7. Highways Development Management Guidance

Highways Development Management Guidance

Buckinghamshire Council’s Highways Development Management Guidance is intended to help developers create great places and thriving communities. 

Buckinghamshire is a rapidly growing county and its economy is one of the strongest in the country. As it grows our challenge is to help it remain a thriving, attractive, place to live and work. To do this it is important that growth happens in the right way.

The Guidance is designed to be a practical working guide for developers. The Highways Development Management Guidance includes 31 key guidance points over 4 sections of the report. The sections cover:

  • Key Principles
  • Designing for Transport Inside Developments
  • Managing Developments Transport Impacts
  • Delivering Works on the Highway

Developers should use the Guidance to help them prepare successful proposals quickly and effectively.

This document is just part of the council’s efforts to make development work in Buckinghamshire. Developers are strongly encouraged to discuss their proposals with the Council’s Highways Development Management team at the earliest possible stage to see what other support and advice is available.

The Highways Development Management Guidance was adopted by the former Buckinghamshire County Council in July 2018. The Guidance can be found as a download on this page, alongside the Highways Development Management Guidance Consultation report.
