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:
"This particular site is in the Neighbourhood Plan (Policy HD6) but it was noted as a reserved site, to be released on 1st April 2024 if the other allocated sites are not delivered by then or if the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) requires further housing for Haddenham.
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."
Given the way that AVDC has tended to ignore some aspects of Haddenham's Neighbourhood Plan in making its planning decisions in recent months, we will watch with interest the outcome of this planning application. Stay tuned ....
