Wycombe Local Plan

This page refers to current Wycombe planning policy. See  New local plan for updates on the developing broad spatial strategy and policy framework for Wycombe District up to 2033.

The Wycombe Local Plan was adopted on 19 January 2004, after an extensive preparation and consultation process and contains the policies that will be of most interest to residents of the district. On its proposal maps it "allocates" particular areas of land for development and designates other areas to be protected from development. It also includes a set of policies to guide the location and nature of development.

As a result of the 2004 Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act, the Adopted Local Plan was saved for three years as part of the transition arrangements for the new Local Development Framework system. From 27 September 2007, and following the adoption of the Core Strategy in July 2008 and of the Delivery and Site Allocations Plan in July 2013, only some of the policies contained within the Adopted Local Plan have been saved.
