Planning and Traffic Update
Sunday 14 January 2018

Planning Update

Members will remember last year that the Planning Inspector turned down a developers appeal on the field on the left of Halton Lane for a proposal for 175 houses.  The Society had made a submission to the Inspectorate arguing against the proposal so we were pleased to see the Inspector agreed with us. We now hear that the developer has challenged the decision. We have already made contact with AVDC and our local councillors and await to hear if they intend to contest this objection on the grounds it runs counter to the published VALP - Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan.


Traffic Issue

In our consultation reply to the VALP last year we commented on the suggestion contained in one of the technical appendices that traffic would use Hale Road / Church Lane as a ‘rat run’ to avoid congestion in Wendover High Street. We believed that the suggestion to be unworkable due to the nature of the road and the narrowness of two parts of the carriageway. Wendover Parish council had recently been discussing the issue with Bucks CC and on 9th January were due to discuss a proposal to part fund an official traffic study to reopen Hale Road right up to the by-pass and to make Church Lane one-way, in other words to create a sort of official rat-run. In advance of the meeting the Society made a representation to the PC advising caution on developing the idea and to ask that residents affected should be consulted with before the idea went further. At the meeting Jeff Addison, who lives on Hale Road and is a Society member made an impassioned plea pointing out the disadvantages of the idea. We were pleased that the PC threw out the proposal and in direct response to a question confirmed that both ideas were now firmly off their agenda.
