Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - 1.58
OBJECT Historic England (Mr Martin Small)
The terms "built environment" and "historic environment" are not interchangeable; not all heritage assets are built and the National Planning Policy Framework refers to the historic environment (distinguishing it from the built environment in paragraph 7) and even includes a specific definition of the historic environment.
We welcome the reference to the 124 conservation areas, but wonder why there is no reference to the 2,896 listing entries, 67 scheduled monuments and 10 registered historic parks and gardens in the district
SUPPORT Mr Nick Moody
The historic character of these villages is linked to the local landscape. It is important that this is recognised and its retention protected. Its potential also for leisure activity and access by the local community should be given greater emphasis.
OBJECT National Trust - Waddesdon Estate/Hartwell House (Mr Simon Milliken)
Both Hartwell House (Grade 1) and Eythrope House (Grade 2) (both with Registered Parks and Gardens) are also important historic houses located a short distance from the western edge of Aylesbury Town in a highly vulnerable location in terms of future development pressures (HS2; housing development for 1,550 dwellings on Aylesbury Towns south-west fringe (D-AGT2); and possible Oxford-Cambridge Expressway proposals). For this reason, the early acknowledgement in the Plan text (Para 1.58) is needed to flag up the existence of these important historic, cultural and parkland assets which should be afforded the maximum protection as part of the emergent plan.
