It will come as no surprise to residents of Dollicott that building work has started on land to their immediate north.
However, this activity did raise a few eye-brows among those in Haddenham who are particularly keen to monitor local planning applications — not least the Planning Committee of Haddenham Parish Council.
It transpires that the CALA homes development for 25 homes on Dollicott was approved by AVDC on 28th October. The Parish Council did not receive any notification that the approval had been granted and apparently this is not the first time such a lack of communication has occurred.
How can a situation like this arise?
Your editor can imagine two possible explanations:
Either AVDC regards the local political role of the parish council as totally irrelevant — to the extent that it doesn't even need to extend the courtesy of letting Haddenham councillors know of planning permissions granted in Haddenham;
or AVDC is incapable of carrying out the most basic of its administrative responsibilities to a satisfactory level of competence.
