About us -

Aylesbury Vale District Council is a forward thinking and commercially minded organisation. Our planning teams are busy working on a wide variety of projects including large scale developments that will stimulate the regeneration of the town centre, new retail and leisure developments, HS2 (with the largest length of track spanning Aylesbury Vale), East-West Rail, and the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway.

Aylesbury has also recently been awarded Garden Town status. This offers a unique chance to ensure that as the town grows, Aylesbury and the surrounding area continues to be the best possible place to live, work and visit. The ambition is simple – to create a truly desirable community in a well-planned, sustainable environment that makes us proud. Garden Town status allows us to better plan for the future, and helps us to access funding to build and improve our transport links and infrastructure.

Our planning teams have been shortlisted for various awards at the 2018 Planning Awards including Planning for the Natural Environment and Best Housing scheme (500 homes or more) for Kingsbrook, a new development of 2,450 homes, as well as Local Authority Planning Team of the Year.
