Representation Summary:

In the modified Plan, housing numbers for several large developments have
been raised.
D-AGT2 (south west of Stoke Mandeville) has been modified from "around 1,550" to "at
least 1,590".
I strongly disagree with increasing the housing density in this area. The roads are already over-congested. the continued loss of countryside to housing development
is destroying the rural character of the area, and the distinctness of communities close to Aylesbury is being lost.
Infrastructure is already inadequate to meet the needs of existing housing density and this plan will make it worse. (officer summary)

Housing numbers

In the modified Plan, housing numbers for several large developments have
been raised.
.D-AGT1 (Aylesbury Garden Town site 1, south of Stoke Mandeville) has
been modified to raise housing from "around 1,000" to "at least" 1,000.
.D-AGT2 (south west of Stoke Mandeville) from "around 1,550" to "at
least 1,590".
.D-AGT3 (includes Woodlands) from "around 1,660" to "at least 1,757"
.D-AGT4 (includes Hampden Fields) from "around 3111" to "at least
3358"
.D-HAL003 (includes RAF Halton site) from "around 1,000" to "at least
1,000"

I strongly disagree with increasing the housing density in this area. The
roads are already over-congested, and the plans do nothing which will solve
this. In addition, the continued loss of countryside to housing development
is destroying the rural character of the area, and the distinctness of
communities close to Aylesbury is being lost.

I do not agree that this plan, as modified, " seeks to meet objectively
assessed development and infrastructure requirements". Infrastructure is
already inadequate to meet the needs of existing housing density and this
plan will make it worse.

Andrew Burnett
