Core Strategy Background Documents

The Council has conducted or commissioned various studies to provide a robust and credible evidence base for the adopted South Bucks Local Plan and Core Strategy. A few relevant studies have also been prepared by Buckinghamshire County Council. The Council is also preparing an evidence base for the Emerging Local Plan which will be added to as the plan progresses.

The evidence base studies have been used in preparing the South Bucks Core Strategy, ensuring that the spatial strategy and related Core Policies are sound. These studies address issues including housing need, housing land supply, development viability, townscape character, employment land, infrastructure requirements and many more. The evidence studies listed below are divided into different topic areas:

Housing and Gypsies and Travellers


Employment and Retail


Environment and Flood Risk


Transport, Infrastructure and Accessibility


Sustainability Appraisal
