Planning policy

The Vale of Aylesbury Plan (VAP) was withdrawn on the advice of an independent planning inspector.

We are developing a new plan: the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP). This will include the overall strategy for the district, alongside site allocations (where needed), and development management policies.

Consultation for the draft Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan closed on Monday 5 September. We are now analysing the comments made. They will be taken into account as the final plan is drafted. The evidence and sustainability appraisals will be finalised and the final version of the plan will be prepared for March 2017.

An updated Position Statement for the Council’s 5 Year Housing Land Supply (August 2017) is now available.

A new approved Local Development Scheme (LDS) (May 2017) updates for the latest plan timetable and documents to be produced.

The Council remains committed to also producing a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).
