Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - 3.15

Representation ID: 2712

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Roger & Reidunn Green

Summary:

Given uncertainty of future developments (eg E/W rail) this proposal should be redesigned and consideration given to planning a completely new town, and not try to solve problems with a short term 'fudge'.
The proposed plan does not adequately address the inevitable increase in volume of traffic not prevent coalescence of communities. It is poorly prepared and completely ineffective.

Representation ID: 2687

OBJECT Amarillo Ltd & Scandale Ltd represented by Planning Prospects (Mr Chris Dodds)

Summary:

A New Settlement forms the best, most sustainable, and least contentious approach to deliver significantly more homes in the District over the Plan period. The Council acknowledges that a New Settlement will be needed and will form part of an early Review of the VALP but the New Settlement site should be allocated now to ensure delivery through that early Review and during the Plan period.

We consider land to the north of Winslow Allocation WIN001, known as the Greenway Project, represents the preferred option for a New Settlement in Aylesbury Vale and should be allocated in the VALP now.

As currently drafted the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan will not deliver the homes required in the District and has not considered fully all of the reasonable alternative options available to the District.

Representation ID: 2650

OBJECT FCC Environment represented by Sirius Yorkshire (Joanna Berlyn)

Summary:

The OAN currently underestimates the likely development requirements over the Plan period, therefore significant additional land allocations should be provided. Paragraph 3.15 of the Plan must reference more explicitly the Government's and the NIC's overarching vision for the CMKO Corridor. Concerns raised about the timing of identifying a new settlement after the Expressway route has been selected. The potential/ proposed settlement location should be used to influence the route of the Expressway and to ensure supporting infrastructure is integrated e.g East West Rail.

Representation ID: 2515

OBJECT Mr & Mrs John & Christine Raines

Summary:

A new town may be the way forward as it should be self sufficient - most importantly schools particularly secondary education which are not coping now but there will
still be the traffic problem.

Representation ID: 2474

OBJECT Mr Damian Campbell

Summary:

The recent award of "Garden town" status is not reflected in the presentations. AVDC is still thinking piecemeal rather than demonstrating strategies for a new town from the outset. As a result, VALP is not justifiable as a long term strategy.

Representation ID: 2463

OBJECT Mr David Locke

Summary:

AVDC should be forward looking and should be working with national government to leverage the
huge opportunities presented by infrastructure provision envisaged by the National Infrastructure
Commission regarding East West Rail (EWR) and the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway.
The western end of EWR is due for delivery within the draft VALP horizon. It does not appear to
have been considered adequately in the draft VALP.

Representation ID: 2352

OBJECT Mr Andrew Smith

Summary:

I believe that this draft requires a radical review to recognise that the more effective strategy is to focus on what is required to make the most of this opportunity. Significant road improvements linking the Vale with the expressway and a new town for example, switching the focus to the north rather than cramming more into the south of the Vale.

Representation ID: 2253

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Chris & Shirley Bull

Summary:

AVDC should think long term and strategically by including a new town from the outset based on its preferred route for the east-west expressway between Oxford and Cambridge.

More details about Rep ID: 2253

Representation ID: 2237

OBJECT Mrs Jane Chilman

Summary:

T does not take into account the possible location of a New Town along the proposed East West Expressway which is a committed scheme and the planned route takes it through the North of Aylesbury Vale. The National Infrastructure Commission has called for billions of pounds of infrastructure investment relating to East-West Rail and the Oxford-Cambridge Expressway. A ground breaking new deal between Whitehall and local leaders could also lead to the first new towns in the UK for half a century. AVDC should think long term and include a new town in the VALP from the outset.

Representation ID: 2190

OBJECT Ether Solutions (Mr David Martin)

Summary:

Opportunities from the forthcoming East-West rail and Oxford-Cambridge express road are being missed. Aylesbury needs to be part of the integrated plan not trying to work on its own.

Representation ID: 2165

OBJECT Michelle Hughes

Summary:

AVDC should think long term and strategically and include a new town from the outset. The current Plan is not Justified as the most appropriate strategy.

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Peter & Jane Chilman

Summary:

not the most appropriate strategy and cannot be justified. The VALP does not take into account the possible location of a New Town along the proposed East West Expressway which is a committed scheme and the planned route. The National Infrastructure Commission has called for billions of pounds of infrastructure investment relating to East-West Rail and the Oxford-Cambridge Expressway.

OBJECT Persimmon Homes Ltd., and CALA homes Ltd represented by Turley Associates (Mr Christopher Roberts)

Summary:

It is apparent from the analysis set out at Sections 4 and 5 of this representation that the
Proposed Submission Local Plan needs to be revisited, such that it allocates additional
land which can be delivered in the short-medium term. This is in order to address the
pressing housing need which has arisen in the district and HMA. However, we do not
agree that it is appropriate to entirely delay (until a future Local Plan Review) planning
for a new settlement (at an appropriate location) to meet this additional growth.

Representation ID: 1716

OBJECT Wates Developments Ltd. represented by Boyer Planning Ltd (Jonathan Liberman)

Summary:

It is positive that the Council recognises at para 3.15 that the Local Plan will need to be reviewed, however the Plan currently provides no firm commitment to the review or any indication as to when it will take place. There are a number of issues that strongly suggest an early review is needed.

Representation ID: 1657

OBJECT Mr William Spear

Summary:

A new town requires a long term vision and strategy and the current plan does not meet this requirement.

More details about Rep ID: 1657

Representation ID: 1654

OBJECT Mrs Ann Webbley

Summary:

This is an essential part of the need for a positive place to live. AVDC decided against a new settlement, opting instead to try to add to existing settlements. This decision is not justified considering both the number of existing plans (outside the VALP, already under discussion) and the scale of the required level of building. This also means that this part of the plan is not effective, as sites not considered for development are now part of developers' proposals. The VALP should reconsider a new settlement in the north of the district.

Representation ID: 1626

OBJECT W K Boxhall

Summary:

This would be a much better approach as building a completely new town would ensure all the infrastructure issues would be catered for.

Representation ID: 1585

OBJECT Waldridge Garden Village Consortium represented by Pegasus Group (on behalf of Jeremy Elgin) (Mr Neil Tiley)

Summary:

The VALP is dependent upon the delivery of at least one new settlement to meet a robust assessment of the OAN currently and to address the as yet unknown additional needs which will arise from the standardised methodology, the unmet needs of the region and other economic drivers.
Waldridge Garden Village provides the most sustainable option for such a new settlement.
In order to secure the delivery of this and any other new settlement and to enable these to deliver on time, there should be a commitment to these including the identification of broad locations.

Representation ID: 1575

OBJECT Wendover Parish Council (Jane Ellis)

Summary:

We expect a new settlement to form part of that Local Plan review. Halton could be the new settlement that is referred to - separate from Wendover with its own infrastructure provision.

Representation ID: 1558

OBJECT Barbara White

Summary:

AVDC decided against a new settlement, opting instead to try to add to existing settlements, expansion to the South of Aylesbury. This decision is not justified considering both the number of existing plans already approved by the SDMC or that are currently under discussion. This also means that this part of the plan is not effective, as sites not considered for development are now part of developers' proposals.

Representation ID: 1406

OBJECT Mr Steven Hyams

Summary:

3.15 New settlement

This is too short term and does not consider the potential of creating a new town from the outset. It is not the best strategy and therefore not Justified.

More details about Rep ID: 1406

Representation ID: 1379

OBJECT Mr Keith Waterman

Summary:

AVDC should be thinking much longer term and more strategically and should include a full details for a new town from the outset. The current Plan is not Justified as the most appropriate strategy.

More details about Rep ID: 1379

Representation ID: 1335

OBJECT High Barrow Holdings (Mr. Ikram Haq) represented by Ingleton Wood LLP (Rebecca Howard)

Summary:

Para 3.15 of the VALP states that there will be an early review of the Plan to take into account or emerging issues including the Government's revised methodology for calculating housing need. The recognition that the plan will require early review suggests that it has been submitted prematurely and does not take into account up to-date and relevant evidence about the economic, social and environmental characteristics and prospects of the area, as required by Para 158 of the NPPF.

AVDC should think long term and strategically and include a new town from the outset. The current Plan is not Justified as the most appropriate strategy.

Summary:

Object, 3.15

3.15 New settlement:
AVDC have an opportunity to create a new town instead of the current proposals, this could be served by a new infrastructure. Something the people of Aylesbury my actually thank the council for.

Representation ID: 1208

OBJECT Mr A.P. Smart

Summary:

Why has this been dropped. Surely this is a better way to proceed. This indicates a serious lack of long-term strategy. This should be reviewed and re-opened.

Representation ID: 1064

OBJECT mR. Cameron Sinclair

Summary:

The current plan seems not to take into account political and public support for development along the Oxford/Cambridge corridor. It is my view that all new settlement proposals need to be addressed in the context of this potentially significant infrastructure project, particularly where new road and rail links need to be coherently planned.

Representation ID: 1023

SUPPORT South Oxfordshire District Council (Mr. Ryan Hunt)

Summary:

On page 33 of the VALP it states 'we fully anticipate the need to carry out an early review of VALP to
take into account newly emerging issues such as the Government's changed methodology on
calculating housing need, as well as the impacts of major strategic schemes'. As such SODC would like
to maintain an ongoing dialogue and be updated following any review of the housing need for AVDC
and any unmet need resulting from the wider Central Buckinghamshire HMA.

Representation ID: 750

OBJECT Mr R Horton

Summary:

This plan does not consider the feelings of current inhabitants, we like Aylesbury because its a Market Town small friendly and homely. What you are trying to achieve is another Milton Keynes without the infrastructure. We have single track roads, a small town centre and many local communities which what to stay independent.

More details about Rep ID: 750

Representation ID: 676

SUPPORT Whaddon Parish Council (Ms Suzanne Lindsey)

Summary:

3.15 WPC support 'a new settlement' as part of an early review of this plan, but it's location - or their locations (should two new settlements be required) - must be driven by the final, and built routing of the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway, as this will ultimately provide the best sustainable location solution. The other important 'driver' for the location of any new settlement must be the timing and opening of east-west rail, which will clearly pre-date and be operative way before the Expressway.

More details about Rep ID: 676

Representation ID: 606

OBJECT Mr Trevor Toms

Summary:

The reduction in housing figures still leaves a requirement for more houses than exist in many larger villages/small towns within the Vale.
Suggesting, therefore, that new settlement is inappropriate is in itself inappropriate.

More details about Rep ID: 606

Representation ID: 425

OBJECT Hampden Fields Action Group (Dr Glynn White)

Summary:

The VALP does not take into account the possible location of a New Town along the proposed Oxford Cambridge Expressway. The Expressway is a committed scheme and the planned route(s) takes it through the Vale of Aylesbury.

Summary:

A new town, based on the proposed East-West link, should be included in the Plan from the outset.

OBJECT The University of Buckingham represented by Delta Planning (Maria Sheridan)

Summary:

Objection is raised to the identification that an early review of the Plan will be undertaken to take account of newly emerging issues such as the Government's changed methodology on calculating housing need. This is not an appropriate approach to take. The current Plan should take account of the changed methodology at this stage, as it clear that examination of the Plan will take place after the new methodology comes into use.

OBJECT Crevichon Properties Ltd represented by Delta Planning (Maria Sheridan)

Summary:

Objection is raised to the identification that an early review of the Plan will be undertaken to take account of newly emerging issues such as the Government's changed methodology on calculating housing need amongst other issues. This is not an appropriate approach to take. The current Plan should take account of the changed methodology at this stage, as it is clear that examination of the Plan will take place after the new methodology comes into use.
