In March 2017 Denham Parish Council began the process of creating a Neighbourhood Development Plan (also known as a Neighbourhood Plan).

In September 2017 the former South Bucks District Council designated the Denham Neighbourhood Area, which covers the whole of Denham Parish Council area.

The Parish Council completed a period of local community engagement on their Plan during June and July 2020 and have submitted the final version to us.

The next stage of the process is for us, as the local authority, to carry out an eight-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 Denham Neighbourhood Plan includes policies that look to shape local development. It has a design focus and seeks to protect local heritage assets, the Colne Valley Park and local water features.

It also designates some areas of local green space.

The plan seeks to protect existing community uses and pubs and to retain employment uses within the area, whilst allowing some redevelopment on specified brownfield sites.

Please see the documents and links at the end of the page for more information.

Please make sure we receive your comments before midnight on 31 January 2021. 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 Neighbourhood Area.
