Buckinghamshire Council is beginning work on its new local plan to cover the period up to 2040. This plan will cover the whole of Buckinghamshire identifying how much development is needed, where it should happen and what it will be like. They are asking for views on two important building blocks of the plan.
The first is the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) which sets out how we engage with our residents and businesses, when we make planning decisions either on planning applications or developing our plans. We are consulting on a draft SCI between February 16th and March 22nd.
The second is the Brownfield Call for Sites, sites which we believe will have an important part to play in meeting our development needs in the future. We are asking landowners, developers, house builders, community groups, parish councils and members of the public to respond about brownfield sites that could be included in the new plan for development.
