Neighbourhood Development Plan


The Marsh Gibbon Neighbourhood Development Plan, that we met to discuss last October, is now a stage nearer completion. The Parish Council approved the final version on June 10, and it has now been submitted to Aylesbury Vale District Council. They will put it out for consultation for six weeks; then it is inspected by an independent examiner. The examiner can recommend modifications to the plan if they are required. If there are modifications these will be considered by AVDC as well as the Parish Council. Then it’s the opportunity for everyone in the village to vote in a referendum on whether to adopt the Plan. If the vote is in favour, it will then provide specific guidance to AVDC when future planning applications are made here.

To enable everyone to understand how the Plan will help protect the future of the village, we will distribute a copy to all homes and businesses – in September. Then we’ll hold another meeting to answer any questions people have – in October; before the referendum – probably in November. So the Plan could be in force by the end of the year.

Copies are also available in the porch at St Mary’s Church and the Village Hall.
