After submitting the Wycombe District Local Plan in March 2018 to the Secretary of State for Examination by an independent Planning Inspector, public hearings were held over the summer of 2018. In February 2019, we consulted on the Inspector’s Proposed Main Modifications to the Plan. The Inspector considered the additional comments received and issued her formal report. The examination of the plan, and public consultation in connection with this, is now complete.
The Inspector’s report concluded that the Plan is “sound”, subject to the modifications appended to the report. This meant that the Council can proceed with adopting the Plan provided it accepts the Inspector’s recommended modifications. The Inspector’s report, including the detailed schedule of Main Modifications, is on the Council’s website at: www.wycombe.gov.uk/wdlpexamination
Cabinet and Full Council have considered the Inspector’s Report and adoption of the Wycombe District Local Plan at special meetings held on 19th August 2019 and adopted the Plan.
A Statement of Adoption is appended to this letter or can be found on the Council’s website at https://www.wycombe.gov.uk/pages/Planning-and-building-control/Adopted-Wycombe-planning-policy-and-guidance/Wycombe-Local-Plan.aspx.
