Buckingham Neighbourhood Development Plan

Are you interested in finding out more about the plans local landowners and developers have for the future development of Buckingham? The Buckingham Neighbourhood Plan is a legally enforceable planning document, focused just on Buckingham, which allows towns to grow in a planned way, in the locations (and to a local design code) agreed on by residents. The first plan was made in 2015, and it now needs to be renewed.

What is the Buckingham Neighbourhood Development Plan (BNDP) Regulation 14 Consultation?

  • Buckingham Town Council has completed its first review of the Buckingham Neighbourhood Plan. The Council intends to include new policies and replace some older policies. This means the purpose of the review is to create a new, replacement, Buckingham Neighbourhood Development Plan. 
  • This consultation is about the proposed new, replacement, plan for Buckingham in accordance with The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 reg. 14
  • Only written responses can be accepted. These can be made by email to office@buckingham-tc.gov.uk by letter to Buckingham Town Council, Verney Close, Buckingham, MK18 1JP or by completing the digital consultation form. Verbal comments made in relation to this consultation will not be recorded as part of the consultation response. This is to ensure the accuracy of all consultation responses.
