Legally compliant? Not specified
Policy S3 (and the definition at footnote 7 and 8) states that regard should be had to any perceived further coalescence between settlements. It is important that a flexible approach is adopted towards these requirements, particularly where the VALP itself does not provide a longer-term vision for North East Aylesbury Vale.
Unsound policy restrictions on future development in relation to coalescence should therefore be avoided. References to 'further' and 'perceived' coalescence in Policy S3 and footnote 7/8 should therefore be omitted to enable consideration on a site-by-site basis, as demonstrated for the strategic opportunity at Park Manor.
