Masterplan revealed for Aylesbury following Garden Town status

Aylesbury was awarded Garden Town status in 2017. 

The Draft Masterplan is a 180 page document setting out goals and values for Aylesbury.

Being given Garden Town status means that Aylesbury can receive money from the Government for the area.

The plan is split into 8 categories, from transport to sustainability.

A 6 week consultation period has been launched for Aylesbury locals to respond. 

Unlike most local plans this sets out goals until 2050, which those behind say shows they are thinking about the future for all. 

The aim is to transform Aylesbury into an innovative, vibrant and healthy town. 

People are being asked to fill out a questionnaire on their thoughts of the plans, but also attend roadshow events. 

Bill Capple OBE, is Cabinet Member for planning and environment at BBC and is also chairman of the Aylesbury Garden Town Board behind the master plan:

"The work of everyone in Aylesbury town and around. The more inclusive the comments are the more inclusive Aylesbury will be in the future."

Through the next 6 weeks there will be 8 events where the creators of the plan will be answering questions and explaining the plan. 

These will be held on:

  • Wednesday 8 January at Stoke Mandeville Olympic Lodge Room 3, HP21 9PP, 6pm to 8pm
  • Monday 13 January at 19 The Aylesbury Vale Academy Primary, HP18 OFG, 6pm to 8pm
