Planning permission 03

A public examination of the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan is currently underway in Aylesbury.

On Tuesday 17th July at 10am the Inspector will consider HAD007 (315 dwellings to the North of Rosemary Lane).

Forty-five minutes have been set aside to hear comments from three parties who have submitted statements.

Persimmon and Cala Homes contend that the site should extend to the north and presumably accommodate more houses.

It's unclear if members of the public will be given the opportunity to speak. However, combined with the 72 dwellings proposed across the road on land opposite Rosemary Lane (currently under appeal), this has the potential to be one of the largest housing developments Haddenham has yet seen.

Also, due to the disconnected nature of the location, its approval will likely increase the level of traffic significantly as people drive through the village for schools, shops and the railway station.

If residents are concerned about the impact on Haddenham and are able to attend, then they are welcome to show support for those who are working hard to defend the village.

Venue: The Gateway, Gatehouse Road, Aylesbury HP19 8FF.
