We want to hear the views of local residents and organisations on the modified Neighbourhood Plan for Winslow.

In February 2013, the Parish of Winslow was designated a Neighbourhood Area by the former Aylesbury Vale District Council, now Buckinghamshire Council. This followed an application by Winslow Town Council.

The original Winslow Neighbourhood Plan was adopted in 2014. With the Neighbourhood Plan now being over 7 years old as well as significant changes to the village, the Town Council decided to review it.

Winslow Town Council has completed a period of local community engagement on the modified version of 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 Neighbourhood Plan before it goes to independent examination.

The modifications to Winslow Neighbourhood Plan include policies include:

  • Expanding the settlement boundary
  • Updating policies to reflect changes in policy at the local and national level 
  • Enhancing community facilities

How to submit a comment

You can submit a comment in one of the following ways:

If you have any questions about this consultation, please email us at neighbourhoodplanning@buckinghamshire.gov.uk or phone us on 01296 383 698.

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 11 August 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.

As this is a modification plan, the examiner will determine whether the changes are substantial enough to warrant a referendum.

If the plan passes independent examination, the next stage will be to either:

  • make the plan (if a referendum is not required), or 
  • to hold a local referendum (if one is required)
