Original text

The strategy also allocates growth at a site adjacent to Milton Keynes which reflects its status as a strategic settlement immediately adjacent to Aylesbury Vale District.

  2.  Buckingham will accommodate growth of 2,166 new homes.
  3.  Haddenham will accommodate growth of 1,032 new homes.
  4.  Winslow will accommodate growth of 897 new homes, linked with the development of East-West Rail and the new railway station in Winslow.
  5.  Wendover will accommodate around 1,132 new homes with 1,000 new homes at Halton Camp which is now confirmed to be closing in 2022 recognising the sustainability of Wendover and the railway station.
  6.  Land in the north east of Aylesbury Vale will make provision for 3,362 homes on a number of sites.

61, 3.83 and Table 7 Housing delivery in the plan period

Original text

Annualising the overall housing requirement results in a yearly need to build 1,430 homes. However there have already been six years of the Plan period with the majority of another one likely to have passed before the Plan is adopted. The delivery in these years, whilst significantly higher than delivery rates previously, has cumulatively fallen short of this target:

Update table 7 Housing delivery in the plan period

Proposed further changes

Annualising the overall housing requirement results in a yearly need to build 1,430 homes. However there have already been six seven years of the Plan period with the majority of another one likely to have passed before the Plan is adopted. The delivery in these years, whilst significantly higher than delivery rates previously, has cumulatively fallen short of this target: The delivery of housing up until 2018, whilst significantly higher than previous rates, cumulatively fell short of the annual need. However, the two most recent years of housing delivery greatly exceeded the requirement and the overall shortfall has decreased.

63, 3.88

Original text

The average number of homes delivered on windfall sites over the last 10 years (1 April 2007 – 31 March 2017) is 74 per annum. The windfall allowance is not applied to the next three years as sites under five dwellings are coming forward in this time period are likely to already have planning permission and therefore are counted as commitments. This gives a total windfall allowance of 962 dwellings for the last 13 years of the Plan period, 2020-2033.

Proposed further changes

The average number of homes delivered on windfall sites over the last 10 years (1 April 20072010 – 31 March 20172020) is 7476 per annum. The windfall allowance is not applied to the next three years as sites under five dwellings are coming forward in this time period are likely to already have planning permission and therefore are counted as commitments. This gives a total windfall allowance of 962760 dwellings for the last 1310 years of the Plan period, 2020-20332023-2033.
