Haddenham Resident Protest

A large group of Haddenham residents attended the meeting of AVDC's Strategic Management Development Committee on Wednesday afternoon, 28th January.

The group assembled outside the AVDC offices well before the meeting began, in order to demonstrate their feelings and concerns over the outline planning permission being sought for the glebe and agricultural land bordered by Aston Road and Stanbridge Road.

At issue was not the building of houses on the Aston Road plot per se. Rather, that the planning application makes provision for far more houses than anticipated as part of Haddenham's Neighbourhood Plan. If approved, this application will seriously undermine the NP, as submitted formally to AVDC on Tuesday, and will lead to a further delay in finalising the Plan.

In the meantime, the village of Haddenham remains vulnerable to much greater levels of new house building, as developers see the village as an attractive option.

UPDATE:

Sadly, the Strategic Management Development Committee has voted TO APPROVE the planning application.

The proposals were passed by six votes to three after AVDC councillors accepted the planning officer's recommendations.

A very sad outcome for Haddenham ...
