I recently received a letter from Buckinghamshire County Council concerning Arla and the A41/A4157 junction, which I thought may be of interest to constituents and have therefore enclosed a copy below.

A number of constituents including local business owners have contacted me concerned that any delay in Arla’s planning application by calling it in will damage the local economy and could result in Arla abandoning their proposals in the area completely. Therefore, I have written to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government in order to pass on their concerns. A copy of my letter is enclosed below and I will post a copy of any reply I receive.
I recently held a meeting with a group of residents from Buckland and Aston Clinton who had commissioned reports on Arla’s proposals and wished to discuss these with me. Following that meeting, I took up various issues with Ministers, local authorities and officials and I have posted some of the letters I sent and responses I have received so far below. I will post any further replies that I receive.
Arla has now sent in its formal planning applications to AVDC. On Friday, the company briefed me on what they were proposing and how they had amended their plan in the light of comments by local residents. I also went to the site, next to the waste transfer station alongside the College Road North industrial estate, to have a look at the land that would be built on if this scheme goes ahead.
You can see details of the Arla proposal at this site . If you want to make representations to the Council either against or in support of the proposal, you have until three weeks after the site notices are first posted to make your views known. I do not know exactly when the site notices will be posted, but am told by AVDC that it will be within the next two weeks. I will update this blog post as soon as I hear of the actual date.
The documents associated with Arla’s planning applications (of which there are four) can be found on the AVDC web-site here. You will need to search for planning applications 11/00962, 11/00963, 11/00964, and 11/00965.
