Consultation: publication Bledlow-cum-Saunderton Neighbourhood Plan

  • Consultation closed



Bledlow-cum-Saunderton Parish Council has submitted a neighbourhood plan for its parish area for formal consultation. The plan would give the parish council more control over development in its area. Wycombe District Council is now consulting on this proposed plan before it is submitted for independent examination later this year.

Purpose and detail

In October 2015, Wycombe District Council designated the Bledlow-cum-Saunderton parish area as a neighbourhood area. In January 2016 the parish council surveyed its residents and a consultation followed in February and March 2016 to inform the production of a draft neighbourhood plan for the Bledlow-cum-Saunderton parish area. The draft neighbourhood plan was subject to further public consultation by the parish council in June and July 2016.

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

The Bledlow-cum-Saunderton 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 proposed plan is supported by the following documents:

Printed copies of the neighbourhood plan and supporting documents are available at:

  • Wycombe District Council offices in Queen Victoria Road, High Wycombe, HP11 1BB
  • Princes Risborough Town Council offices, the Princes Centre, Clifford Road, Princes Risborough, Bucks HP27 0DP
