Representation Summary:

Ensuring a positive approach to the preparation of Neighbourhood Plans is generally endorsed. Given that AVDC has undertaken limited additional work on the settlement hierarchy nor taken account of future infrastructure investment and increases to the capacity of services and facilities (e.g. East-West Rail) it is considered that Neighbourhood Plans in North East Aylesbury Vale should positively assess additional opportunities for growth, ahead of a review of the Local Plan. This would ensure that Neighbourhood Plans look to complement the broader objectives of the spatial strategy.

Change suggested by respondent:

Proposed additional criterion following supporting text at Paragraph 3.75
demonstrate that opportunities to support additional growth have been positively assessed where this would complement the strategic priorities and spatial strategy in the relevant part of the plan area
