Consultation on plan for Iver
An information session is set to be held at Iver Village Hall on Wednesday, February 24 at 6pm, at which people will be able to find out more about the emerging local plan, which South Bucks District Council and Chiltern District Council have drawn up.
The plan draws up how future development in both districts could take place between now and 2036, and how government housing quotas in the two areas could be fulfilled.
This could involve building on some areas of green belt land, and people are being encouraged to go along to the meeting to find out more.
A public consultation on the plan ends on March 14, and Iver Parish Council want people to be as knowledgeable as possible about the plan before responding.
The meeting on February 24 will be attended by Ralph Bagge, leader of South Bucks District Council, as well as Nick Naylor, portfolio holder for sustainable development.
A statement from Iver Parish Council said: “South Bucks District Council is preparing a new local plan. They have identified parcels of green belt land to consider whether they should or should not be removed from the green belt and be developed.
“If they are removed from the green belt and developed, they could double the size of Iver and Iver Heath.
“At the moment, the council are consulting the public before making a decision.”
Other parish and town councils in the affected areas, including Beaconsfield and Chalfont St Peter, have also held similar meetings in recent weeks.
