Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan – Issues and options consultation

Progress on the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) has reached a key stage

In October we published an issues and options document and asked for comments on this, along with the accompanying evidence studies. The consultation ran until the 4 December 2015. This was the second public consultation stage in the new Local Plan’s preparation and it included nine potential options for distributing new development. We also produced a background note on the options.

The issues and options document was considered by the VALP Scrutiny Committee on 14 October, Cabinet on 15 October and full Council on 21 October

A series of public exhibitions were held during the consultation period. The panels displayed at the exhibitions are available to download.  Please note that if you wish to print these, you will need to change the print settings to A4 or A3.

The representations have been summarised for publication purposes. Please note that officers have input a summary where not provided or summarised longer comments.
