Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - D-MMO006 Land east of Walnut Drive and west of Foscote Road

Representation ID: 2707

OBJECT M.E Clements

Summary:

I wish to make the following objections to this proposal.
1. Access to the site from the A413 via Walnut Drive would be unsuitable, and far worse at the Leckhamstead Road Welmore Point.
2. This would be using good arable farmland.
3. Will further worsen existing traffic problems.
4. Will increase demand for medical/social and schools already overstretched.
5. Will remove parking for householders and businesses.
6. This would be far to large an increase in population, and would have a negative impact on the village socials and enivormentals.

OBJECT Ms F. Mari

Summary:

Any development will result in increased noise, air and light pollution, both during construction and subsequent occupation. Takes little comfort from VALP paragraphs 8.46 and 47 that residents should not be 'unreasonably' harmed and questions what level of harm is considered reasonable. Noise/light pollution negatively impact on mental and physical well-being and so impact on quality of life. Strongly objects to VALP on the grounds that it is highly likely to prove physically and mentally injurous as well as environmentally deleterious.

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

Summary:

Policy D-MMO006 indicates that the site will deliver between 2017 and 2022, clearly this
is completely unrealistic given the outline nature of the application and its current status.
Indeed, we note that the VALP Housing Land Supply Soundness document outlines that
the site will in fact deliver between 2021/22 to 2025/26. The inconsistency between the
two documents requires clarification.

OBJECT Anglian Water Services Limited (Planning Liaison Manager

Summary:

Reference is made to there being a need for an updated assessment of surface water sewerage network capacity. It appears that this is a reference to assessment of sites by Anglian Water which appears in the Council's Water Cycle Study to support the preparation of the Local Plan.

OBJECT Auril McMillian

Summary:

I strongly object to the Council's plan to build 170 homes in the village of Maids Moreton, as I understand is proposed in the local plan. The site in question is hugely unpopular with the local community, many of whom have objected to the current planning application for it.

OBJECT Mr Richard Atkins represented by Maids Moreton Parish Council (Clerk to the Council

Summary:

Infrastructure will be unable to cope, Main Street has no public footpath and Foscote Road is dangerous for 2 way traffic. the site is green belt pasture land. there are no public facilities to accommodate 60% increase in population, in particular doctors and schools.

OBJECT Maids Moreton Parish Council (Clerk to the Council

Summary:

I reject the planning of 170 houses in Maids Moreton. This will bring more traffic, conjestion and too many cars in a village. Maids Moreton is a village and does not require more houses to built in such a small village. There are plenty of other areas that could be expanded. Thoughts if more people coming and trying to get into doctors, schools etc, has not been taken into account.

Representation ID: 983

OBJECT Dr Mary Hadley

Summary:

1. The increase of 61% population is over the average of 16% for medium villages and Maids Moreton should be classified as a small village.
2. The development is north of the village while job opportunities etc. are to the south. Traffic will move through the village and Buckingham causing further congestion and pollution.
3. The woodland area between Foscote Road and The Pightle will be destroyed along with the fauna and flora found there. Possible contamination of Foscote Reservoir.
4. The local amenities (Public House, school and childrens' park) will be overstretched.

OBJECT Mr Peter Circuit

Summary:

Object to MMO006, it was previously unsuitable, no evidence of works to change this status while the reverse situation applies to the other originally suitable plot. There are issues with access and impact on the highway infrastructure, there are no facilities in the village save for the Wheatsheaf, the church and school (currently full) resulting in need for all other services to be provided from Buckingham at the closest, making transport a key issue. Buckingham and its environs are already a commuter area with limited opportunities for employment and the development would give little to the town or village community

Representation ID: 972

OBJECT Mrs Janice Circuit

Summary:

Object to MMO006, at a public meeting this land was unsuitable, the proposal here will destroy the community and identity, will compromise the clearly defined boundary of Maids Moreton, increasing the population by 61%, will destroy the natural environment and exacerbate highway infrastructure that is already compromised. Buckingham is already a commuter area with limited opportunities for employment, the development would give little to the town or village community. There are now very few facilities within the village resulting in need for all other services to be provided from Buckingham at the closest, making transport a key issue

Representation ID: 971

OBJECT Mr Duncan Macey

Summary:

Objects to the allocation as it represents a high population increase for Maids Moreton which is much higher than the average for other medium villages. There is little employment and Maids Moreton is being singled out to accommodate housing needs of the south of the county. It will destroy the natural environment and views and use farmland/pastureland. It will destroy the character of the village and will worsen existing traffic/parking problems. It will increase demand for overstretched services and does not represent sustainable development.

OBJECT Diana Owen

Summary:

I have strong objections to this site being developed for the reasons given above and feel that MM is being penalised for falling by default within the 'medium' category when we should in fact be 'small'. If this development goes ahead it will be the precedent for a full rounding off exercise and the village's identity will be lost forever and the road structure does not lend itself to sufficient improvement as it is constricted by the conservation area and the number of houses already abutting the road.

OBJECT Ms Jane Wood

Summary:

- Maids Moreton is not a 'medium village'. The scale of development is disproportionate.
- There are severe physical constraints at the proposed access points. There are better alternatives.
- The proposed new road layout would jeopardise the pub and engineering works businesses.
- Land off Scotts Lane is Unsuitable for Development

OBJECT Francesca Hinton

Summary:

Why is AVDC going against its own planning criteria? How does the VALP justify the discrepancies in housing numbers between comparable villages and why has Maids Moreton been singled out.
This is an unfair and unjust abuse of a community by a public body. This development brings no benefit to the village.

Representation ID: 873

OBJECT Mrs Kelly Ingle

Summary:

- I object to the scale of development as it will have a negative impact on the village both physically (the number of new houses proposed is too high for a village this size ) and village life (new residents will need to commute to MK, Brackley, Aylesbury as there is no new employment available in the village, the bus network runs Mon-Fri every 2 hours so is not suitable for commuting or even local shopping, there is no shop or doctors in the village, there is no cycle path between MM and Buckingham).

OBJECT Pamela Woodlock

Summary:

Objection to proposed development for 170 houses
Maids Moreton is a medium village not a large one,population increase of 60% would change it,s character.
Proposed site entrances totally inadequate not considering adjacent businesses or houses.
Increase in traffic. Maids Moreton already used as a "cut-through" to avoid town

Representation ID: 804

OBJECT Ms Pauline Kneafsey

Summary:

I wish to object to the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan as it affects Maids Moreton. As a designated medium village, Maids Moreton has been allocated development of 170 houses. This would be an increase of over 60%. The average increase in a medium village is 14%, a reasonable number that would allow gradual development. A huge increase of 60% in population growth will compromise the clearly defined boundary and change the individual character and identity of Maids Moreton. Altering the infrastructure threatens family businesses, historic homes and characteristic village entrances. There is very little employment here therefore no sustainability.

Representation ID: 801

OBJECT Bec Bray

Summary:

I object to this proposal. Maids Moreton is a small village with no amenitys other than the pub. An increase to the size of the village by 60% is totally unreasonable. It will completely change the appearance and destory much of the natural wildlife. The roads are too narrow to accomodate any increase in traffic, and the local schools are already overflowing with applicants. Further more, the local surgerys (Buckingham) can not cope with the already large increase in population in the area, with many people having to travel to Steeple Claydon.
I strongly object to this proposal.

Representation ID: 783

OBJECT Mr Keith Howell

Summary:

Further comment, under D3 Housing development at smaller villages this development fails all of the criteria. Overall this development does not meet the accepted definition of sustainable development, together with a completely unrealistic vehicular access onto both Walnut Drive and Foscote Road with inevitable congestion to Main Street. This development would also increase the population of Maids Moreton in excess of 60%. the average for all medium classified villages is 14%.

OBJECT Mr Dave Hancock

Summary:

The VALP appears to disproportionately impact Maids Moreton with an increase in population much greater than for other medium villages (60%). In addition there are limited employment opportunities in the immediate vicinity suggesting that such significant growth is unsuitable / unsustainable, this will simply add to already over stretched transport networks. Such significant growth will irreversably damage the essential quality of the village in terms of identity, community and not to mention the appearance and visual feel which the conservation area seeks to protect.

Representation ID: 651

OBJECT Mrs Jillian King

Summary:

I strongly object to the above planning application.
Maids Moreton is a SMALL village not medium as stated.
The proposed entry via Foscott Road, a very narrow country lane, and Walnut Drive will exacerbate the existing traffic problems . Parking outside the Blacksmiths workshop and The Wheatsheaf, both valued amenities, would be impossible. This area has no footpath and no room to install one.
The bus service is extremely limited and all facilities, Doctors, shops etc are in Buckingham.
The land is valuable grazing and arable land. The hedgerows and would be destroy along with the abundant wildlife.

Representation ID: 646

OBJECT Mr John White

Summary:

No legal obligation for developers to comply with proposals identified in VALP.
Previous Inspection Reports have refused permission for development in this area.
Highways infrastructure issues and unsafe roads.
Physical Infrastructure does not meet demands of further development.

Representation ID: 621

OBJECT Ms Lyn Robinson

Summary:

AVDC Saved Policies 53/54 oppose impacting Conservation Areas. This development would introduce into a Conservation Area and a confined space a roundabout 14m from the A413, impactful street furniture, double yellow lines, restrictions on parking to key village busineses and cottages.
To increase the population of Maids Moreton by over 60% is unsustainable re. road infrastructure, amenities, community well-being.
This development is materially and socially incompatible with the proposed Oxford/Cambridge corridor. Nor is it in line with the Buckingham Neighbourhood Plan.

More details about Rep ID: 621

Representation ID: 619

OBJECT Mr Lennard Hadley

Summary:

Insufficient transport access and public services. Proposed increase of 60% population has not sufficiently taken into account the services available, and existing community. Moreton Road is already a burden to traffic in Buckingham town centre, where other access through Foscote Road and College Farm Road to the A422 are narrow country lanes and unmarked.The proposal does not provide any suggestions to improved access to healthcare, education, retail or key employment areas. It would be more appropriate to leverage on new investment in the Oxford-Cambridge Corridor.

OBJECT Mr Tim Powell

Summary:

I Object to the VALP proposal (D-MMO006).
Other than a small primary school and a pub the village has few amenities and employment of its own, instead being entirely reliant on Buckingham and towns to the south.
*Disproportionate - doubles size of the village with limited standalone facilities
*Disproportionate - largest impact of any similar sized villages in North Bucks
*Ill-conceived Transport planning - Additional strain on already deficient transport routes
*Ill-conceived location - Government approved east west transport links, associated new towns and connected jobs all to the south of Buckingham,
*Community - Such significant change threatens village community

Representation ID: 591

OBJECT Ms Pamela Viccars

Summary:

Maids Moreton is classed as a medium sized village yet VALP proposes a 61% increase - clearly this is against the promised guidelines of VALP.

Previous developments have seriously increased traffic within the village and Mill Lane in particular has clearly become a rat run to Stratford Road for the new housing developments along the Moreton Road which we were assured would not happen. It did. The proposed additional housing will simply add to this along with the additional traffic now heading towards Leckhampstead - yet another short cut to get to the Stony Stratford/Milton Keynes road.

One of the wonderful characteristics of living in this country is its beautiful villages. Such developments devastate village communities and identities, destroying and swamping what and who they are. Maids Moreton will just become a commute village for people who work and shop elsewhere.

The local infrastructure: roads, schools, medical facilities, communications are already proving inadequate for the current population - there is little employment here so where is the gain for the community?

I do hope that old and established communities such as Maids Moreton have a voice in these matters, we have accommodated much organic growth in housing over the last few years, these huge housing developments simply destroy and break up well established communities for ever.

Representation ID: 588

OBJECT Mrs Sheila Tobin

Summary:

I object to this plan because the increase in population will destroy the quality of village life. There are no jobs available nearby therefore the residents will have to commute which will make the roads very dangerous. Apart from a small infant school there are no other schools nearby which means the children will have to be taken to school by car.

Developments of this size should be built in towns and cities and not in villages.

Representation ID: 583

OBJECT Jean Whitebread

Summary:

The village cannot sustain such an influx as we do not have the medical/social services or traffic infrastructure to cope with the increase. The plan fails to provide evidence that these concerns would be met adequately without compromising the village community spirit and feel currently present in Maids Moreton.

Representation ID: 568

OBJECT Unknown (Mr Peter Rawlins)

Summary:

My main objections are two fold. The specific application for site reference MMO006, and the current application 16/00151/AOP is significantly out of context and proportion to the existing structure of Maids Moreton.

In the wider context my overall objection is that the actual identity of Maids Moreton as a separate historic village will be lost, as the size of the village grows by 60% it will become a suburb of Buckingham, without the amenities, transport and support to sustain the developments proposed.

Representation ID: 562

OBJECT Mrs Charlotte Heald

Summary:

I object on the grounds of validity and soundness of the VALP in that Maids Moreton has been categorised as a medium village- I believe it should be categorised as a small village, having only 4 out of 6 characteristics.
If the development goes ahead the village population will increase by over 60% when the average in the plan is 14%.
The development will have a detrimental impact on amenities and transport in the village and have a massive impact on every villager's way of life.

Representation ID: 526

OBJECT Mr Gerard Hendriksen

Summary:

1) Maids Moreton will grow from about 850 to 1450 and this is far beyond the capacity of the community/ existing facilities.
2) Access via Walnut drive to Buckingham centre will result in traffic bottlenecks at Moreton Road and Buckingham town (see 2014 recommendation of Highway Authority for development of 130 homes west of Castlemilk
3) Foscot entrance has limited capacity due to narrow roads connecting to MM and 422
4) The new inhabitants will be employed in Aylesbury and MK (48 and 19%, Croft study)
5) Loss of biodiversity in area between Pightle and the water reservoir

More details about Rep ID: 526

Representation ID: 525

OBJECT mr Anthony Clarke

Summary:

Maids Moreton is a small village and consequently 170 houses does not represent sustainable growth this development would double the size of the village. A more logical increase in housing would be about 10%.
Buckingham has very few employment prospects, therefore any new householders would become commuters the road network is unfit.
The village has only one pub and a small village hall parking restrictions would seriously disrupt these two community meeting places.
The two entrance points are not capable of providing safe access for a development of this scale even with the proposed inadequate road changes.

Representation ID: 499

OBJECT Mrs Sheilagh Rawlins

Summary:

I OBJECT TO THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT:
1. MAIDS MORETON IS A SMALL VILLAGE AND THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT WOULD INCREASE THE POPULATION SIZE BY AN UNACCEPTABLE 60%.
2. THERE IS LITTLE INFRASTRUCTURE IN THIS SMALL VILLAGE WHICH IS HEAVILY DEPENDENT ON THE AMENITIES IN BUCKINGHAM. CONSEQUENTLY, THE INCREASE IN POPULATION WOULD NOT BE PROVIDED FOR IN TERMS OF LOCAL AMENITIES.
3. THE PLAN WILL PUT MORE VEHICLES ONTO THE NARROW COUNTRY LANES OF MAIDS MORETON WHICH ARE NOT DESIGNED FOR THIS.
4. FOSCOTE ROAD IS A FAILED ROAD. NOT SUITABLE FOR HEAVY TRAFFIC. BUILDING WORK TRANSPORTATION WOULD DESTROY THE ROAD COMPLETELY.

More details about Rep ID: 499

Representation ID: 498

OBJECT Dave Pearce

Summary:

I object to this development because -

1. There is a significant road and pedestrian safety issue with the limited width of Foscote Road.
2. It will destroy habitat for local fauna and flora, including badgers and bats.
3. It will increase traffic - little local employment, so people would likely commute to work elsewhere
4. It will destroy valuable farmland, and is not a brownfield site.
5. It will increase demands on stretched local rural infrastructure.
6. It will damage the village community.
7. The proposal's not in accordance with the widely accepted definition of sustainable development.

OBJECT Foscote Parish Meeting (Lady Rima Scott)

Summary:

Foscote Parish objects to this development on the following grounds:
The proposed exit from the site will lead to traffic jams at the junction with Walnut Drive/Main Street/A413; Main Street/ Foscote Road; and College Lane/A422.
The other proposed exit onto Foscote Road will lead to traffic coming through Foscote hamlet on a single traffic road with a blind bend, or by Leckampstead Road, a 'Failed Road'.
The development would increase the current population of Maids Moreton by 425 or 50%.
VALP2 allocates 274 dwellings to 'medium' villages. It proposes that Maids Moreton's allocation should be 170, over half this total.

OBJECT Mr Gary HUGHES

Summary:

The proposal is fatally flawed due to the mis-categorisation of Maids Moreton in the VALP as a 'medium village'. The village fails to satisfy a sufficient number of the key criteria required (i.e. 6 - 7) as defined within the Settlement Hierarchy Assessment for the Vale of Aylesbury Vale. Maids Moreton satisfies only 4 of the key criteria and should in fact, be correctly categorised as a 'small village'. There is no hourly bus service or a primary school as incorrectly listed in Appendix A (1) Aylesbury Vale Settlement Audit Assessment December 2016

More details about Rep ID: 475

Representation ID: 472

OBJECT Mr Graham Maw

Summary:

An increase of 60% for Maids Moreton is unreasonable considering that the average village increase in VALP is 14%.
No infrastructure exists or is proposed to support this level of building. Maids Moreton is considered a Medium Village when in fact it is a Small Village without good transport links.
Over a mile to the nearest shops.
The entrance to the new estate impacts on a Grade 11 listed building and the Conservation Area.
Other sites exist nearer to Buckingham which could be expanded to accommodate your VALP requirements.

2. This would be using good arable farmland.
3. Will further worsen existing traffic problems.
4. Will increase demand for medical/social and schools already overstretched.
5. Will remove parking for householders and businesses.

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Charles & Hilary Frogley

Summary:

1.Being a resident of Maids Moreton village,it takes no account of Maids Moreton as a separate settlement,but lumps it in as a district of Buckingham.
2.200 extra houses all built at once will constitute, on average occupancy,an increase in population for the village approaching 60%.
3.Where in the plan is the provision of extra educational places,extra healthcare facilities and extra employment opportunities for the new residents.In short the plan puts the cart before the horse!
4.The place in the village proposed ,is the worst of the 3 large scale development options proposed over the last 2 years for transport and traffic.The road leading out of the village from this development is described as a failed road by BCC.Hence virtually all the extra traffic generated will be routed back into the village on a narrow road with on road parking for residents and which also carries a considerable number of agricultural vehicles.The extra traffic going through the village will cause danger to existing residents.
Any housing development in Maids Moreton needs to be at the edge of the village with direct access either to the A422 Milton Keynes road or the A413 Towcester road.

OBJECT mr Simon Page

Summary:

Maids Moreton is an idyllic country village and should not be any further developed. We have been classed as a Medium Village when in fact we do not satisfy the criteria to be a Medium Village.

The proposed development would increase the population of the village by more than 60% where as the national average is 14%, this is simply not sustainable with the infrastructure and amenities currently available.

OBJECT Mr Dave Bowerman

Summary:

The road system around the area is already not fit for purpose, the proposal will cause chaos, endanger life and create risk.
The proposal merely provides housing for the needs of businesses in the south and does not enhance the local employment and community.
Its a destruction of idyllic and picturesque pastoral land, we should be using available brownfield sites.
The unique character of the village will be destroyed.
Medical, social and education services will be overwhelmed.

I fear the growth of a crowded warren of housing effecting the community and the identity of semi-rural life.

OBJECT Ms Sandra Truscott

Summary:

My principal objection is that there are virtually no employment opportunities in this locality. New residents (as do current residents) will have to commute to either Aylesbury or Milton Keynes, thus adding to traffic congestion, wear and tear on the roads, delayed journeys and all the misery which comes with commuting.

Why place so many new houses in an area only for it to become a dormitory village/commuter belt? Surely it is preferable to build housing where it is needed - in areas of high employment.

I read with interest of developments in Germany which mix housing and light industry, thus cutting down on commuting and ennabling people to live near to their place of work. Has anyone thought of relaxing planning laws in Aylesbury and/or MK so that housing can be provided in areas which have been until now designated as commercial?

OBJECT Mrs Diana Clark

Summary:

I object to the proposed development. My reasons are:
1. Increased traffic, no parking for residents or businesses, poor access for emergency vehicles, buses and larger lorries.
2. Building on a greenfield site.
3. Limited places at village school.
4. Already stretched GP surgeries, with, I hear, more GP's moving from the area and according to the press, little hope of them being replaced.
5. Loss of natural habitat for flora and fauna.
6. Very little unemployment in Buckingham, therefore anyone moving to the proposed homes will have to commute.
7. We are a small village, not a Buckingham satellite.

Summary:

* It does not meet the definition of sustainable development. With such an overwhelming increase of houses the village would lose it's character, identity and community spirit!

* It is building on pasture and farmland, not brown field sites and will destroy much natural environment and wild life
* The added traffic problems would be horrendous in Main Street, already often difficult to navigate, affect exiting Walnut Drive and remove needed parking for business.
* There is already a heavy demand for medical and social services that are overstretched.
* With little employment in the local area would mean it would become a dormitory village

Summary:

I am writing to object to the VALP proposal of destruction of Maids Moreton due to:
1: Will destroy the character of the village
2: Will damage the visual aspect of the village
3: Will increase demand for Medical and Social services
4: Will further worsen the existing traffic conditions
5: Will remove existing householder parking
6: Will destroy natural environment
7: This does not meet the widely accepted definition of sustainable development.

OBJECT Mr Scott Broadhead

Summary:

I object to the proposal for Maids Moreton:-

This is a massive development for a medium sized village.
No other village is proposed with a huge addition (over 60% in size)

Over 200 more cars daily will be a danger to the existing environment.

Maids Moreton has already been impacted by the developments on Moreton Road. Other areas should receive their own share of developments.

The proposed development is on farmland, and does not use existing brownfield sites in the local area first.

The proposed development ruins the local natural environment and reduces open space to the north of Buckingham

OBJECT Mr Simon Hull

Summary:

My main objection is the increase in traffic this development will create. The are few employment opportunities in Buckingham so this development will further increase traffic through the village and into MK as people drive to work. 170 houses probably means 300-400 additional cars on local roads daily, cutting through the village and increasing congestion on the A421 and A422.

The fields that are proposed to be built on are beautiful natural areas enjoyed by local people. The identity of the village will be compromised.

Local facilities - schools, Doctors, the leisure centre etc will all become even more overstretched.

OBJECT Ms Vanessa Nagy

Summary:

The village cannot support another 170 homes especially not in this location coming out into Main Street where there are places with no path for pedestrians already.

OBJECT Mr Daniel Nagy

Summary:

The village does not have the infrastructure for an additional 170 homes, especially not in this location coming out onto main street where there are parts of it with no path ways so is already dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists.

OBJECT Mr Max Nagy

Summary:

The village infrastructure cannot support these 170 houses, it is already dangerous on Main Street for pedestrians and cyclists (some areas have no path at all and with increased parking it is dangerous to walk along).

OBJECT Mr Peter Harman

Summary:

I object to the VALP Proposal to increase the population of Maids Moreton by 61%.
I object as the proposed VALP will destroy the natural environment and reduce open vistas.
I object as the proposed VALP intends to build on pasture & farmland, not brownfield sites.
I object as the proposed VALP will destroy the specific feeling of a village community.
I object as the proposed VALP as it will increase demand for medical/social services that are already overstretched.
I object as the proposed VALP will compromise the clearly defined boundary and individual character of the village.

OBJECT Mrs Joanne Askham

Summary:

I object to this plan. Maids Moreton already has an issue with vehicle access, vehicle speed and increased number of vehicles. It is not safe for children to walk in the village for emergency services to get to people - more houses would increase this issue. It will damage the visual aspect of our village and destroy the wonderful community we have in existence. We should not be used to accommodate housing needs of the south of the county. Destroying farmland and pasture is absolutely terrible for our community and our childrens future.

OBJECT Mr Matthew Dale-Evans

Summary:

I object to this huge increase in new housing for the village of Maids Moreton. This particular application for 170 new homes is far too much. It almost doubles the size of the village. My understanding from the VALP Plan was that villages would get 'proportionate' increases relative to their certain size. This is entirely out of step with this thinking/policy.

OBJECT Miss Kate Lawson

Summary:

This site is not safely accessible for 170 houses. The infrastructure of the village is not able to cope with any a sizeable increase. The roads are not able to cope physically (Foscote Road) or safely Walnut Drive and the plan makes no provision to support traffic. The plan is not sustainable with limited public transport. The safety of pedestrians is in question due to lack of pavement on Main Street.

OBJECT Mr Tim Jones

Summary:

There are currently 330 houses in Maids Moreton, an addition of 170 would increase housing stock by 50% in a single development, which will turn the village into an area of Buckingham, instead of a village.

The addition of circa 350 additional vehicles commuting in to, and out of the village is completely unsustainable. The two access entry points for this estate proposal are extremely dangerous, this is clearly a speculative land grab which should be immediately rejected.

OBJECT Mr Patrick Hardcastle

Summary:

This development would increase the population of MM by around 60%; this is hugely disproportionate to proposed developments in all other medium villages being 4 times the average. The proposal would irrevocably alter MM and destroy its fabric as a distinct community; traffic management proposals are badly conceptualised. This location is poorly selected given employment patterns, would entail much commuting and does not meet adequately sustainability criteria. Furthermore, MM only meets 5 of the criteria for a medium village. Given current plans to consolidate development along and around the east-west link, this proposal is severely misplaced and should be rejected.

OBJECT Mr Jeremy Bloss

Summary:

The main issues for me are :
Maids Moreton's classification as a Medium Village
No transparency as to how villages are classified
Disproportionate allocation of housing in Maids Moreton compared to other villages
Retro-Fitting of an existing planning application into the plan
Lack of clarity about the other 170 housing application in Maids Moreton parish next to Page Hill in Buckingham
