Please note that due to the formal nature of this consultation, and to ensure that the Council has all the relevant information, all comments should be made using the Response Forms. Before completing the forms, please refer to the Guidance Notes on how to comment.

Next Steps

Comments received in writing by 5pm on the 9th April 2018 will be submitted to an independent examiner who will assess to see if the plan meets the basic conditions as set out in the regulations, taking into account representations received. Assuming the plan passes the examination, possibly with modifications, the District Council will then undertake a referendum within a defined area.  The referendum area will at least cover the parish area of Chalfont St Giles but may be expanded as a result of the examination to include adjoining areas. If as a result of the referendum 50% or more of those people who voted support the plan then it will be made part of the Development Plan for Chiltern District.

You should note that at this stage although comments received in accordance with the above procedures will be taken into account, the Council will not be sending individual acknowledgements or replies.
