The latest version of the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) is now open for public comment.
To read the VALP, see here
Nearly 600 houses are specifically allocated to Haddenham, on top of hundreds already approved on the airfield site and those recently built or currently being built near the station (see p.73 and site plan 16).
The total is approximately 1,059 new homes.
The biggest threat, however, comes from the potential creation of a "new settlement" at Haddenham (see p.68). This potentially adds 4,500 new homes.
Despite the so-called "public consultation" now taking place, the VALP contains nothing (repeat 'nothing') that can be reviewed and assessed by the public on this matter. Despite the magnitude and significance of a potential new settlement, the VALP blandly states:
"Policy to follow, awaiting further evidence".
Please stay abreast - visit the public exhibition being held in the Walter Rose Room of the village hall this Monday, 11th July and come along, if you possibly can, to the public meeting being hosted by the parish council and the Village Society in the village hall on Thursday 28th July, beginning at 7.30pm
In the meantime, keep an eye on this website for regular updates!
