Wycombe development 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.

In considering planning applications, we are required to make the decision in accordance with the Development Plan, unless material considerations indicate otherwise. This has led to the current planning system being often referred to as "plan-led".

The development plan for the Wycombe district is made up of the following documents:

We have also set out a timetable for preparing a new Wycombe District Local Plan. This will set housing targets for the district, address other strategic housing issues including housing and mixed use allocations and policies for the protection and provision of employment land. It will review the existing Core Strategy and also review and as appropriate replace all remaining saved policies from the current Wycombe District Local Plan.
