at which is was recommended for approval.
4. On 27th March, 2012 the Government adopted the new National Planning
Framework (NPPF) which came into force immediately. Aylesbury Vale
had provided a précis which had been circulated to all councillors.
5. Mr. Truesdale and Mr. Fell had attended the Vale of Aylesbury
Stakeholder Form at which feedback on all local views had been given.
The consultation will now go to Cabinet on 15th May.
6. Mr. Truesdale and Mr. Fell had attended a briefing on Neighbourhood
Planning. It was felt this is not something the PC would want to do but we
would do a new Parish Plan.
7. Mr. Truesdale had attended a meeting on Buckinghamshire Historic
Towns project. This was originated by English Heritage. 10 settlements
have had detailed studies undertaken – one of which is Haddenham. A
copy can be obtained from BCC archaeological website.
8. Freya Morris, who undertook the Conservation Area Review for
Haddenham, will work with us to do a Management Plan for the CA.
9. We had once again asked Landmatch to consider our request for a
permissive path alongside the airfield to the point on the A418 where it
crosses the road to link with Chearsley footpath. We have been informed
that they are reluctant to encourage access across the A418 at this point
given the safety concerns raised previously by BCC. It is stated that there
is a pedestrian crossing point at the junction with the new roundabout
which is judged to be a safer place for people to cross.
10. Parish Plan – Mr. Fell wished to take this forward as follows :
Review of old plan to be undertaken
Campaign through Newsletter for people to form a working group to take
Try to engage people at the Fete through the I-Van (van fully equipped
with IT equipment to encourage younger people to participate). However,
there is a cost of £450 for the event which includes staff and equipment. It
was felt this should go ahead.
11. Mr. Moore has started a Haddenham Parish Council Blog and a Twitter
account. As material arrives for the Newsletter it will be used for the blog.
