Hazlemere Neighbourhood Plan submission consultation – Your Voice Bucks – Citizen Space

In September 2021, the Parish of Hazlemere was designated a Neighbourhood Area by Buckinghamshire Council. This followed an application by Hazlemere Parish Council.

Hazlemere Parish Council has now completed a period of local community engagement on the Hazlemere Neighbourhood Plan and have submitted the final version to Buckinghamshire Council.

The next stage of the process is for Buckinghamshire Council, 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 Hazlemere Neighbourhood Plans policies relate to:

  • Delivering homes for first time buyers and downsizers
  • Protecting and improving green Infrastructure
  • Delivering zero carbon buildings
  • Promoting sustainable transport
  • Planning for sustainable development at Amersham Road / Tralee Farm


What happens next

Following consultation, Buckinghamshire Council 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 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.
