Regular readers of this website will only be too aware of the hassles we, as a village community, have been having over the Aston Road / Glebe site.
Most recently, a legal challenge by Lightwood Strategic over the 'making' of our Neighbourhood Plan by AVDC was not contested by the District Council in the High Court, and so Chapter 6 of our Plan was quashed.
Chapter 6 of the NP dealt with preferred site allocations and housing numbers for potential new developments in the future. Thus, the wishes of the local community were effectively overturned by a commercial developer with deep pockets.
However, all is not lost.
We are still relying on the Secretary of State to uphold the principles of 'Localism' as originally expressed through Neighbourhood Plans, by refusing planning permission on the Aston Road / Glebe site.
Formal submissions have been made to the Secretary of State by relevant parties, including one from Haddenham Parish Council.
You can read the case prepared by the Barrister, acting for Haddenham Parish Council, by clicking on the PDF featured below the image on this page. The early part of the document revisits some of the history of the case. You might find it helpful to start reading from the heading: The Status of the HNP — this begins near the top of Page 4.
For those with the stamina to plough through other submissions and relevant documentation relating to the Aston Road / Glebe planning application, the relevant papers can be found here Please be warned: this link can be slow to load.
