Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - D-AGT1 South Aylesbury

Representation ID: 2662

OBJECT Mr Peter Hoare

Summary:

D-AGTI does not provide effective solutions or is totally inadequate for the development proposals.

Representation ID: 2592

OBJECT Natural England (Ms Kirsty Macpherson)

Summary:

Section of these sites contain BMV
land. In order to preserve as much
BMV land as possible and use
areas of poorer quality agricultural
land these areas should the focus of
strategic GI.

OBJECT Natural England (Ms Kirsty Macpherson)

Summary:

By including the words "where
practicable" you allow for the
possibly of destruction of priority
habitats and the loss of biodiversity.
For the woodlands and hedgerows
there is already the word "should"
instead of "will" which lessens the
strength of the policy and allows
arguments against retaining habitat
features.

OBJECT Mr & Mrs John & Christine Raines

Summary:

The positioning of 1,000+ houses between Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall doesn't bear thinking about. Transport alone is comprised already
and certainly I can't be the only person who would put themselves in a position of moving to this area and not being able to commute.

Representation ID: 2506

OBJECT Unknown (Mr Peter Bantham)

Summary:

This creates coalescence between Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall; this is not a reasonable strategy.
Placing 1000+ houses, schools etc. along the south east link road will give a severe impact on the gyratory and surrounding roads.

More details about Rep ID: 2506

Representation ID: 2481

OBJECT Mr Damian Campbell

Summary:

1) another case of coalescence between Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall. As a result, it contradicts even the vague wish to "Seek to preserve" the villages (see 3.22). The plan cannot therfore be justified as an appropriate strategy
2) As upheld by the secretary of state in the last appeal against Hampden Fields, placing 1,000+ houses, schools and other development along the South East Aylesbury Link Road would wreak havoc on the the gyratory system and the surrounding road network. This means that this part of the VALP it is not effective in terms of sound infrastructure planning.

Representation ID: 2465

OBJECT Mr David Locke

Summary:

In the draft VALP, the SEALR isn't shown, but the area is shown covered in more houses. The traffic
from the houses has to be catered for. How is this traffic supposed to access the SEALR? There are
no junctions shown in the SEALR plans that I can see.
This is yet another example of the left hand not knowing (or caring) what the right hand is doing. It
is incredibly poor infrastructure planning. Again, what traffic modelling has been done to assess the
effect of 2,000 houses on what is supposed to be a strategic link route?

Representation ID: 2356

OBJECT Mr Andrew Smith

Summary:

The building of so many houses together with the allied infrastructure of schools etc will severely impact the already stressed road network, not only the gyratory but also the neighbouring roads. Results in the de facto merging of Aylesbury, Hampden Hall and Stoke Mandeville.

Representation ID: 2259

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Chris & Shirley Bull

Summary:

Placing 1,000+ houses, schools and other development along the South East Aylesbury Link Road will severely overload the gyratory system and the surrounding road network. This is not sound infrastructure planning.

More details about Rep ID: 2259

Representation ID: 2244

OBJECT Mrs Jane Chilman

Summary:

The traffic modelling that has been produced to justify the new road in this location is not fit for
purpose. The construction of 2,000 houses with schools and other development along this road will
cause a severe impact on the gyratory system and the surrounding road network. This will also
create coalescence between Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall Weston Turville.

More details about Rep ID: 2244

Representation ID: 2233

OBJECT Melvyn Gibbons

Summary:

This part of the plan creates coalescence between Aylesbury and Stoke Mandeville and placing a further 1000 homes on the proposed South East Aylesbury Link Road area would add more traffic on to the roads in the area and particularly the gyratory system and cannot be effective.

Representation ID: 2170

OBJECT Michelle Hughes

Summary:

1) This creates coalescence between Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall. Not Justified as the most appropriate strategy, therefore. 2) Placing 1,000+ houses, schools and other development along the South East Aylesbury Link Road creates a severe impact on the gyratory system and the surrounding road network. This means that it is not Effective in terms of sound infrastructure planning.

Representation ID: 2099

OBJECT Historic England (Mr Martin Small)

Summary:

the Master Plan for the site should be informed by the Buckinghamshire Historic Landscape Character Assessment and Historic Environment Record, with the synthesis of any existing archaeological investigations and further archaeological investigation if necessary, with the conservation of historic landscape features and archaeological remains a site-specific requirement.

More details about Rep ID: 2099

Representation ID: 1928

OBJECT mR. Cameron Sinclair

Summary:

Building more than 1,000 houses along the Aylesbury Road will choke traffic flow in both directions, particularly with additional traffic from theRAF Halton site.

Representation ID: 1878

OBJECT Unknown (Mr Paul Pelling)

Summary:

Again, as mentioned in 3.22, the issue of coalescence between Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall is contrary to not developing on open countryside between developments.

More details about Rep ID: 1878

Representation ID: 1862

OBJECT Ms Maureen Simmons

Summary:

This part of the Plan will coalesce Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall - which is the opposite of what this Plan should be achieving - i.e. contrary to para 3.22 and is not sustainable development. Also planning for 1,000 plus houses, together with other development along the South-East Aylesbury Link Road will seriously impact the gyratory system and the neighbouring road network. This is not effective planning in terms of the infrastructure in the area.

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Peter & Jane Chilman

Summary:

The traffic modelling that has been produced to justify the new road in this location is not fit for purpose. The construction of 2,000 houses with schools and other development along this road will cause a severe impact on the gyratory system and the surrounding road network. This will also create coalescence between Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall Weston Turville.

OBJECT Ainscough Strategic Land represented by Turley Associates (Taylor Cherrett)

Summary:

We are not aware that the site has been the subject of comprehensive all-encompassing
planning application, and appropriately the trajectory set out within the VALP Housing
Land Supply Soundness Document indicates that the sites will not start delivering until
2045/25.

More details about Rep ID: 1763

Representation ID: 1736

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

Summary:

indicates that such land has
not been formally promoted for development. This raises questions as to the availability
and therefore deliverability of at least a section of the allocation. Further to this, it is
evident that this allocation is comprised of a significant number of land interests,
necessitating the creation of a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the
allocation Whilst the production of an SPD is
not an unreasonable approach (when seeking a coherent scheme across a large site),
securing the support of a myriad of developers and landowners will invariably prove
time-consuming

Representation ID: 1662

OBJECT Mr William Spear

Summary:

The plan demonstrates poor infrastructure development as it will merge Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall and as such is not an appropriate or acceptable strategy. In addition, the planned housing will generate at least 2,000+ extra vehicles which will regularly gridlock the gyratory system and the surrounding roads. This again will lead to the creation of unsafe 'rat-runs' through residential areas.

Representation ID: 1648

OBJECT Mrs Ann Webbley

Summary:

D-AGT1, D-AGT3, D-AGT4, and 4.125 I feel that similar worries are raised by the plans for housing at Woodlands, Hampden Fields, and eventually, Halton. Without considering the impact of so many developments with so many houses in a small part of the district together with their impact on future traffic flows, it is impossible to view the plan as effective.

OBJECT W K Boxhall

Summary:

All will result in significant strains to the local transport system and in particular the A41, A413 and the Gyratory system.

More details about Rep ID: 1632

Representation ID: 1545

OBJECT Mr Richard Wise

Summary:

D-AGT1 South Aylesbury
This creates coalescence between Aylesbury and surrounding villages and the traffic produced from an extra (minimum) of 1000 houses will cause unimaginable congestion to these villages.
This is not an effective infrastructure plan.

Representation ID: 1448

OBJECT Thames Water (Sir/ Madam )

Summary:

The water network , wastewater capacity in this area is unlikely to be able to support the demand anticipated from this development. The developer is encouraged to work with Thames Water early on in the planning process to understand what water infrastructure is required, where , when and how it will be delivered.

Summary:

D-AGTl South Aylesbury
1) This creates coalescence between Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall. Not Justified as the most appropriate strategy, therefore.
2) Placing 1,000+ houses, schools and other development along the South East Aylesbury Link Road creates a severe impact on the gyratory system and the surrounding road network. This means that it is not Effective in terms of sound infrastructure planning.

OBJECT Mr Steven Hyams

Summary:

D-AGTl South Aylesbury

Traffic and infrastructure nightmare, with no guarantee of funding and implementation at the appropriate time.

More details about Rep ID: 1413

Representation ID: 1405

OBJECT Mrs Claudia Belardo

Summary:

These plans overrule the statement Aston Clinton and Stoke Mandeville will not get any allocations because of their proximity to MDAs. They strip all remaining green space in Stoke Mandeville. It includes land previously deemed unsuitable - SM006, SM00, SM008 and SM010. This land floods. In the Garden Town concept plan this area was a green zone. It will result in coalescence between Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall, obliterating the character and identity of Stoke Mandeville whilst at the same time eradicating the open countryside between settlements.

More details about Rep ID: 1405

Representation ID: 1394

OBJECT Mr Andrew Burnett

Summary:

I agree with this, but the planned developments at Hampden Fields and Stoke Mandeville are contrary to the policy and would result in the disappearance of open countryside between Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville, Weston Turville and Aston Clinton. It is essential that these communities remain separate and do not end up as part of an expanded Aylesbury. It is also essential that the existing clear separation between Wendover, Weston Turville and Halton continues, and that no green belt land is released for housing, now or in the future.

OBJECT Mr Keith Waterman

Summary:

This creates coalescence between Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall. Therefore Not Justified as the most appropriate strategy. Placing 1,000+ houses, schools and other development along the South East Aylesbury Link Road creates a severe impact on the gyratory system and the surrounding road network. This means that it is not Effective in terms of sound infrastructure planning. The proposed Stoke Mandeville bypass as part of HS2 will do nothing to alleviate congestion problems except in the immediate area near the church and school. This new development will quickly negate any benefits gained therefrom.

Representation ID: 1366

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Liam & Catherine Hyland

Summary:

This will lead to coalescence between Aylesbury,Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall. The plan to build over 1,000 houses along the South East Aylesbury Link Road will place great pressure on the gyratory system and the surrounding road network. We do not consider this to be an effective approach.

OBJECT Mr Andy May

Summary:

Coalescence: The plan refers to 'Preserving the character' of the existing villages. As a resident of Weston Turville I'm interested in preserving the rural village lifestyle we enjoy in our village. We have a strong village community based around the identity we have as Weston Turville. The AVLP will destroy this village by joining it to bed grove, Stoke Mandeville and Hamden Hall if the Hamden Fields housing development goes ahead. The plan should deliver on the aim of 'preserving the character' of local villages rather than destroying village communities and creating traffic gridlock in the process.

OBJECT Lands Improvement Holdings Plc represented by Indigo Planning Limited (Mr Michael Wood)

Summary:

unsound as currently drafted.
The density of the allocation is far too low and as such, the allocation fails to deliver an appropriate level of housing to optimise the output of AGT1 in the context of the Garden Town principles, site specific constraints and in accordance with the NPPF.

Further, in general, the policy wording is unclear, imprecise and replicates several other policies in the VALP. As drafted, it is convoluted and confusing and does not accord with the Planning Practice Guidance which confirms that all Local Plans "should be as focused, concise and accessible as possible".

OBJECT CALA Group Ltd and the William Hardy Charity represented by Arrow Planning Ltd (Mark Schmull)

Summary:

1. does not make best or most efficient use of available land;
2. not consistent with the evidence base
a. proposed allocation of 1,000 dwellings is significantly lower than the 1,686 dwelling
figure In the evidence base;
b. The AGT1 allocation phased to the end of the plan period due to infrastructure but delivered by 2020, does not justify phasing;
3. unnecessary and onerous requirement for an SPD for AGT1;
4. does not appropriately plan for Gypsy and Traveller provision
5. not focused or concise. Instead there are a number of duplicated and unnecessary inclusions in policies, including AGT1.

OBJECT Vanderbilt Strategic and Redrow Homes represented by Wessex Environmental Planning (Andrew Blackwell)

Summary:

AGT1 needlessly entangles some of the land between the Wendover Road and the railway line to the west which compromises an ability to deliver an early discrete phase of development.

Representation ID: 1019

OBJECT Mr Alan Brook

Summary:

if there is a need for more housing you cannot stop progress but there has to be a limit!


There now appears to be a move to significantly change this stance with high density housing to the detriment of Stoke Mandeville. Why?

I am aware that comments have been made about infrastructure, congestion, facilities and safety of the existing road networks. Well I wholly endorse these comments.

I would strongly expect that the needs and wishes of local residents can be taken into account to avoid coalescence and to maintain the integrity of Stoke Mandeville.

OBJECT Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Conservation Board (Dr Lucy Murfett)

Summary:

This is looking one way only, views to the Chilterns AONB from the site. More important are views from the Chilterns AONB towards Aylesbury. Very careful consideration needs to be exercised for expansion below the scarp slope of the Chilterns. The views out of the AONB from key e.g. from Coombe Hill and along the Ridgeway National Trail, are some of the most important views in the Chilterns, central to the public's recreational enjoyment of the AONB. These are nationally important places on a National Trail, which should be protected for current and future generations to enjoy.

Representation ID: 876

OBJECT Mr R Horton

Summary:

This will join Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Weston Turville (Hampden Hall) together creating the loss two communities, which was stated in 3.22 is something you would try to avoid! Your wording "will seek to avoid" The Link road joining the A413 will cause traffic congestion with 3 round about with in half a mile of each over. Extra vehicles on the A413 will impact on the Gyratory sytem. This is not good planning!

OBJECT Hampden Fields Action Group (Dr Glynn White)

Summary:

This creates coalescence between Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville and Hampden Hall. It clearly conflicts with strategic policies stated in this plan (actually rendering them useless). The traffic modelling so far produced to justify a new road in this location (EALR) is not fit for purpose. It is entirely possible, if not likely, that the placement of 1,000+ houses, schools and other development along this road creates a severe impact on the gyratory system and the surrounding road network.

More details about Rep ID: 432

Representation ID: 379

OBJECT Mr Chris Webbley

Summary:

There is a mismatch between this Plan and the strategic outline business case for the road mentioned (the SEALR). The 1,000 houses in VALP AGTl do not appear in the SEALR maps and publicity, even though they will inevitably generate significant volumes of traffic. For two such important documents to be out of step raises serious questions about the quality of the planning that is being done.
