VALP Proposed Submission

4.131

Representation ID: 617

Received: 11/12/2017

Respondent: Halton Parish Council

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

For clarity, the wording specific to Halton should be amended to the wording shown at Annex B.
Provide a narrative to show how the 1,000 homes allocated to Halton can be accommodated in a sustainable way, recognising the current lack of local infrastructure and the environmental constraints of the surrounding AONB and Green Belt land.
All references to Halton should be changed to read "Halton", rather than "Halton near Wendover", "Wendover/Halton", "RAF Halton", or "Halton Camp" to make the text correct and unambiguous.

Full text:

Halton Parish Council (HPC) supports AVDC's desire to provide housing on the current RAF
base sited within Halton within the existing building footprint on the site. This is providing that
sufficient employment, leisure, retail and infrastructure are included as part of any housing
development. Whilst HPC acknowledges that the Defense Infrastructure Organisation (DIO)
wants to sell the land for the highest price, HPC is keen to ensure that protected land, including
land with green belt status, is preserved for future generations during the opportunity to build on
to-be-vacated Ministry of Defense (MoD) land. Whilst the HPC has not been engaged in the
development of the VALP, we welcome the opportunity to add local knowledge to ensure that
development of the MoD land is of sufficient quality commensurate with the local area.
Issues
 Some of the VALP wording suggests that the 1,000 houses will be sited in Wendover,
not Halton.
 Halton will need to lose its classification as a "smaller village".
 Halton is not part of a strategic settlement.
 The VALP is unclear that the dwellings proposed for the RAF Halton site are within
Halton.
 HPC looks forward to early involvement in producing the Masterplan / SPD specific to
land in the parish of Halton.
 Information and Infrastructure
 Green Belt and Other Protected Land.
 Mixed Use
 VALP Policy map.
 Infrastructure
 Transport.
 Remove Uncertainty.

Table 1 Spatial strategy for growth in Aylesbury Vale

Representation ID: 1865

Respondent: Halton Parish Council

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

In both Tables 1 and 2 of S2 Spatial strategy for growth, the single line entry combining Wendover with Halton (Halton Camp) should be separated into distinct rows and Halton should have a distinct entry in the tables with the correct demarcation (a "smaller village") and its housing allocation (1,000 houses). In Table 2 the entry for Halton needs to have a description in column 2 highlighting why it has been selected for the 1,000 houses and how that fits within the settlement hierarchy.
