Another Aylesbury development set for go-ahead

That's despite worries about even more traffic on the A41.

Another Aylesbury development set for go-ahead

Almost 160 more homes could be built off the A41 in Aylesbury, if permission is given today.

AVDC are deciding on yet another site off the Aston Clinton Road, on top of other developments already happening.

The site at Weston Mead Farm would include:

  • Up to 157 dwellings
  • Public open space
  • A play area

The objections

There have been worries about traffic, due to the other developments going on along the road.

We already have lots of construction going on on the A41

Houses have already been/are being built on the opposite side off New Road.

Recently, work started on the land surrounding Weston Mead Farm, causing traffic chaos for many.

Around 420 homes will be built here, along with a pub and hotel and a care home.

More houses are of course planned, with Hampden Fields and Woodlands just up the road.

Many of the objections, from parish councils, revolve around the impact on our roads.

Managing extra traffic

Access to this site will be via a junction which has actually been sat on the A41 for years:

Plans say traffic will be able to enter the new estate from both sides of Aston Clinton Road, but will only be able to exit towards Aston Clinton.

There will also be access from the New Road crossroads which are being created, as of August 2019, through that other development on its way.

As a way to deal with extra traffic, there are proposals to widen more of the A41, as has been done from Bedgrove to New Road, on both sides past this new development.

In AVDC's report, they say how they want to see the Link Roads around the town built by 2021 and that this should ease some of these concerns, also.

Other commitments

Developers will have to agree to terms set by the council.

They include giving financial contributions to schools, both primary and secondary, as well as towards health services.

Bucks Healthcare have told AVDC that developers will need to pay for extra capacity at our hospital and GP surgeries.

It has been recommended that the planning application is delegated to AVDC planning officers for approval, although councillors will meet today to discuss this plan alone.
