What is the purpose of this consultation?

In 2016, The Ivers Parish Council applied for a Neighbourhood Area covering the whole of the parish. The was approved by South Buckinghamshire Council in November 2016. 

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 public consultation on the submitted plan. This is an opportunity for local people to comment on it before it goes to independent examination. 

The Ivers Neighbourhood Plan includes policies that look to shape local development. In particular, the plan seeks to:  

  • Designate Local Green Spaces
  • Maintain gaps between settlements
  • Protect the heritage and character of the various settlements in the parish
  • Promote sustainable travel
  • Improve air quality
  • Retain and enhance community facilities
  • Support high quality design
  • Protect commercial and service related uses in the village centres.

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.

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.
