Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

The Or­chards, West Hyde Lane, Chal­font St Peter

Three Oaks Farm, Roberts Lane, Chal­font St Peter

She added: “The coun­cil has to pre­pare a new Lo­cal Plan re­gard­less of the out­come of the De­liv­ery DPD and so this is not an ad­di­tional cost.”

The cur­rent con­sul­ta­tion will not in­clude or con­sider trav­ellers’ ac­com­mo­da­tion needs as this will form part of later work. PEO­PLE are be­ing asked for their views on fu­ture de­vel­op­ment in Chiltern with the new Lo­cal Plan.

The con­sul­ta­tion marks the out­set of pre­par­ing the plan which will es­tab­lish and plan for the de­vel­op­ment needs of the area un­til 2036.

Work on the Lo­cal Plan is be­ing ac­cel­er­ated fol­low­ing the coun­cil’s decision on Tues­day, Jan­uary 6, to with­draw its De­liv­ery De­vel­op­ment Plan Doc­u­ment (DDPD).

The decision came after Gov­ern­ment Plan­ning In­spec­tor Pa­trick White­head who was ap­pointed to hold an Ex­am­i­na­tion in Pub­lic for the DDPD sus­pended the in­quiry in Novem­ber for up to six months.

He came to the con­clu­sion fol­low­ing the first day of the hear­ing stage of the coun­cil’s DDPD that there are “sig­nif­i­cant short­com­ings re­lat­ing to sound­ness in the doc­u­ment as sub­mit­ted.”

The new plan will even­tu­ally re­place the adopted Core Strat­egy and other rel­e­vant parts of the adopted de­vel­op­ment plan.

The eight-week con­sul­ta­tion ends at 5pm on Fri­day, March 6.

Views are be­ing sought from res­i­dents, groups, or­gan­i­sa­tions, de­vel­op­ers, landown­ers and busi­nesses in Chiltern.

At this stage, the con­sul­ta­tion is not spe­cific but open to iden­ti­fy­ing is­sues of con­cern which the plan should ad­dress, new prin­ci­ples to guide de­vel­op­ment and any spe­cific points con­sid­ered rel­e­vant.

Feed­back from the con­sul­ta­tion will help the coun­cil shape its plan­ning ob­jec­tives and a plan strat­egy, help in­form the level of de­vel­op­ment re­quired, where that should be and plan­ning poli­cies to be used to de­ter­mine plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tions.
