A crowd of 180 villagers got a first glimpse of plans for a 90-home development.

Catesby Estates is planning to build a mixture of house types on the edge of Tingewick, running down the A421 Buckingham bypass.

An exhibition was set up in the village hall to give the people of Tingewick a chance to ask questions, view sketches and fill out questionnaires.

The development which will be built on the 16-acre site, will include 32 affordable homes and seven hectares of green open space.

Senior planning manager for the property group Fergus Thomas, who was at the exhibition, said: “We are still receiving feedback.

“But this will be analysed and taken into account as part of any planning application submission.

“We are currently in pre-application discussions with the district and county councils and consultees and once finalised an outline application for a mixture of housing, including much needed family and affordable housing, will be made in the summer.”

Feedback will be processed over the next month before the application is submitted.

There will then be a 13-week determination period while Aylesbury Vale District Council presents the proposals to a planning committee. During the first half of this period, formal comments can be submitted to the council.
