Ainscough stated:

  • It is under contract with the landowners for a specific period to bring the land forward as appropriate.
  • AVDC confirmed the land as Brown Field 2 years ago.
  • It is aware of 2 previous attempts to get large scale housing on the site and believe they can overcome the objections raised at the time.
  •  Ainscough see the new village as free-standing and therefore separate to Marsworth, with 2-bedroomed housing upwards.
  • To guarantee the proposed benefits of school, shop, etc the scheme proposals will be captured during planning consent or a 106 agreement.  Ainscough stated that it will have a triple-lock with three different entities having the power to enforce compliance.
  • MPC argued that roadway access was totally inadequate, but Ainscough believe they can overcome the issues..  Bus access issues can be overcome as can construction delivery through an agreed Construction Management Plan.
  • It has had 70 responses out of a mailout of 1,000 to an area around the scheme. (MPC will carry out a similar survey).
  • As the land is part Bucks and part Dacorum, it will be engaging with Tring Rural Parish Council as well as Marsworth Parish Council (not Pitstone or Cheddington Parish Councils).


MPC opinion (by majority) is that it is far too much housing and in the wrong  place

It is to be put forward as a ‘windfall site’ as it is not part of the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP).

Planning submission to take place by the end of this year.
