Local residents may have seen a recent report in the local press indicating that Rectory Homes had submitted a planning application to AVDC for permission to build 43 homes on land east of Stanbridge Road.
Although the site in question was referenced in Haddenham's Neighbourhood Plan, this location was well down the priority listing indicated in the Plan.
Roderick Floud, Chairman of the Haddenham Village Society and one of the key members of the team who consulted with local residents in order to create the Neighbourhood Plan, had this to say:

So this is jumping the gun in both respects.
It will be interesting to see if AVDC maintains its opposition to development to the east of the Stanbridge road."
