Aston Road: HPC Statement

Aston Road Planning

Given the Secretary of State's disappointing decision on the Aston Road planning application, parish councillor David Truesdale and HPC Clerk Sue Gilbert have prepared the following public statement.

Haddenham Parish Council is disappointed but not surprised given the lengths that this developer and their agents were prepared to go in order to ensure its approval. In the process Haddenham has been left without the core strategy of its Neighbourhood Plan, which had been supported by a large majority of its residents at referendum.

The consultation draft Vale of Aylesbury Vale Local Plan has just been published and allocates 1,059 new homes to Haddenham. It further proposes that this could increase by a further 4,500 homes if Haddenham is designated as the site for a whole new settlement. This may explain why Aylesbury Vale District Council were not prepared to defend Haddenham's Neighbourhood Plan at judicial review last March.

AVDC will explain their new proposals at an all-day roadshow in the Village Hall on 11th July. The Parish Council will be following up with a public meeting. Meanwhile the Parish Council will continue to work with developers to deliver sustainable development on the allocated sites, including Aston Road, to achieve the best for the village.
