AVDC is advising that, with immediate effect, it will not consider the Housing Policies of a Neighbourhood Plan as a material reason for refusal for planning applications which are contrary to the Neighbourhood Plan!
The exact wording is: "This means that we cannot reject housing applications just because there is a conflict with housing supply policies in a recently made or draft neighbourhood plan."
This is an appalling message for Haddenham and all other local communities in the Vale of Aylesbury that have worked so hard to consult with residents and formulate a Neighbourhood Plan.
So, now what?
