Still time to comment on the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan

Kingsbrook, Aylesbury

There is still time for residents or interested groups to have their say about the new plan that will manage  housing and growth in Aylesbury Vale until 2033. Consultation ends on the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan on Thursday 14 December at 5.15pm.

The plan aims to meet the need for more than 27,000 houses and deliver other development that Aylesbury Vale needs, whilst protecting the surrounding environment and putting in place the facilities that new residents will need.

Cllr Carole Paternoster, Cabinet Member for Growth Strategy, said: “Getting this incredibly important plan right continues to be our priority. We need anyone with an interest in the future growth and development of the Vale to have a look and give their comments, which the planning inspector will take into account when he looks at our plan.

“I’m pleased to report that already many people have taken the time to have their say since consultation started on 2 November, but we anticipate that many more will comment in these last few weeks. I’d urge everyone not to leave it to the last minute to make the most of this opportunity.”

In the new year the plan, along with supporting evidence and any comments submitted in the public consultation, will be sent to the planning inspector for examination.
