Consultation: Longwick-cum-Ilmer Submission Neighbourhood Plan

This consultation has now closed.


Longwick-cum-Ilmer Parish Council has submitted a neighbourhood plan for its parish area for formal consultation. The plan will give the parish council more control over development in its area.

We are now consulting on this proposed plan before it is submitted for independent examination, which we anticipate will take place later this year.

Purpose and detail

In March 2015, Wycombe District Council designated the Longwick-cum-Ilmer parish area as a neighbourhood area. In June and July 2015 a consultation was carried out on a draft neighbourhood plan for the Longwick-cum-Ilmer parish area. The draft neighbourhood plan was subject to further public consultation in October and November 2015 before being withdrawn in February 2016, following the production of an independent examiner's report.

The parish council has now submitted the revised neighbourhood plan to Wycombe District Council. We must now publish the submission plan and supporting evidence for a statutory six weeks consultation. 

The submitted Longwick-cum-Ilmer neighbourhood plan sets out planning policies that can be used to influence planning applications in the area. The policies are intended to protect the special character of the parish and to encourage development proposals for the benefit of the local community.

The following documents support the proposed plan:
