VALP Main Modifications
Representation ID: 3030
Respondent: Mrs Dorothy Froggatt
Legally compliant? No
Shenley Park (SP) was not included in the 2017 proposed submission version of VALP, so Whaddon PC and residents have been completely denied the opportunity to properly debate and cross-examing AVDC's decision to chose SP over the two competing sites. It is unfair and unjust not to allow detailed comparison testing between the three competing sites.
Government requires that adjoining authorities have a duty to co-operates when considering significant strategic cross-boundary housing allocations. AVDC have paid lip service to this, but have not addressed this through effective discussion or joint working.
