Did you find time to offer your comments to AVDC in respect of the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP)? The public consultation closed yesterday, Monday 5th September.
Unless you've been locked away in a darkened room for the last few months, you will know that the VALP contains proposals to create a 'new settlement' here: either surrounding, adjoining, or very close to Haddenham.
If approved, this plan would allow approximately 5,000 new homes to be built around Haddenham over the next few years. (Haddenham currently comprises about 2,200 homes).
Many individual residents have written to AVDC to express their concerns. (Some did not receive an acknowledgement of receipt, but that's another story — we will be exploring that concern with AVDC in the next few days).
Formal submissions to the public consultation process were also submitted to AVDC by Haddenham Parish Council (HPC) and by the Haddenham Village Society (HVS).
They are understandably quite detailed, but are very well written. We hope very much that you will take the opportunity to ready these documents, submitted on behalf of the Haddenham community in an effort to prevent our village being turned into a sprawling urban morass with an absurdly inadequate infrastructure.
You may also be interested in the views of Thame Town Council — their letter is also available above.
Please click on the attached PDFs to access the respective documents.
