizen already spends 28% of their income on rent, and are forced to pay ridiculous taxes. Only Reform UK will scrap energy bill VAT, lift the income tax starting point to £20,000 a year, and cut residential Stamp Duty to 0% below £750,000.

To make homelessness a thing of the past, central government, local authorities and charities must work together.

As the Wycombe MP, I would seek to raise the profile of this issue, working with Wycombe Homeless Connection,  OneRecoveryBucks (ORB), Aylesbury Homeless Action Group amongst others, in a coordinated approach with Buckinghamshire County Council.

By the way, more social housing would be a starting point!

High Street - Wycombe

Wycombe is strategically located, with direct and speedy access to both London and Birmingham by train.  The town has an excellent road communication network with the M40 leading to the M25 and the national motorway network.

The industry in Wycombe is diverse and strong.

The out of town retail is diverse and strong.

With a strong community already, I wholeheartedly believe that we can build Wycombe into a major cultural hub - and that starts with the heart of the town: the high street.

As your MP, I’ll put together a task force to revamp Wycombe High Street. This requires a close dialogue with stakeholders - landlords, Buckinghamshire Council and working alongside organisations such as the High Wycombe Regeneration Board, The High Wycombe Society and Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce. The aim would be to sell the High Street to retailers and restaurants to locate here in our High Street, to compete with Beaconsfield and Marlow.

A revamped high street is a revamped Wycombe.

By the way a Wycombe Town Council would be a good start.

By the way also, Reform UK’s pledge to :

‘Abolish business rates for small & medium firms, offset with Online Delivery Tax at 3%, which will create a fairer playing field for High Street and physical versus online businesses’...is a good start!
