VALP 03b

AVDC has issued an update on the progress of its 'Local Plan'.

The background evidence required to develop the draft Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) is "progressing well" after the public consultation on 'Issues and Options' ended in December 2015.

The draft plan will contain a huge amount of information and supporting evidence, which AVDC staff are compiling from many different sources of research and multiple consultations with organisations and neighbouring authorities, as well as the public.

The next stage of the consultation process is due to take place from early July through to early September 2016, for a period of eight weeks. Parish Councils and other consultees, as well as the general public, will be invited to comment.

Thereafter, feedback from the consultation will be analysed, the final plan compiled and submitted for assessment by an independent inspector in early spring 2017. Once approved, AVDC planners "expect it to be adopted by mid-2017".

AVDC will be hosting a VALP seminar for parishes on Wednesday 13th July at The Gateway in Aylesbury, starting at 6.30pm, which members from all parish councils will be invited to attend.

If the general public are also invited, we will publicise that information closer to the date. In the meantime, further information on the VALP can be obtained from Andy Kirkham. His Email: akirkham@aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk

There are some things we can take for granted at Aperitif Recitals and they are that the wine, soft drinks and canap├ęs will be excellent but especially so will be the music. Peter Shepherd, the twenty three year old organist of the Collegiate Church of St Bride Glasgow, lived up to expectations during his recital at St Mary's Church on 18th October when he performed an attractive mixture...
