VALP Proposed Submission

S2 Spatial Strategy for Growth

Representation ID: 1036

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: North Bucks Parishes Planning Consortium

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? No

Representation Summary:


* The need to rationally and objectively identify those existing communities and other areas of the Vale which are best suited to deliver major housing growth to 2033.
* The fact that with 30% of the housing growth during the Plan period accommodating unmet need for districts bordering the south of the Vale, there does not appear to be a recognition that logic demands these homes should be located reasonably close to those districts.
* The failure of the Sustainability Assessment (SA) to make a valid and justified comparative analysis of sustainability between the proposed strategic settlements.

VALP Proposed Submission

S2 Spatial Strategy for Growth

Representation ID: 2204

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: North Bucks Parishes Planning Consortium

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

Given that 30% pf the housing growth proposed in the submission VALP is a requirement of the need to meet neighbouring authorities' unmet need it is logical that this should be delivered in areas closest to where that need arises.. Of the strategic settlements Haddenham and Wendover are closest to the areas with unmet need whilst Winslow and Buckingham are farthest away.

S5 Infrastructure

Representation ID: 2205

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: North Bucks Parishes Planning Consortium

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

All of the strategic locations offer primary care services but with significantly varying levels of provision. Haddenham performs best with a relatively recently built facility. Motor car journey times from the north to the two major hospitals providing specialist care for Aylesbury Vale (Stoke Mandeville and Wycombe General) are double those from Haddenham.

VALP Proposed Submission

S8 Neighbourhood plans

Representation ID: 2206

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: North Bucks Parishes Planning Consortium

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

there are allocations of specific additional sites at Strategic Settlements with made Neighbourhood Plans, as opposed to a strategic number of homes to be delivered. This is contrary to -
* NPPF para 185 covering the key aim/promise of Neighbourhood Planning which enables communities to decide where new homes should be located,
* various Ministerial Statements along the same lines; and
* para 1.20 of the proposed Submission VALP which confirms that made Neighbourhood Plans can determine how development will take place in their area.
This aspect of the Plan is therefore not 'justified'

VALP Proposed Submission

H1 Affordable housing

Representation ID: 2207

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: North Bucks Parishes Planning Consortium

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

affordable housing to be delivered, detailed in Policy H1 compared with that previously shown in the draft VALP, does not appear rational when there is a recognised national shortage of such housing. Consortium understands that the Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust has evidence which indicates that the provision of 6,000 affordable homes in Aylesbury Vale over the 20 year plan period will be significantly less than required. Consistently the message has been the need to build more affordable homes, not less.

3.20

Representation ID: 2208

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: North Bucks Parishes Planning Consortium

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

flawed because the Plan gives no account of how VALP has robustly established "the capacity of each settlement to accommodate housing growth." It is important to bear in mind that the district-wide housing growth in VALP is 36% without the buffer and total growth of 40% across the district including the buffer.

VALP Proposed Submission

Table 2 Proposed settlement hierarchy and housing development

Representation ID: 2209

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: North Bucks Parishes Planning Consortium

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

The inconsistency of the Settlement Hierarchy and the housing delivery expected of individual settlements is also exemplified by VALP's demands of Maids Moreton detailed in Table 2. Maids Moreton is defined as a 'medium village,' it currently comprises roughly 370 homes yet VALP specifies it will have an allocation of 170 additional homes for delivery during the Plan period. This is a 46% growth in housing, proportionately greater than all the second tier larger villages including Aston Clinton!

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

There are 3 proposed routes across the Vale for the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway but a decision as to which will be the final agreed route is not expected for a further 18 months. Regardless of the option chosen it is clear that the government intends that this road will be delivered. It is surprising therefore VALP does not address the obvious issue of restricting development along these potential routes in the interim.

Respondent: North Bucks Parishes Planning Consortium

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

There is very little in the Plan to deliver this vision. In fact there are no strategic policies regarding education, so it is difficult to see how this will be delivered and thus goes to the soundness of the Plan.
