A 20% increase in Planning fees is expected to come into force on 17 January 2018.

If you have submitted an application to us please ensure that the fee is paid in full and that all documents submitted to us comply with  all statutory requirements and those on our Icon for pdf Local List [73.08KB]. If this is not the case, we will be unable to validate your application and thus a further fee may become payable if the information we require is not received prior to 17 January 2018.

The draft Statutory Instrument, which was approved by Parliament on 19/12/17,  can be viewed at Statutory Instrument re Planning Fees 2018



As from 16 October 2017 South Bucks & Chiltern District Councils decided to combine their Planning staff into a joint service. From 4 December 2017 the combined South Bucks & Chiltern Planning service is operating from the Council Offices in Amersham at King George V House, King George V Road, Amersham HP6 5AW. All contact phone numbers and email addresses for officers within the new combined Planning service  remain the same.

The joint Planning service is also in the process of digitising old paper records so paper records are not immediately available over the counter at either office. If you are unable to access planning records through the public website for either Council, please email your enquiry to for guidance on how access to specific records can be provided.
