Buckinghamshire Council adopts Aylesbury plan

Words: Huw Morris

Buckinghamshire Council has decided to adopt a local plan for the Vale of Aylesbury in a move recommended by a planning inspector.

The plan, which lasts until 2033, allocates land for 30,134 homes mostly  around Aylesbury with other development sites at Buckingham, Winslow, Haddenham and adjacent to Milton Keynes. A quarter of the homes will be affordable and between 10-15 per cent will have disabled access.

The plan also includes electric vehicle charging to be provided in every new home, while the green belt will see an increase of 98 hectares.

Work started on the plan in 2014 and went through three stages of public consultation. It will remain in force until it is superseded by the forthcoming Buckinghamshire Local Plan in 2025.
