Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - 2.1
OBJECT Mr A.P. Smart
In my opinion, this plan is not truly strategic. Long term strategy has been replaced buy a large number of ad-hoc schemes which the planners hope may go some way to meeting the end objectives. In doing this, there has been insufficient consideration given to important matters such as transport and maintaining the separate identities of settlements. These matters have to addressed first, to meet the existing problems. Just because it is physically possible to build houses at a location does not mean that it should happen. The linage between building more houses and an improvement for the people of Aylesbury Vale is not clearly made. It is too aspirational.
SUPPORT Lands Improvement Holdings (LIH) represented by Savills Oxford (Reece Lemon)
LIH supports the overall vision and objectives for the District as set out in the VALP. In particular LIH supports
the Council's overall vision which is "to secure the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of the people
and businesses in the area".
OBJECT Hampden Fields Action Group (Dr Glynn White)
The plan will lead to economic stagnation and social change as a result of a flawed Transport Strategy. The claimed jobs growth with development will not materialise and thus it will leave Aylesbury increasingly becoming a dormitory town. The proposed Garden Town which seems to include 16,000 houses to the South of Aylesbury is misguided and consideration should be given to taking advantage of the Oxford Cambridge Expressway for a well designed New Town.
