We want to hear the views of local residents and organisations on the Neighbourhood Plan for Wooburn and Bourne End.

In February 2015, the Parish of Wooburn and Bourne End was designated a Neighbourhood Area by the former Wycombe District Council, now Buckinghamshire Council.

This followed an application by Wooburn and Bourne End Parish Council.

Wooburn and Bourne End Parish Council has completed a period of local community engagement on the Neighbourhood Plan and have submitted the final draft 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 a final opportunity for local people to comment on the modified plan before it goes to independent examination.

The Wooburn and Bourne End Neighbourhood Plans policies relate to:

  • Conservation areas and heritage assets
  • Residential infill and quality design
  • Access and layout of new infrastructure developments
  • Parking applications for new developments and existing properties
  • Conservation area character assessments
  • Development impact on watercourses, hedgerows and bats
  • Safeguarding community facilities and public houses
  • Designation of local green spaces and separation of settlements in Wooburn and Bourne End Neighbourhood Area
  • New link road width and bus service
  • Slate Meadow site entrance
  • Preserving the character of Hawks Hill and Harvest Hill area

What happens next

Following consultation, we will collate the responses and submit them to an independent examiner.

If the plan passes independent examination, the next stage is a local referendum to see whether the Plan has community support.

If it is supported, we will adopt it as part of local planning policy to assess planning applications in the Neighbourhood Area to which the plan relates.
