Pitstone’s neighbourhood plan is now in place

14 Apr 2016

On Thursday 14 April, the neighbourhood plan for Pitstone was officially ‘made’ – which means that it has now been completed and approved by Aylesbury Vale District Council. 

A major function of neighbourhood plans, such as the one which has been produced for Pitstone, is that they are used to inform planning decisions within the framework of Aylesbury Vale’s overall development plan.  

AVDC is also working on twenty-eight other neighbourhood plans for different localities. In each case, the district council supports local communities by providing them with essential advice on the neighbourhood planning process, ensuring that each individual plan is broadly in line with local and national planning policies.  

AVDC also organises and conducts referendums, before helping to ensure that neighbourhood plans are adopted and implemented.  

Cllr Carole Paternoster, Cabinet Member for Growth Strategy, said: “The residents of Pitstone are to be congratulated on the successful submission of their neighbourhood plan, which will undoubtedly have a significant influence over the future development of their locality. The district council will continue working closely with communities across Aylesbury Vale on important planning issues, including the completion of neighbourhood plans.” 

Details of the Pitstone neighbourhood plan are now available at AVDC’s website:


 The relevant documents are also available for public viewing at AVDC’s offices in The Gateway, Aylesbury and at Beacon Villages Community Library in Ivinghoe, or by contacting the Parish Clerk of Pitstone Parish Council at: parishclerk@pitstone.co.uk
