'New Settlement' Thoughts Dribble Out

Home » News » 'New Settlement' Ideas Emerge

The latest draft of the VALP was made available today, Thursday 7th July, for the next stage of public consultation.

Haddenham.net was very critical of the fact that the only reference to the 'new settlement' aspects offered in the latest VALP draft was the bland and rather pathetic statement: "Policy to follow, awaiting further evidence".

Some information has now begun to appear on AVDC's website.

Documents have now been added that provide an insight into the New Settlement Scoping Study.

We have uploaded the primary document and key Appendices — please click on the PDFs below the image — they comprise vital reading material for anyone who values Haddenham as a village-scale community.
