Following the merger of South Buckinghamshire, Chiltern, Wycombe and Aylesbury Vale Councils, Buckinghamshire Council are currently preparing a new Local Plan that will cover all these areas collectively.
The Plan seeks to deliver sustainable development through better quality places, a more comprehensive and predictable delivery of infrastructure and by meeting the social, economic and environmental needs of Buckinghamshire. So far the Council has undertaken two ‘call for brownfield sites’ consultations but they have now commenced a ‘wider call for sites’ exercise to include greenfield sites.
The Council has started a public consultation seeking sites that can accommodate five or more new dwellings or economic development on sites of 0.25 hectares (or 500 m² floor space) or more and this consultation is running until 11th September 2022.
If you have land which you consider may have future development potential and would be interested in responding to the consultation, we would be pleased to hear from you. Please contact Shannon Fuller.
