Aylesbury Vale residents are being given a final chance to comment on the future planning strategy for the district.

The Vale of Aylesbury Plan (VAP)Strategy, a key planning document which sets out how towns and villages throughout the district can develop up to the year 2031, has already been approvedby councillors at Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC).

There is now a six-week period when local people and businesses can comment on whether they think there is a fundamental problem that would make it unsound or not legally compliant.

The VAP Strategy sets out the vision, strategic objectives and overall jobs and housing figures for the district. It does not allocate sites for growth.

Since the development of the strategy began, there has been widespread consultation with residents across the Vale. The feedback and comments from these previous stages of consultation have helped to shape AVDC’s final version of the plan.

People can comment on the soundness and legal compliance of the plan, and on the accompanying Sustainability Appraisal, until 5pm on June 19.

Once this process is completed, the council will collate all the comments received and give them to a government-appointed planning inspector who will review any issues raised alongside the proposed strategy.

The document and details of how to make comments on the VAP Strategy and Sustainability Appraisal are available online at
