Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan

Home » News » Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan
Draft VALP_Jun2016

Residents of Haddenham will be well aware that the most recent AVDC Local Plan (the strategic planning document that sets out how AVDC will provide new housing and the development of infrastructure over the coming years) was rejected by Government inspectors.

This left Haddenham very vulnerable to speculative planning applications, because our own Neighbourhood Plan had no overriding development strategy into which it could fit. And we all know the potential consequences, as we look ruefully at plans to build on the airfield, on Dollicott, Aston Road, Stanbridge Road and elsewhere in Haddenham. So, "watch this space" as any of those greenfield sites may not remain as spaces much longer!

AVDC is now putting together a revised plan — the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) — and it has already conducted the early stages of public consultation.

The next stages are as follows, and your particular attention is drawn to the meeting in Haddenham village hall on Monday 11th July:

31st May — Members Seminar

13th June — VALP Scrutiny Meeting

15th June — Cabinet Meeting

28th June — Council Meeting

11th July — AVDC Presentation of the VALP at Haddenham VH, from 11.00am until 8.00pm

7th August — 5th September — Consultation Period

In the meantime, if you would like to follow the details of the VALP more closely, here are relevant links:
