VALP Main Modifications

Representation ID: 2929

Received: 11/12/2019

Respondent: Buckingham Town Council

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

Buckingham remains named as an area of focus for development. If there is concern as to viability of the sites due to BTS new modelling, then Buckingham needs to be withdrawn from the settlement designation to protect from speculative development brought forward on the basis of housing need [as stated in MM079 115/4.122] and subsequent transport modelling. This does not demonstrate internal consistency within the approach of VALP in light of the last minute removal of site BUC051.

Change suggested by respondent:

Either the policy needs to be amended to remove further housing until further transport modelling is undertaken, or site BUC051 should be reinstated.
