As you may be aware, Haddenham is under pressure to receive additional housing, to help satisfy the demand for much needed homes in England. Professor Sir Roderick Floud has written an excellent article which explains how the development of Haddenham needs to fit in to the Aylesbury Vale Plan.
Some individuals (such as those living in other Buckinghamshire villages) and organisations (such as developers who have options to build homes on land surrounding Haddenham) have commented on the AV Plan, suggesting that Haddenham should be earmarked for 500 new homes rather than the 100 that are currently in the Plan.
Few local residents would support this idea, we suspect!
If you would like to have a say in the way Haddenham develops over the next two decades, please come along to a public meeting taking place in the Village Hall on Saturday 31st August, beginning at 1pm.
This will be an interactive workshop, during which village residents and local business leaders will be given the opportunity to voice their opinions about different options for the development of Haddenham. Ultimately, the consensus developed through such meetings will lead to the publication of the Neighbourhood Plan for the village — a document with legal authority to help define future development of Haddenham in the medium term.
