Richborough's Proposed Devt
Richborough Estates' letter

As we reported previously, Richborough Estates is seeking planning permission to build 72 new homes on a 12 acres (4.9 Hectares) plot of land at the Northern edge of Churchway (beyond the post office, north of Green Lane, opposite Rosemary Lane). For more details, see here.

Haddenham Parish Council has pointed out to representatives of Richborough Estates that an application on this site would be contrary to the draft Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (the site being assessed as unsuitable for development) and that pursuing the project, including a local public consultation exercise, "would be wasting their client's money".

Nevertheless, over the last few days, letters like to one pictured (click on either image to see an enlarged version) have been dropping through the letterboxes of Haddenham residents from 'Engage Planning', acting on behalf of Richborough Estates.

Many Haddenham residents have expressed concerns over the rapid rise in housing numbers already approved for planning in and around the village and it seems likely that some of those will choose to voice their opposition to this latest opportunistic development plan.
