Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan: Issues and Options consultation

Important Public Consultation on the new Issues & Options proposals for the Aylesbury Vale Plan – 23 October – 4 December 2015 

The Plan will include the overall strategy for future development in the District, alongside site allocations, and development management policies. We undertook the first consultation stage (Regulation 18) in April-May 2014 when we asked for comments on the scope and content of the Plan. This stage was accompanied by a ‘Call for Sites’, where developers and landowners were asked to inform us of sites they wish to be considered as part of the Plan process.

Following this early consultation, and a series of stakeholder forums that were held in late 2014, work has been progressing on the evidence that underpins the Plan. This evidence has informed the next stage of the Plan: the Issues and Options consultation document, on which we are consulting you now. The consultation document is accompanied by a questionnaire which we invite you to use to form your response, or you can simply email or write to us with any comments related to the issues and options (and the evidence).

The consultation document and questionnaire are available to view on our website (from 5pm on 23 October):–-issues-and-options-consultation

The evidence which has informed the content of the Issues and Options consultation document is also available on our website:

As mentioned above, we are also asking for your comments on the key evidence documents and ask you to let us know whether you consider that they have come to the correct conclusions. The key evidence documents are:

Central Buckinghamshire Housing and Economic Development Needs Assessment (HEDNA)

This document assesses the housing and economic needs of the Central Buckinghamshire area (which includes Aylesbury Vale, Wycombe and Chiltern districts) and splits these needs for each individual district.

Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA)
