People are being given a chance to comment on the future of Aylesbury Vale jobs and developments.

The Vale of Aylesbury Plan, which sets out how towns and villages can develop up until 2031, has already been approved by councillors but will be open to the public to comment on from Wednesday.

Since the development of the strategy began, there has been widespread consultation with residents and the feedback has helped to shape the district council’s final version of the plan.

Council chief for strategic planning Carole Paternoster said: “This is a very important document which will shape the future of the district and help to attract investment for jobs, infrastructure and housing.

“Right through the preparation of the plan we have listened to what people have said and we have revised the plan where required. This is now the final chance for people to have their say before the Vale of Aylesbury Plan is submitted to the government.”

People can comment on the soundness and legal compliance of the plan, and on the accompanying sustainability appraisal until 5pm on June 19.

Comments will be collated and sent with the proposals to a planning inspector who will review all the issues raised.

The document and details of how to make comments will be available online from May 8 at www.aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/vap
