Glebe Plan

Revised plans have been submitted to Aylesbury Vale District Council in respect of the proposed development of glebe plus agricultural land north of Tiggywiinkles (bounded by Aston Road, Stanbridge Road and Willis Road).

Serious concerns have been raised by some residents of Haddenham, who have been shocked and appalled by the ridiculously short time frame offered for public consultation regarding the revised plans.

It appears from the AVDC website that the revised drawings and amended plans only went online on Christmas Eve and the closing the date for comments has been set for Tuesday 6th January.

Given that most people are on a Christmas — New Year holiday break, this leaves precious little time to download and study the revised plans: effectively, a total of just five working days from now!

In addition, AVDC has posted the second public notice farther down Aston Road, away from the site and left the original notice in place. This is rather confusing!

Given the potential scale of this particular development and importance to the village, many villagers are of the opinion that AVDC Planners shouldn't rush through the consultation process in this manner, particularly over a holiday period.

Please feel free to express your concerns to our Parish Councillors or, better yet, directly to the AVDC Planning Department. The easiest way to do so is online — see below.
