Aylesbury Vale Area


VALP Main Modifications

Representation ID: 3019

Received: 12/12/2019

Respondent: Arnold White Estates

Agent: Arrow Planning Ltd

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

It is not clear whether the South West Link Road is an optional extra or whether it is essential
infrastructure that must be available before the development of S-AGT2 South West
Aylesbury can commence. It is not clear whether the Link Road can be delivered as part of
the scheme, thus casting doubt on the site's contribution to housing needs (at least 1,590
dwellings). If the site allocation is proceed then there should be an amendment to the Policy
to ensure that the South West Link Road is available before development commences.

Change suggested by respondent:

AGT2 b. should therefore be worded 'No development shall take place on D-AGT2 until the South
West Link Road is available (the scheme will also enable its delivery), which will relieve traffic
pressures in the town centre and enabling easier vehicular movement around Aylesbury.'

On behalf of my client Arnold White Estates Ltd I attach our representations on the forms provided. I draw your attention to the difficulty I have found in making these submissions. The Schedule of Modifications does not show the relevant page numbers in the Plan as proposed to be modified, which means cross-referencing is very difficult. For example, in the Modifications Schedule MM027 shows a modification to para 4.7 at p62. The Modified Plan shows this as para 4.9 at p67. The Modification Schedule and the Modified Plan should have the same page and paragraph numbers. Also, for example, there are two Policies D2. In the forms I have sought to group linked Main Modifications on one form where a combined response is then provided. Where necessary I have inserted a blank page to accommodate text that would not fit within the box provided. I trust all of my text will be captured.
