More Opportunistic Development?

Home » News » More Opportunistic Development?

The local planning situation currently leaves Haddenham vulnerable to opportunistic development. This is because the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan is still in draft form and AVDC has no formal five year land supply in place.

The parish council has been approached by representatives of Richborough Estates who are looking to build 72 new homes on a 12 acres (4.9Hectares) plot of land at the Northern edge of Churchway (beyond the post office, opposite Rosemary Lane).

Richborough Estates were advised that an application on this site would be contrary to the draft VALP (the site being assessed as unsuitable for development).

Despite this, they have decided to proceed with their planned public consultation event to promote development of the site (see PDF which provides a map of the proposed site).

The consultation event is being held at Haddenham Village Hall (in the Day Centre Lounge) on Tuesday 7th March 2017, from 2pm-3pm for local councillors and from 3pm-7.30pm for members of the public.

Representatives from Richborough Estates will be in attendance.
