The Organisation

Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) spans the northern half of Buckinghamshire and our offices are located in Aylesbury about 40 miles north west of London with direct rail links in to Marylebone.

AVDC has the largest population of any district council authority in the country, covers a large geographic area in England and has one of the highest housing growth rates in the UK, being located just outside the green belt.  Our Local Plan is scheduled for approval by Council in 2018 and makes provision for over 30,000 additional houses in the Vale.  On top of the opportunities that this growth represents we also have a number of challenging and interesting national infrastructure projects on our doorstep:

  • We are located in the East-West Oxford Cambridge growth corridor with the new Oxford Cambridge rail link passing through our area.
  • We have one of the longest stretches of the HS2 High Speed rail link passing through the Vale with all the challenges and opportunities that presents
  • Aylesbury has been nominated for Garden City status and planning for that development is currently underway
