Neighbourhood Plan Newsletter – May 2019


A draft copy of the neighbourhood plan was sent to Aylesbury Vale District Council in April.
Following a meeting with the planning officer clarification of the future process leading up to the referendum was understood.
Some minor alterations have now been made to the plan and it is anticipated the pre submission edition will go to the district council around the time of writing.
The parish council then enters into a six week consultation period with a number of organisations provided by the district council.
It will also be available for public consultation.
The views expressed resulting from the consultation will be considered and amendments made as agreed.
The parish council then formally submit the final plan to the district council who will appoint an independent examiner to review the plan.
Once this has been completed preparations are made by the district council for a parish referendum to either adopt or reject the plan.


Some of the key points in the plan are:

  • 12 sites are proposed for development consisting of a total of 139 new homes > A settlement boundary has been identified around the paris
  • Open green spaces have been identified and protected
  • Conservation and heritage aspects of the parish have been protected
  • Community assets to be retained have been identified
