This report will propose to Council the
adoption of the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan.
Cabinet received a report on the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP). A supplementary report has also been issued to amend a minor error regarding a site area and to recommend that Council be asked to delegate authority to the Cabinet Member for Planning and Regeneration, in consultation with the Service Director for Planning and Environment, to make further minor amendments that would not alter the implementation of the plan.
Following it’s submission in 2018, the appointed Inspector had completed his Examination of the plan and prepared his binding report setting out how the VALP should be modified in order to be sound. To fully enact the plan, as modified to accord with the Inspector’s report, it had to be adopted by the Council. If the plan was not adopted, it would need to be withdrawn leaving the North and Central areas of the council without an up to date Development Plan.
(1) That the Planning Inspector’s report, Appendix 2 to the agenda, be accepted.
(2) That the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan, as modified in accordance with the Inspector’s report (Appendix 1), and updated to amend a minor error regarding a site area referred to in paragraph 2.1 of the supplementary agenda report, be submitted to Council with a recommendation that it be adopted.
(3) That the final Sustainability Assessment report, detailed with the supplementary agenda, be noted.
(4) That Council be recommended to delegate authority to the Cabinet Member for Planning and Regeneration, in consultation with the Service Director for Planning and Environment, to make further minor amendments that will not alter the implementation of the plan.
