Shipton inquiry is adjourned

THE public inquiry into a proposed housing development at Shipton, near Winslow, was opened and adjourned this week.

Aylesbury Vale District Council’s development control manager, Jim Cannell, said: “The inquiry has been adjourned to await the outcome of legal action being taken by a national housebuilder, Cala Homes, against the Secretary Of State regarding the approach to be taken nationally to the interpretation of regional planning policies.

“The outcome of this action is expected in mid-January and the inquiry is scheduled to reconvene on February 14 next year.”
