There is therefore vagueness about whether the essential infrastructure can be provided
for AGT1 S Aylesbury and when, which casts would cast doubt on the site's contribution
to housing needs. If the site is to be included in the Plan then provision of essential
infrastructure should be made a requirement in the Policy.

Change suggested by respondent:

D-AGT1 a. should be added to as follows: Provision of land for around at least 1,000 dwellings at a density
that takes account of the adjacent settlement character and identity, integrates new development with the
existing built area of Aylesbury and responds positively to the best characteristics of the surrounding area.
Should it become clear by 2025 that the pre-requisite HS2 infrastructure will not be available to serve the
remaining 875 dwellings of the allocation then the LPA will assume that this development will not be
delivered within the plan period and seek alternatives.
D-AGT1 c. should be worded 'No development shall commence until the dual carriageway
distributor road between B4443 Lower Road and A413 Wendover Road, to cross the railway
line, is available. No vehicular access to or from the South East Aylesbury Link Road (SEALR)
will be permitted to serve the development parcels.
MM033 para 4.35 should be worded: The 125 permitted dwellings are expected to be delivered between
2019 and 2022. The remainder of the site is expected to come forward in the later years of the plan between
2024 and 2033, as it is dependent on the delivery of infrastructure related to the development of HS2. The
Policy makes it clear that if by 2025 the pre-requisite HS2 infrastructure will not be available to serve the
remaining 875 dwellings of the allocation then the LPA will assume that this development will not be
delivered within the plan period and seek alternatives. The AGT1 Masterplan SPD will provide further
guidance and information on phasing expected time of delivery.

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.

Representation:

The Consortium objects to the imposition of a restriction on the delivery of housing development until after 2024. There is no good planning or sound reason for this.

MM033 is not accurate in stating that delivery over the remainder of the allocation is dependent on HS2 infrastructure. There is no evidence presented by AVDC to support this, there has been no material change in policy or circumstance and this has not been raised at any stage in the process before now.
The suggestion that the AGT-1 SPD would provide guidance on expected time of delivery, oversteps the remit of SPDs.
