Aylesbury Vale's a great place to live, work and run a business. It's one of the south-east's success stories and a winning combination of town and country, business and pleasure. And while it has grown dramatically over the past 20 years, it has successfully combined the old with the new.
A multi-million pound investment programme is breathing new life into the county town Aylesbury, while developments such as Berryfields, just outside the town, are bringing new homes, jobs, infrastructure and opportunities for business.
The Vale's poised for further growth still, with local communities shaping how this happens through our emerging new planning policy document - The Aylesbury Vale Plan.
This growth will mean new opportunities for the people who live and work here - such as better shops and leisure, new jobs and housing.
East West Rail is a major project to establish a strategic railway connecting East Anglia with Central, Southern and Western England. The project is being promoted by the East West Rail Consortium – a group of local authorities and businesses with an interest in improving access to and from East Anglia and the Milton Keynes South Midlands growth area.
The complete East West Rail scheme comprises a strategic rail route that will link Ipswich, Norwich and Cambridge, with Letchworth, Bedford, Milton Keynes, Bicester and Oxford, allowing connections to Swindon, the Thames Valley, South West England and South Wales, together with a spur to Aylesbury.
Working closely with our partners, we're committed to preserving what's best about the area, while creating new space for people to live - and for businesses to thrive and grow.
