Developers have been accused of opportunism after plans to build 135 homes on the edge of Aylesbury were submitted to the district council.

The development, proposed by the Broughton Farming Partnership, would be south of the A41 between Bedgrove and New Road.

Councillor Phil Yerby, who has campaigned against the proposed Hampden Fields development, said he was ‘extremely disappointed’ with the timing of the application.

Mr Yerby said: “It is clearly another opportunistic development before the Vale of Aylesbury Plan has been adopted and obviously while so much of my constituents’ time is being taken up in fighting Hampden Fields.

“If the developer feels we will in any way be distracted by this then they will be sorely mistaken.

“We will scrutinise this development with the same vigour as Hampden Fields.”

If built, the development would include a mixture of one to five-bed homes and 35% affordable housing.

A decision is expected on the application before the end of September.

A consultation on the Vale of Aylesbury Plan, which sets out housing and employment targets in the district up to 2031, finishes today (Wednesday). For more information, visit the district council website.
