Following our 13 January news item, when we confirmed that Chiltern District Council has withdrawn its DDPD in favour of an Emerging Local Plan (2014-2036), this is to remind you that you have until 6th March to input to the initial consultation and the ‘Call for Sites.’
This gives all interested parties the opportunity to submit suggestions for site options they would like the Council to consider for future development within the District. Suggested sites can be for housing, employment uses, town centre uses, community facilities, sport and recreation, mixed uses or other development uses where there is considered to be a specific or general need or opportunity over the period to 2036.
All details can be found at http://www.chiltern.gov.uk/
The PVA was invited, along with other local groups and councillors, to a presentation explaining more, in Great Missenden on 26th January, by CDC’s Graham Winwright,Temporary Planning Policy Manager and CDC Councillor for Sustainable Development, Graham Harris. They’re keen to engage locally to identify issues for inclusion in the Local Plan.
You’ll probably say, “Well, we’ve already done that within the public consultation period for the Draft DPD” but it seems that there’s no guarantee that anything that has been inputted by any group, or local council, to the DDPD will automatically be transferred over to input to this public consultation on the emerging Local Plan, so if you’ve already identified issues and ideas on behalf of your group via the DDPD consultation, you NEED TO REPEAT AND SUBMIT EVERYTHING AGAIN, to guarantee that notice will be taken of your projects and plans. At the same time will you please copy-in Gt Missenden Parish Council so that they can ensure that all groups’ aspirations have been included – Anne Mitchell, Clerk to GMPC, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
