Aylesbury Jobs and Home Plan Consultation

11 March 2013, 06:00 | Updated: 11 March 2013, 09:24

A consultation's starting over plans for 6,000 homes in Aylesbury over the next 15 years.

The district council published a draft version of its Local Plan on Thursday 28 February. 

The Local Plan maps out the main sites for new houses in the Vale for the next 15 years. It also earmarks the places the council believes are the best locations for new jobs.

People are being urged to let the council know if they think there are better locations for the jobs and homes the district needs.

The Local Plan also sets out important requirements for infrastructure, services and facilities. The consultation will run for a ten week period.

The draft plan's available for a four week period in advance of the statutory six week consultation period to allow the public to review and familiarise themselves with the document. 

On 28 March, the evidence base reports and supporting documentation will be published and the consultation will then run for the formal six week period.
