Lightwood Strategic Application

Home » News » Lightwood Strategic

Today (Wednesday 30th September 2015) Haddenham Parish Council received notification that an application has been made by Lightwood Strategic for a judicial review to quash the decision by AVDC to make the Haddenham Neighbourhood Plan.

As keen followers of the Neighbourhood Plan will know, Lightwood Strategic is the development company that had previously applied for planning permission to develop the Aston Road/Glebe site opposite Tiggywinkles.

Their application was for permission to build 280 houses.

The Haddenham Neighbourhood Plan limited the house building on this site to about 50 homes.

Clearly unhappy with this decision, the company is now set on legal action' arguing that AVDC's decision to 'make' (i.e., accept and publish) the Plan was unlawful.

We will provide updates on this situation as soon as we hear more.
