A planning application for Little Chalfont Park was submitted to the planning authority Buckinghamshire Council in 2021 (registration number is PL/21/4632/OA). Following a refusal by the Planning Committee in 2022 the application was consented at appeal in early 2023. The next stage in the planning process will be a reserved matters (detailed) application submitted to Buckinghamshire Council in due course.
The planning application has been submitted on behalf of Biddulph (Buckinghamshire) Ltd to bring forward a new neighbourhood at the former golf course site and Homestead Farm between Lodge Lane and Burtons Lane to the south east of Little Chalfont. See below for more background to the proposals.
The Council’s statutory consultation period took place between 14 December 2021 and 13 January 2022. Please visit the Council’s planning portal to view the application.

The new proposals at Little Chalfont Park will provide much needed new homes in a high quality landscaped setting, including the potential for affordable housing and provision for the elderly, a new primary school and nursery, community hub and valley park, improvements to junctions on the A404 and public transport infrastructure, and pedestrian routes and cycleways. The Little Chalfont Park site is located adjacent to the existing employment site on Lodge Lane. You can also click here to view the background exhibition boards.
As a first step, we asked to hear your views about Little Chalfont and your ideas for the future of the Little Chalfont Park site to help us develop the initial Vision. We asked what you “like” and “dislike” about Little Chalfont and the area around the former golf course and your ideas for the new neighbourhood itself.
The first stage of consultation closed on 23 August 2021 and we assessed the comments received to feed to the design team as they prepared the Vision for the site. This Vision was reported back to the community via Zoom on Wednesday 15 September 2021.
The Zoom presentation was recorded and can be viewed below. In addition, the presentation slides are also available to view in pdf format here. A newsletter was delivered to the Little Chalfont community summarising the Vision and asking for comments. It can be downloaded here.
Comments received on the Vision have helped shape the planning submission proposals which were presented on 20 October 2021.
