VALP Examination


The Inspector’s Interim Findings on the Aylesbury Vale Local Plan 29.8.18 can be found here.

Following agreement between AVDC and the Planning Inspector on a revised housing target of 28,600 homes and other points raised in his Interim Findings document, the proposed modifications to the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) have now been submitted for his consideration.

For clarity and transparency, the proposed modifications have been put into the public domain. Once they have received his approval they will be published for consultation, which is anticipated to be held over six weeks during October/November. The proposed modifications can be viewed here.

The most substantive piece of work was the allocation of a new site in close proximity to Milton Keynes to fulfil the Inspector’s requirement for new housing allocations in that area. Various pieces of key evidence were commissioned to determine which was the most suitable site to allocate in the VALP.

It's intended that the plan will be adopted by the end of the year, but the timeline will be dependent on how long the Inspector takes to consider any representations and whether he chooses to hold more public hearing sessions prior to producing his final, binding report.
