Buckinghamshire Council is inviting the community to participate in a crucial consultation regarding the RAF Halton site's redevelopment. This initiative aims to transform RAF Halton into a vibrant residential neighbourhood, capitalising on the site's brownfield status. The proposed plan includes a number of amenities, such as a primary school, a local center, and enhanced green spaces, ensuring a blend of convenience and quality living for both new and existing residents.
This redevelopment, guided by a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), marks a significant step in the site's transition from military to residential use. The SPD elaborates on the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan's growth objectives, emphasising a well-structured development framework in collaboration with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.
Aylesbury MP Rob Butler said, "Sadly, RAF Halton is due to close in 2027. Plans are well underway for a new housing development on the site. Today, I met Buckinghamshire Council cabinet member for planning Peter Strachan to highlight the need for adequate roads, schools and health centres.
To often in the past local residents have suffered when new developments have been built. That can't happen again.
I know residents have strong views, and I've previously spoken to Halton Parish Council about the plans. A consultation is now open on the proposals, so please take the time to have a look and share your opinions. https://yourvoicebucks.citizenspace.com/planning/raf-halton/"
Join the consultation open until 4th March and help shape RAF Halton's future.
