VALP Proposed Submission

S2 Spatial Strategy for Growth

Representation ID: 1070

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Central Bedfordshire Council

Representation Summary:

Central Bedfordshire Council agrees with the extent of the HMA, methodology and conclusions of the HEDNA. We commend the Councils aspirations to deliver 27,400 homes, including the provision of 8,000 to meet unmet needs from Wycombe, Chiltern and South Bucks. CBC supports the spatial distribution of growth.

It is surprising that work undertaken in respect to the Luton HMA growth options study is not reference, as a minimum to confirm the conclusion that Aylesbury does not at the current time need to meet any unmet needs arising within the Luton HMA.

In relation to employment, we note that there is a current over supply within Aylesbury of over 100 ha, we would advise that given the likely growth pressures, it may be prudent to seek to ensure good quality employment land is retained.

S9 Monitoring and review

Representation ID: 1904

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Central Bedfordshire Council

Representation Summary:

CBC further supports the identification of the need for an early review of the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan to consider the potential for new housing at RAF Halton once it closes as well as the potential for a new settlement to help meet future growth requirements. This would need to be considered within the contest of the Cambridge­ Milton Keynes-Oxford Corridor and the government aspirations for significant growth to meet housing demand.
