As we all know there are four major developments at various stages of consultation in our village.

Some development is inevitable. However we feel 800 houses is way too many for a village our size and we are concerned that not enough is being promised by any of the developers to ensure that the infrastructure can cope.

We think the number of dwelling needs to be significantly capped and that there are a number of specific issues that need to be addressed to ensure any development benefits the village, rather than destroys it.

Currently there are two activities underway where locals can shape these developments.

Individuals have been objecting in large numbers to the Planning Applications filed at the Aylesbury District Council and many have also been contributing to the Parish Council's Neighbourhood Plan. Both of these actions we fully support.

However there is a third course of action. This involves assembling a group of concerned residents and taking direct, collective action — this can range from just being vocal through to lobbying local MPs and mounting a collective legal challenge.

We are a group of locals who are looking to assemble such a group. We're interested in hearing from anyone from those who just want to offer vocal support through to those who would be willing support a legal challenge financially. There are already small pockets of people who are taking action but we think we'd be stronger if we worked together.

If you are interested in being part of the Haddenham Action Group please let us know. Time is of the essence so please get in touch with us ASAP and share this information with as many people as you can.
