As many local residents are aware, AVDC has received a planning application for 'Change of Use' in respect of the Green Dragon, so that it can be converted into a residential property.
The Parish Council and the Haddenham Village Society have each voiced a strong opposition to this application and have submitted robust and well-articulated arguments in favour of retaining the Green Dragon as a pub.
AVDC is open to comments from individuals as well as from representative groups and the Village Society would like to encourage as many local people as possible to submit their own individual views through AVDC's planning portal.
Although it may be tempting to make emotional pleas when commenting on planning applications, it is very important that any arguments offered are strictly relevant to the factors that are taken into account when planning decisions are taken. The planning authorities will simply ignore any input that does not focus on such formal matters.
If you feel inclined to offer your personal comments on this planning application, you may find it helpful to read the arguments put forward by the Parish Council and the Village Society first. To do so, simply click on each of the PDFs on this page.
To submit your comments online, go the the AVDC portal and in the Search window labelled "Enter a keyword, reference number, postcode or single line of an address" copy-and-paste in this reference: 19/03535/APP
Once you have reached the specific planning application for the Green Dragon, simply click on the 'Make a Comment' tag near the top of the page.
Don't worry — it's much easier than it sounds!
If you choose to comment, please do so very promptly — the deadline is Monday 4th November
