Proposed development of 1,265 houses at “Shenley Park” Whaddon

Drop-in at Village Hall, Church End, Newton Longville

Wednesday 14th June 4 - 8pm

Organised by Parish Council, with developers Crest Nicholson attending to answer questions. Please drop-in any time between 4 and 8 pm to find out more about this proposed development and how it could affect Newton Longville, particularly traffic through the village and traffic on the A421 and other nearby roads.

You will probably have received a card in the post from Crest Nicholson about Shenley Park, for a proposed 1,265 house development to the north of the A421 within the Whaddon parish boundary, near Bottledump roundabout.

Like Salden Chase, the site is included in the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) as a Strategic Site, so the principle of housing development cannot be opposed.

Developers Crest Nicholson have already held two drop-in events at Emerson Valley and Whaddon about their consultation and have a website about it at: which has all their consultation materials. The closing date for their consultation has been extended to Saturday 17th June.

Residents need to make up their own mind, but the Parish Council has previously expressed concern about even more traffic coming through our village along Whaddon Road. Local resident and transport guru, Steve Heath, attended their drop-in and has given his views on this, see page 22 in the Village Pump.

A Scoping Report was sent to both Buckinghamshire Council (BC) and Milton Keynes City Council (MKCC). The Scoping Opinions issued by both BC and MKCC confirm that an Environmental Impact Assessment is required for the development. More details are on the BC and MKCC websites at:
