Revoked Local Plan and Core Strategy

This page refers to revoked Wycombe planning policy. See Wycombe Local Plan for the current Wycombe District Local Plan (adopted August 2019) for the spatial strategy and policy framework for Wycombe District up to 2033.

Local Plan (2004)

The revoked Wycombe Local Plan was adopted on 19 January 2004, and contained policies that allocated areas for development and protected other areas from development. It also included a set of policies to guide the location and nature of development. The policies within the Local Plan were partially withdrawn and replaced as a result of the 2004 Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act, the adoption of the Core Strategy in July 2008 and of the Delivery and Site Allocations Plan in July 2013.

The remaining policies were revoked when the new Wycombe District Local Plan was adopted on 19 August 2019.
