The Parish Council hosted the Annual Parish Meeting in the village hall on Friday evening, 5th May.
The first duty of newly elected Chairman, David Truesdale, was to present retiring Chair, Margaret Aston, with flowers to mark her truly extraordinary 40 years of public service to Haddenham.
The main business of the meeting was to provide an overview of the parish council's activities over the last 12 months and, as most residents might anticipate, issues relating to planning and development featured most prominently.
We hope to bring you a summary of the Chairman's report shortly.
Three development companies also displayed layouts for their housing plots in Haddenham:
Rectory Homes — planning approved by AVDC for the plot on Stanbridge Road, near the Garden Centre
Dandara — planning approved by AVDC for a large development on the Aston Road / Glebe site. (Their detailed layout also showed the sports & leisure space that is to be incorporated).
Aston Hill Land — an outline planning application is still to be submitted for a proposed 284 home development on the north of the village, on the left (West) side of Churchway.
All the displayed layouts can be seen in our Galleries section.
