Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) is mounting a legal challenge to the planning appeal decision allowing the planned 80-home development on Moreton Road.

In an email to district councillors yesterday, Thursday, head of planning at AVDC John Byrne said: “The basis of this challenge will be that the inspector has erred in law, primarily because of the way he has inconsistently treated the two aspects of the South East Plan – focusing on the five-year housing land requirements but ignoring the spatial split (and the reason for it) across the three areas of The Vale.”

The appeal decision will now be put on hold pending the outcome of the challenge.
