Sustainability

The Burnham Beeches Special Area of Conservation, Strategic Access Management and Monitoring Strategy (SAMMS), for the Chiltern and South Bucks Local Plan is comprised of two components:

  • Presumption against new homes within 500 metres of Burnham Beeches SAC; and
  • Financial contributions from all net new homes within a defined zone of influence (500 metres - 5.6 kilometres) towards a Strategic Access Management and Monitoring Strategy (SAMMS) at Burnham Beeches SAC.

The zones can be seen on page 8 and the levy charge is on page 14 of the strategy.
