The next meeting will be held

at 8pm on Tuesday 13 August 2024





The Parish Council would like to make all residents aware of an approach that has been made by a land agent, Catesby Estates based in Rugby, Warwickshire. They are seeking outline planning permission on behalf of their clients for the development of agricultural land behind Station Road/Millfield Avenue and Little Marsh Road for residential purposes. The proposal would be in the region of 100 homes and encompass a variety of housing types.  As a land agent Catesby will specifically seek to gain outline planning permission for the site before selling to a developer who will submit a further detailed planning application. For clarity, this land is not owned by the Ewelme Trust, as with previous development and is being brought forward by private individual landowners.

As a Parish Council we have met with Catesby Estates on Tuesday 26th March 2024. We felt that this was necessary to establish their plans, timelines and thought process before feeding back to the village. We have stressed the importance to Catesby that they should consult with the residents of Marsh Gibbon before any planning application is submitted, they have agreed to this and will be holding an open evening at an exact date TBC. Catesby have also advised that they will continue to develop their plans and look to present a more detail proposal at the consultation evening.

Until a planning application is submitted then there is no way for any consultee to support or object to this proposal. However the Parish Council does not feel that these plans, as they currently stand meet the necessary conditions for development outlined within the Marsh Gibbon Neighbourhood Development Plan or the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP)

We have provided the initial plans, which Catesby are happy for us to share as well as the link to the information on their website which can be found here Below is also a timeline of activities that Catesby will be working towards, once we have further information on this and an exact date for the consultation, we will inform the village.

Our next Parish Council meeting will be held on the 9th April at 8pm, whilst we are always happy to hear from members of the village on local issues, do bear in mind that we will not have any further information or comment on this specific topic. However, do rest assured that we have engaged with our local county council representatives and other stakeholders to ensure we have the best information available.
