Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
