Haddenham airfield is one of the primary areas defined by our Neighbourhood Plan as a suitable area for new housing. In contrast to the behaviour of some developers in recent months, owners Lands Improvement have maintained a good dialogue with Haddenham Parish Council, and have consulted in a stepwise and effective way with local residents through public meetings and workshops.
Their plans for the Airfield have taken an important step forward this week when Aylesbury Vale District Council resolved to grant outline planning permission for development on Land to the South of Haddenham Airfield.
Lands Improvement's proposals for the site include up to 233 new homes, 4.85 hectares of employment land; a new community pavilion and sports pitches; open space, new footpaths and planting; a retail convenience store and a care home.
Aoife Conacur from Lands Improvement said:
"Our application reflects extensive engagement with the local community during 2014 and 2015 and we are pleased with AVDC's decision yesterday. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took the time to engage with us and we look forward to to working closely with the community in the future."
