Local Development Scheme

Last updated: 23 February 2021

6. Neighbourhood Development Plans

Neighbourhood Development Plans (NDPs) can be prepared by local communities for local areas such as parishes or specifically defined areas in mainly urban areas. When approved, or ‘made’, these form part of the statutory development plan for the area.

It is up to local communities to choose to prepare an NDP if they wish, not the Council. This is optional – communities do not have to prepare a plan. However, we have a duty to support communities in preparing any plan and we lead on the later stages in terms of arranging the examination and referendum.

The following sections set out the status of NDPs across Buckinghamshire, as at December 2020.
