Westbury Parish Council has submitted an application to Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) to designate the parish as a neighbourhood area with a view to developing a neighbourhood plan. AVDC is undertaking a six week consultation, commencing on 7 June, seeking the views of people who live or work in the area.
Neighbourhood plans are a key part of the government's localism agenda to give local people more of a say on issues like where new homes, shops and offices should be built, and the design of new developments.
One of the first steps in developing a neighbourhood plan is that the parish council has to apply to the district council to be designated as a neighbourhood area.
AVDC is inviting comment on the application particularly from those living or working in the area, during a 6 week public consultation, fulfilling the requirements of The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (As amended) PART 2 Regulation 6.
The public consultation on the boundary of the proposed neighbourhood area starts on 7 June and runs until 19 July.
To see the detailed maps of the proposed neighbourhood areas please visit the neighbourhood planning consultations web page. Alternatively, residents can request to see all the relevant information at the AVDC offices.
