South Bucks District Local Plan (adopted 1999)

The South Bucks District Local Plan was adopted on 22nd March 1999 as a statutory plan for the District.

Although the plan was prepared in the 1990s, its provisions are broadly in line with the National Planning Policy Framework, which was introduced in March 2012.

In 2007, following direction from the Secretary of State, 75 policies in the South Bucks Local Plan were saved for continued use, and all others therefore expired. The South Bucks Core Strategy was adopted on 22 February 2011, which replaced a further 22 Local Plan policies. There are now 53 saved Local Plan policies in place.

A consolidated version of the Local Plan has been produced showing all saved policies with expired polices struck through. This can be downloaded, along with a list of saved policies, on the right hand side of this page.
