Phil Yerby and John Benjamin from HFAG met Rob Butler MP on 7 Feb. He appeared to have previously been told that Aylesbury needed a ring road. It was therefore important that we were able to challenge that view with evidence including the % of traffic that would actually use a bypass, which Phil and John did. Mr Butler asked to be sent more briefing material and this was done without delay. Let’s hope that the new MP’s natural focus on Westminster will still allow him time to understand more about this issue, so vital to the constituency.
These flood alert maps cover a large area of the proposed housing development.
The draft Local Plan has been published. HFAG are very disappointed, although not surprised, that it includes 3,060 homes on Hampden Fields and a further c 3,000 joining up Aylesbury, Aston Clinton, Weston Turville & Stoke Mandeville all together.
There are also plans for over 800 in Wendover. Although this might seem a good idea to planners using maps, all the independent advice is it will cause traffic chaos by “squeezing” in these houses in the small gaps between villages.
We are currently closely examining the detail and have already arranged a public meeting for Thursday 30th June in Weston Turville Village Hall from 6.30pm. Please attend this important meeting and let others know.
HFAG and supporters at AVDC Planning offices on 14 April 2016 to hand in more than 5000 objections to Hampden Fields, and to meet the press and TV!
