VALP Proposed Submission

Representation ID: 1188

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Newton Longville Parish Council

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? No

Representation:

Housing need should be met closest to where it arises. The choice of a single Housing Market Area (HMA) for the whole of the areas covered by Aylesbury Vale, Chiltern, South Bucks and Wycombe districts is inappropriate, too simplistic and fails to follow the guidance in the Planning Practice Guidance. A single HMA based on and around the Aylesbury and Wycombe 2011 Travel to Work area would appear to be a far more robust base for the HMA, to include all of Wycombe District and only a small southern part of Aylesbury Vale.

Representation by Newton Longville Parish Council - 14th December 2017
Newton Longville Parish Council representation - AVDC VALP submission draft Page 1 of 42
1. Introduction
1.1. This submission endorses the submission made by North Bucks Parishes
Planning Consortium (NBPPC) which should be read in conjunction with this
submission.
1.2. Newton Longville Parish Council consider that the draft plan is capable of
being found legally compliant and sound, subject to modifications being
made to the plan to deal with the issues highlighted below. Whilst issues are
identified on compliance with the Duty to Cooperate, it is hoped that it is a
lack submission of evidence rather than a failure to comply. These issues
had been pointed out to AVDC prior to publication of the draft submission
plan.
1.3. Newton Longville Parish Council requests participation at the Examination in
Public in relation to the points raised in this representation as well as those
made and in the submission by NBPPC. The parish council wishes to take
part in discussions on the plan and on modifications that may be required.
