The planning framework

Current Local Development Plan

Aylesbury Vale District Local Plan (AVDLP) January 2004

Saved policies of Aylesbury Vale District Local Plan are currently in use. (After 27 September 2007, legislation meant that policies in the Aylesbury Vale District Local Plan (AVDLP) ceased to have effect unless ‘saved’ by a Direction from the Secretary of State.  The purpose of this was to ensure that local planning authorities brought forward their Local Development Frameworks quickly. )

The Vale of Aylesbury Plan (VAP)

The VAP Strategy was submitted to government for an independent examination on Monday 12 August 2013. The Planning Inspectorate advised the withdrawal of the emerging Vale of Aylesbury Plan in 2014. This was due to concerns regarding the lack of five year housing supply and number of jobs planned.
