Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan

The Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan Proposed Submission is the latest draft of the Local Plan to be published and has been approved for publication and will open for public consultation from Thursday 2 November to Thursday 14 December 2017. Following this, the responses will be collated and submitted along with the Plan and supporting documents for examination by an independent planning inspector. You can find out more on the AVDC website.

I chair the Buckingham Local Area Forum, a group of 36 parishes, local councils, police, health and others, interested in finding solutions for local issues and to share information in the local community. The next meeting agenda for 24 October has just been published and can be found at the county council website, with useful updates and reports too.
