New local plan options consultation: feedback

This page refers to consultation on the Wycombe district local plan options consultation in 2014. For current content please see New local plan.

We are working on a long term plan for the district called the Wycombe District Local Plan. The plan will recognise the high environmental quality of the district and set out where best to accommodate the homes, jobs and infrastructure we need in the most sustainable way.

Between 3 February 2014 and 21 April 2014 we conducted a full public consultation, with events held across the district as well as an ongoing exhibition in High Wycombe Library. We received over 1,700 responses to the consultation.

This report analyses the responses we received to the consultation held between February and April 2014 and pulls out the key themes. It also summarises all the responses we received on a wide range of topics, including the broad options, area-specific proposals, and supporting technical evidence.

This report provides summaries for the proposed policies contained in chapter 6 of the Options Consultation Document.

This statement explains the various methods which we used to publicise our new Local Plan consultation.

A summary of the issues and questions that were raised at the public meetings and workshops that were organised as part of the Local Plan consultation in February and March 2014.

During the consultation period, our consultants Qa Research carried out a market research exercise. The findings are set out in this report, which will feed into our thinking in developing the next stage of our new Local Plan.
