VALP Proposed Submission

D-HAD007 Land north of Rosemary Lane

Representation ID: 550

Received: 11/12/2017

Respondent: Haddenham Village Society

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

The 'Site Criteria' for HAD007 para h on page 124 requires 'further provision of pedestrian and cycle linkages through the site and into the village including along Churchway, to the train station and with connections with the adjoining approved airfield development if appropriate and possible'. If these connections cannot be provided, the selection of this site is unsound. Many of the residents on this site are likely to use the train station for commuting to work and, without the link, they would need to use cars for access to the station, aggravating existing parking problems near the station.

5.5

Representation ID: 555

Received: 11/12/2017

Respondent: Haddenham Village Society

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Based on the figures in para 1.48 above, the percentage of affordable housing over recent years has averaged of 31%. However, the total number of households on the Bucks Home Choice Housing Register (paragraph 1.47) waiting for a social housing tenancy in April 2016 was over 3,000. Clearly, the average of 31% is failing to meet current needs. South Oxfordshire and Wycombe both allocate 40% of housing in developments of over 10 dwellings to affordable housing in their draft Local Plan. The need in AVDC must be comparable, therefore, a target 40% should be adopted.

H2 Rural exception sites

Representation ID: 719

Received: 13/12/2017

Respondent: Haddenham Village Society

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Paragraph 5.8 makes provision for affordable homes to be integrated throughout a development site, yet no provision is made to integrate affordable homes throughout the District. Indeed, Policy D3 states that proposed development in small villages should be of 5 dwellings or less. As paragraph 5.5 (and policy H1) states that the majority of affordable housing is to be delivered from Section 106 money, i.e. on sites of 11 or more dwellings, it would seem that, according to the VALP, no affordable housing is to be built in the smaller villages.

D1 Delivering Aylesbury Garden Town

Representation ID: 721

Received: 13/12/2017

Respondent: Haddenham Village Society

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Section 7.1 on page 201 states 'an important policy tool to achieve this [sustainable transport] is a people orientated transport hierarchy'. The section on 'Aylesbury as a Garden Town', Policy D1 paragraph f on page 70 states that 'New development should be planned around a user hierarchy that places pedestrians and cyclists at the top.' This principle should be applied not just to Aylesbury but also to the Strategic Settlements, and to the Larger, Medium and Smaller Villages.

T1 Delivering the sustainable transport vision

Received: 13/12/2017

Respondent: Haddenham Village Society

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Policy T1, 'Delivering the Sustainable Transport Vision' should be re-written to include this principle, rather than the ambiguous 'with particular emphasis on encouraging modal shift with greater use of more sustainable forms of transport ...'. Policy T1 should be further changed to include the Council's assistance in delivering this principle in all developments, not just Aylesbury and to a limited extent, Buckingham.
