Wendover Neighbourhood Plan October 2017

While Local Plans lay out a vision of future development for a whole area, the needs of individual towns and villages within that area can vary. Neighbourhood Plans are community-led. Taking part in the writing of a Neighbourhood Plan helps you have a say in the future use of land and buildings in your neighbourhood.

There has been a lot of focus on future development within Wendover, following the recent Halton Lane Development Inquiry, which saw residents, the Parish Council, Steering Group members and local organisations come together to raise their objections about the proposed development. The outcome of this inquiry was still unpublished when Wendover News went to press. This important decision will shape Wendover influencing future development proposals and our growing need for local facilities and infrastructure.

  • The Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) was published online on Friday 15 September.
  • The Scrutiny Committee met on 26 September.
  • AVDC Cabinet meets on 10 October and the whole Council on 18 October to discuss it.

Plans for the closure of RAF Halton will also have an enormous effect on Wendover, so it is vital that we develop a clear idea about what is important in our community; what to preserve and what to change.

Look out for updates on the website, social media and around Wendover, and get in touch with your views.

Planning notices from Wendover Parish Council:

As the government plans to build more and more houses in the South East, big planning decisions are being made locally all the time.It’s difficult to keep up with all the proposed developments and understand how they will affect us given their inevitable impact on infrastructure – especially roads, facilities including health, education and leisure.
