Planning Applications

Planning applications are submitted to Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC)’s planning department and once validated these are sent to Parish Councils for consultation. Other agencies are also consulted – e.g. Highways, Environment, Heritage. Once all consultations are received and analysed it is up to AVDC to determine whether or not an application is to be approved or refused. Decisions can only be judged against planning laws and guidelines – in particular the National Planning Policy Framework. If a decision is disputed the applicant may appeal to the Planning Inspectorate which then makes a recommendation to the Secretary of State.

Applications can be searched in detail by clicking here and entering the application number or address. Members of the public may also make comments via the AVDC planning portal or by writing to the planning officer.
