What is the Waddesdon Neighbourhood Plan
The Waddesdon Neighbourhood Plan (WNP) is the emerging development plan for the Waddesdon Neighbourhood Area, covering the same area as the Parish, for the plan period of 2013-2033. On adoption it will form part of the Development Plan, which planning applications in that area will be assessed against. The WNP is a comprehensive plan which has policies which look to shape development across the parish specifically allocating land North East of Waddesdon Village for the development of approximately 75 new homes. Additionally, the plan designates 8 local green spaces across the village. The plan further supports infill development, economic expansion and the enhancement of community facilities within the settlement boundary. Overall the plan emphasises the importance of sustainable development and the importance of good design within the conservation area, aiming to preserve and enhance the unique historical character of the village.
