We want your views on the draft RAF Halton Supplementary Planning Document

Supplementary planning documents provide guidance on policies in the adopted local plans in Buckinghamshire and should be read in conjunction with the local plan to which they relate.

They are a material consideration when determining planning applications.

About the draft RAF Halton plan

The document sets out our plan for an attractive neighbourhood that reflects the sites’ military and cultural heritage and connection to the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

  • the creation, enhancement and restoration of woodland, parkland and open spaces
