To designate the Neighbourhood Area as applied for by Chesham Bois Parish Council in their application dated 08 May 2024.

Reasons for the decision:

The Chesham Bois Parish Council application was submitted in accordance with Regulation 5A that was inserted into the 2012 Neighbourhood Planning Regulations.
The effect of Regulation 5A is that if a parish council submits a Neighbourhood Area Application to include the whole of its entire parish council area, the Local Planning Authority must designate the whole of the parish area as a Neighbourhood area.

Alternative options considered:

Due to the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012 there are no alternative actions. If a parish council submits a valid application to declare the whole of its parish area as a neighbourhood area the local planning authority has to use its powers to designate the area applied for.
