VALP Proposed Submission

Representation ID: 292

Respondent: CPRE Buckinghamshire

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

There is clearly a substantial need for new housing in Aylesbury Vale, particularly for affordable housing and this needs to be prioritised as well as ensuring new housing is accessible and meets the needs of both those with disabilities and an increasing number of elderly people.

We are not convinced that the level of need is as great as is being promoted, firstly because of the way trends have been projected forwards using UPC population adjustments and because the market uplift proposed for Aylesbury Vale does not seem to me justified. These comments are explained in the accompanying uploaded document.

Representation Summary:

The paragraph seems to have been misworded, but if it suggests, as it seems to, that there is a proposal to designate new AALs and LLAs, then that is welcomed.

In addition, we welcome the addition of lighting and tranqullity as criteria in NE5.

Respondent: CPRE Buckinghamshire

Representation Summary:

This usefully states that 'all the landscape in the district is considered to have innate value as referred to in the NPPF'. However, this should probably read intrinsic (which is what the NPPF says), rather than innate - but is welcomed, nevertheless.

We also welcome the continuing identification of AALs and LLAs and commend AVDC on carrying out a criteria-based assessment.

NE7 Local green space

Representation Summary:

The designation of Green Park in Aston Clinton as "retained for possible future development" should be changed to a Designated Green Space.

Full text:

We support the principles of the NPPF in protecting local green spaces from potential development. The NPPF says it should be designated "where the green space is in reasonably close proximity to the community it serves and where the green area is demonstrably special to a local community and holds a particular local significance, for example because of its beauty, historic significance, recreational value (including as a playing field), tranquillity or richness of its wildlife"
So Green Park in Aston Clinton should be a Designated Green Space, because it is an essential facility for recreation enjoyed by the community. However we understand that Bucks County Council have identified it as "retained for possible future development". Although this is being addressed at the Neighbourhood Plan level, it is also a fact that the Local Plan overrides Neighbourhood Plans where there is conflict, so we would strongly recommend that the Local Plan (and Bucks CC) formally identifies Green Park as a Designated Green Space.
