What is the purpose of this consultation?

In February 2018 Cuddington Parish Council began the process of creating a Neighbourhood Development Plan (also known as a Neighbourhood Plan). In April 2018, the former Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) approved the Neighbourhood area. The area covers the whole of Cuddington Parish Council area.

The Parish Council have now completed a period of local community engagement on their Plan and have submitted the final version to us. The next stage of the process is for us, as the local authority, to carry out a seven-week public consultation on the submitted Plan. This is an opportunity for local people to comment on it before it goes to independent examination.

The Cuddington Plan includes policies that look to shape local development. In particular, the plan seeks to define a settlement boundary; it seeks to protect important local views, protect local heritage assets, influence design of development in the conservation area as well as design in the wider area.

How to submit a comment

You can submit a comment on the Neighbourhood Plan in a number of different ways.

You will need to provide your name and address when responding as planning law states that we cannot accept anonymous comments.

If you would like to be notified of future progress with the Neighbourhood Plan, please indicate this in your response.

Please make sure we receive your comments before midnight on 7 January 2022. Unfortunately, we cannot consider any comments received after that deadline.

What happens next

Following consultation, we will collate the responses and submit them to an independent examiner. The examiner will consider public comments and ensure the Plan meets conditions laid out in the Localism Act and other relevant regulations.

If the Plan passes independent examination, the next stage is a local referendum to see whether the Plan has community support. If it's supported, we will adopt it as part of local planning policy to assess planning applications in the Cuddington Neighbourhood Area.
