Buckingham Neighbourhood Development Plan Working Group

Buckingham’s Neighbourhood Development Plan (BNDP) became a legal document in 2015, after being positively approved in a town wide referendum, giving residents a say in where and what development they want. Its policies have been used in planning decisions for Buckingham since then.

Since 2015 there have been many changes to how we live, work and shop. Some, such as home working and online shopping, were already present before the pandemic but lockdowns have accelerated adoption of new habits. The town’s population has also increased, from the 12,000 of the 2011 census to more than 14,000 in the 2021 census, and today is heading towards 16,000 as further housing developments are completed.

Due to this, Buckingham Town Council will be refreshing the Neighbourhood Plan to ensure that the plan works towards building a future Buckingham that suits its residents, businesses and visitors. The new plan will set out fresh policy ideas to ensure the vibrancy of our historic market town.

A working group made up of councillors and local representatives meet monthly to discuss ideas and complete the work required to produce a new plan. If you would like to provide input, or to find out more, please contact the Town Council Office on office@buckingham-tc.gov.uk or on 01280 816 426.
