The singular Subject (here, Dick) remains SINGULAR despite the Additive Phrase

hence "Plans" is CORRECT.

hope its clear now

I don't have a link, but Nitya34 is 100% correct. All the phrases below are singular as long as X is singular:

X along with Y
X accompanied by Y
X as well as Y

The only way to make a compound subject is to use the conjunction "and". "X and Y" is a plural construct.
