Milton Keynes

The Plan:MK Schedule of Main Modifications Consultation was held between 31st October and 12th December 2018. The Inspector's Report on the examination of Plan:MK was issued on the 12th February 2019 which found that subject to main modifications, the plan is sound.

Plan:MK is on track to be adopted by Full Council on 20th March 2019 and early review proposed under Main Modification 2, Call For Sites is anticipated before end of 2019.

Wycombe
 The Wycombe District Local Plan was submitted for examination in March 2018.  Currently anticipate the publishing of Main Modifications for consultation at the beginning of February 2019, although the Inspector has said that they expect to provide their report to the Council by 28 March 2019.

Wycombe District Council is included in a future unitary merger with Chiltern, South Bucks and Aylesbury Vale.

Aylesbury Vales

The emerging local plan was submitted for examination in February 2018.  

On 6th December 2018, the Inspector noted that the proposed housing requirement was too low and that Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) should consider how it would deal with the shortfall in land supply, suggesting that this could be through the allocation of additional sites and/or the identification of broad areas for growth, with more detail to be set out in an early review.

The Council responded to this on 21st February 2019, stating that the Council should seek to identify land for just an additional 500 dwellings and that there is no need for an early review of the plan. The Inspector issued a response on 6th March 2019 in which he agreed with the Council’s comments on the extent of the modifications.

It appears that the Inspector is keen to work with AVDC to get a plan adopted, however, given the extent of his concessions on the modifications required to make the plan sound, it is considered that there may be further objections to the plan raised in the upcoming consultation to be addressed by the Inspector.
