Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan Update

Published: 17 December 2020

The Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) is entering its next stage, with consultation now open on the Further Main Modifications until 9 February 2021. These are a second stage of Main Modifications and are different to the ones that were consulted on in late 2019.

The modifications mainly deal with minor errors in the existing plan, and updates to information such as expected timelines for house building. Some more significant changes relate to:

  • How the plan deals with housing for older people including new allocations
  • The transport schemes policy and;
  • Changes to retail and employment policies, because of Government changes in the planning system.

Further information on the VALP, including the Further Main Modifications and how to have your say, can be on Buckinghamshire Council’s website.
