Most residents of Haddenham will be familiar with the current planning application to build up to 350 homes on glebe land bounded by Aston Road, Stanbridge Road and Willis Road.
Although the closing date for public comment to the AVDC planning department has now passed, two groups have recently submitted formal objection letters
The first was from Haddenham Parish Council, with a well-argued letter written by David Truesdale, Chairman of the HPC Planning sub-committee.

This second letter is particularly wide ranging, and provides strong arguments to help dissuade the planning officers from approving the glebe development.
