The Inspector has arranged for further hearings on the VALP and these will take place from Tuesday 13 April to Friday 16 April 2021. Details on these hearings sessions can be found on the Hearing Sessions: VALP Main Modifications 2021 page. The hearings will be available to watch live on the Buckinghamshire Council webcast page.
The Further Main Modifications consultation was held 15 December 2020 until 9 February 2021. Please visit the Further Main Modifications consultation page for more details. These were a second stage of Main Modifications and are different to the ones we consulted on in late 2019.
Following completion of the examination hearings and the publication of the Inspector’s Interim Findings in 2018, the council prepared and consulted on a set of Main Modifications in 2019. The consultation on the proposed Main Modifications to the VALP ran from 5 November until 17 December 2019. Please visit the Main Modifications 2019 page for more details.
The most substantive change from the Main Modifications was the allocation of a new site in close proximity to Milton Keynes to fulfil the Inspector’s requirement for new housing allocations in that area. Various pieces of key evidence were commissioned to determine which was the most suitable site to allocate in the VALP.
