Summary of key points:

  • Chiltern and South Bucks Green Belt Assessment Part Two
  • Reference No: 4.045
  • Part One General Area No. 9f
  • Area Name: Land Adjacent Curlew and Shangri-La
  • Hectares: 0.96
  • Boundary Assessment: It is not possible to identify a boundary that is permanent and defensible in accordance with NPPF requirements. It is not possible to define any kind of boundary at all to the north as the site appears to form an arbitrary portion of an extensive and open field. The remaining sides of the site are soft boundaries which offer no permanent or defensible qualities. The site is therefore entirely inappropriate as a new Green Belt boundary and fails to demonstrate NPPF compliance.
  • Green Belt Purpose Assessment: Not applicable
  • Exceptional Circumstances Assessment: Not applicable
