VALP draft approved by cabinet for public consultation

16 Jun 2016

Last night Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) cabinet recommended  the draft Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) to go before full council on Tuesday 28 June for approval for public consultation.

Councillors will be asked to approve the draft Local Plan for consultation which, once finalised, will provide the framework for how the district will grow and develop in the coming years.

Carole Paternoster, Cabinet Member for Growth Strategy commented:

“Following the recommendations made by the VALP Scrutiny Committee and Cabinet, the draft Local Plan is now ready to go before full council for approval for public consultation.

The plan is vital to the future development of the Vale and will have a major effect on all residents. A huge amount of work has gone into making sure it will be successful when submitted to government at the end of this year.  The draft  VALP is very much ‘work in progress’ – we still have another six months work to do on the draft plan. By the end of this month it will be ready for public consultation and I urge all residents to send in their comments during the consultation period so that these can be taken into account when the it is finalised later this year.”

The plan will then be published for public consultation on Thursday 7 July, for a period of over eight weeks, ending on Monday 5 September. This consultation will include a series of public exhibitions and a more streamlined online system for submitting comments.
