c)   Food Bank and S137 monies. Clerk had had a meeting with Helping Hands, Community Board and Marsworth Food Bank representatives.  Agreed to proceed to apply for Funding through Helping Hands from 21 June to 30 September and also through Community Board funding for 1 October to 31 March 2022 and then re-apply.  Finance would come in to MPC.  Section 137 monies would be considered only if other BC funding opportunities were not available.

g)   Development at Startops Farm -Watts and Company Planning Consultants had sent the PC details of a proposed redevelopment of buildings at Startops Farm for comment.  MPC recognised that it had no rights to object  to or support such an application (if made) since the land was entirely within Dacorum, Herts.  The proposed application was, however, similar to the application for buildings behind the White Lion, which was rejected both on application and by HM Planning Inspectorate on appeal and MPC believed many of the reasons for objection were likely to apply to this situation.
The proposal stated that the planned development was necessary for farm viability but did not make the case for why as many as 9 new houses, nor did it specify that one or more were to be reserved for farm workers.
It was appreciated that the style of proposed buildings was in keeping with the farm setting.  RK to circulate proposed reply to MPC before submitting to Watts and Company.

BC Report:

Census 2021

All Households across Buckinghamshire are being asked to take part in Census 2021.

Census day is on March 21, but households will now be receiving letters with online codes explaining how they can complete their surveys. If you don’t get one in the next couple of weeks, please get in touch with the census contact centre. You can also request a paper questionnaire if you’d prefer to complete your census that way.

Local census support centres will be open while the census is happening. Staff will offer help for people not confident online, who don’t have a computer, or need help completing on paper.

Ross Tackley, Census Engagement Manager from the ONS, said: “This census will be the most progessive ever. As well as being a “digital-first” census, there will be 3 new questions. The first will ask people whether they have served in the Armed Forces, and, for those 16 and over, there will be voluntary questions on sexual orientation and gender identity.”

The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, where the population of England and Wales was around 9 million, by 1851 it had doubled to 18 million.

For more information, and to find out how to get help, visit census.gov.uk, or call the contact centre on 0800 141 2021.

Council shares climate change vision Cabinet agrees actions to be carbon neutral by 2050

Buckinghamshire Council has made a firm commitment to take action against climate change by adopting 60 different actions to become carbon neutral by 2050. The Climate Change strategy, which is made up of a range of actions worth nearly £10 million, will work at a local level to tackle environmental damage and improve the air quality right across the Buckinghamshire Council area.

 

The long-term plan is to achieve net zero carbon emissions across the whole county by 2050. By setting out very specific actions it will take, the Council is committed to achieve net zero carbon emissions as early as possible. It has set a target to reduce emissions by at least 75% by 2030 and 90% by 2040 compared to estimated 1990 emissions.

The detailed strategy includes specific actions which are geared to meeting an ambitious timetable during a difficult time.

 

Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change Bill Chapple OBE, said: “The challenge is to set out the long-term vision when there are so many ‘unknown’ factors at play. At present, the short and medium term impacts of the Covid pandemic are largely unknown. No-one really knows what the future may look like or whether we will return to something closer to pre-Covid normal - for example, travel and commuting patterns may or may not continue or return to pre-Covid levels across Buckinghamshire.”

The Council has outlined practical and realistic steps it will take to reduce both its own emissions and supporting the reduction of emissions from across Buckinghamshire by 2050.

 

Buckinghamshire Council will take action to reduce emissions, for example by installing renewable energy systems (such as solar panels) on its buildings and reducing emissions from its fleet by using electric and low emission vehicles and continuing to upgrade street lighting to LEDs.

To help offset carbon emissions, over the next ten years Buckinghamshire Council is going to plant a tree for every person (543,000) living in Buckinghamshire.

 

 

 

The Council is also committed to supporting each of the 16 local community boards serving local communities across the county in their local climate control initiatives which can deliver practical carbon reduction actions at a grass roots level.

Working with all its suppliers and partners to reduce emissions it can also enable others to support change. For example, Buckinghamshire Council will continue to provide more electric vehicle charging points to extend the local infrastructure. It will also work to proactively raise public awareness of climate change and air quality issues and will use its local planning powers to reduce emissions from new developments where possible.

Bill continued: “My focus is to set out a plan which is not only aspirational and ambitious but, most importantly, achievable. The strategy we have agreed to follow is not an abstract ‘pie in the sky’ vision, it is firmly grounded in reality. It sets out not only what we want to achieve, but how we will reach net zero carbon emissions through real practical measures which are within our control to deliver. We owe it to the people we represent, and as inhabitants of the UK and the wider world to take a real-world approach and deliver on it. We’re taking action on climate change today so we can all benefit from a better tomorrow.”

 

Cabinet agrees final budget recommendations in 'difficult and challenging' circumstances due to Covid

Cabinet today confirmed its final proposals for a 1.99% increase in basic council tax and a 2% increase in the Adult Social Care Precept, resulting a total increase of 3.99% for the new financial year starting in April.

The detailed billion-pound proposals will now go forward for discussion and final agreement by the full council when it meets on 24 February.

 

While the level of council tax stays the same as Cabinet's original proposals agreed on 5 January, other changes have now been incorporated as a result of the final Local Government Settlement from national Government, the continuing effects of Covid-19 and the recommendations from the recent three-day Select Committee review.

Leader of Buckinghamshire Council, Martin Tett said that the continuing Covid pandemic made this budget setting difficult and challenging. "This is a set of proposals focussed almost entirely on getting us through the next year and hopefully then to more predictable times," he said.

"Despite the massive financial strain to keep vital services going, supporting local residents and businesses and battling against the effects of the ongoing pandemic, we've been very conscious to keep the increase in council tax as affordable as possible for local residents.

"In addition to basic council tax, the Government also proposes councils take up to 3% extra for the Adult Social Care Precept - this is the money needed to continue to look after our elderly and vulnerable adults. However despite the pressures in that area, Cabinet felt the time wasn't right and that a lower 2% precept rise was the best course of action. I am always aware that this is Council Taxpayers’ money and we need to never take more than is absolutely necessary."

A major change from the original proposals considered by Cabinet is the inclusion of another £4m for investment in drainage.

Martin continued, “It is clear that, with the effects of Climate Change and the heavy rainfall we are increasingly experiencing, we need to do more in this area. We will add extra funding and release money from our reserves to ensure that all our blocked gullies are cleared this year and for some much-needed structural repairs. In total, this will mean £7.7m spent on drainage in 2021/22."

Other changes incorporated into the final proposals include additional contingencies to cover the significant loss of income across service areas and further funding to address pressures in Children's Services.

In total, just over £2m from council reserves is planned to be used to help balance the books and deliver a legal and tested budget.

The recommendations to Council also seek authority for the Cabinet to add up to £100m worth of longer term schemes to the current capital programme, funded through prudential borrowing and with each proposal subject to a robust business case being approved.

Martin added: "As I said back in January, and with the further adjustments we've since made, this is a budget that helps manage our current pressures in the best way possible.

"Whilst other councils around the country are struggling with potential bankruptcy, despite big Council Tax increases, here in Buckinghamshire we are a financially robust council due to careful financial management, which means we are still able to respond to our residents’ priorities such as the major roads improvement programme and the new blitz on blocked drainage.

"In addition, it's also a budget that paves the way for longer term economic recovery post-Covid, which invests in local infrastructure and which puts us firmly in the starting blocks to help rebuild Buckinghamshire, and importantly jobs for our residents, after this dreadful pandemic ends."

The budget plans cover day-to-day (revenue) spending on services for 2021/22 and longer term (capital) investment spending over a four year period to 2024/25.

 

The Final Local Government Settlement was announced on 4 February 2021. There were no changes from the figures published in the Provisional Settlement 17 December 2020.

Transport for Bucks - Extreme Rainfall and Flooding

As several residents have contacted me with issues regarding local gullies and surface water flooding, I appreciate their patience since we are experiencing the worst flooding in 100 years nationally.  While our teams are trying to resolve the most urgent issues first—-particularly with fallen trees across roads as well as local flooding from recent storms—-unfortunately they are currently unable to prioritise some of the maintenance and repair works as a result. 

Looking longer term, I can say that strategic improvements are already under way.

Freight Strategy Update

I am happy to be able to provide an update from our Freight Strategy officer with regard to the forthcoming Freight Strategy Public Consultation: 

“We are at last moving toward being able to start engaging with residents and businesses on the proposal for managing freight and heavy good vehicle movements in the area known as the Ivinghoe Division. Work has started on putting together display materials, leaflets and posters along with an online survey to capture important comment from the area, feedback we can use to shape the formal consultation process. We are hoping to get the public engagement process underway in February.

 

Reporting Unauthorised Encampments

The County Council's enforcement team works closely with the district councils and Thames Valley Police to assist communities in resolving issues with encampments when they arise. However, people often have unrealistic expectations of the powers of the local authority and police to take immediate enforcement action when an encampment takes place.

In order to better explain the legal situation and processes involved, our colleagues at Thames Valley Police have produced a couple of short films which explain the law and practice in this area in a way which is both concise and
easy to understand.

Thames Valley Police encampments video part 1: https://youtu.be/yWQGy3DNdEE

Thames Valley Police encampments video part 2: https://youtu.be/Z-Feh6mP2VE 

For further information, or to report an unauthorised encampment, please go to the County Council website for more detail.

 

Fairer funding plea to look after Buckinghamshire's roads

Buckinghamshire is supporting calls to the Government for a fairer slice of funding for roads, following national
research that shows London has the money to invest three times the amount compared to counties. And other
major cities aren't far behind.

Mark Shaw, Buckinghamshire County Council Deputy Leader and Transport Cabinet Member, said that while the authority was investing more than £20 million in roads in the current financial year, including halving the number of potholes needing repair last year*, it was still well below what he would like to see invested to bring all the county's roads up to scratch.

Buckinghamshire's Family Support Service – how we can help you

Anyone and everyone struggles with parenting from time to time and it can be tough being a kid too! Buckinghamshire's Family Support Service is here to help.

We have a network of 16 family centres across Buckinghamshire and new timetables for all of them have just been released. The new spring timetables run from Monday 6 January right through until Easter and there are different types of sessions at each centre.

“It’s great to see our new Family Centres offering such a wide range of support for local families. As people will see, we still offer lots of open sessions for parents and carers with babies and young children. But now we cater for families with children of all ages and our new timetables reflect this.

To find out more and to find out how to contact the service go to  www.bucksfamilyinfo.org/familysupport

New Year, New Buckinghamshire Council     

Preparations are well underway to create the new Buckinghamshire Council that will launch in April this year.

The new council will deliver the whole range of local services currently delivered by the five current councils as a single organisation.

For most people there will be no change to the day-to-day services they use, like bin collections, social care, libraries and parking. Getting in touch with their local council will be more straightforward because from 1 April residents will only need to contact one council for all of these services.

Repair plans for Ivinghoe canal bridge

An update on the Brownlow Bridge has just been published: The 200-year-old Ivinghoe Bridge, near Cheddington, is to be repaired and strengthened following a structural review.

The current weight restriction will stay in force until the strengthening works have been done.

Freight Strategy Officer Update

Progress update from our Freight Strategy officer, Graham Hillary:

“I must thank all the residents and businesses in the Ivinghoe Division for their patience and consideration during the Brownlow Bridge restriction period. It has been clear that some places have seen reduced Heavy Goods Vehicle flows whilst others have seen increased numbers. I appreciate the inconvenience experienced along with concerns about listed buildings, roads and the schools in the area.

The restriction was introduced as a result of a Canals and Rivers Trust survey that raised concerns about the weight bearing capacity of the bridge. For safety reasons it was critical to restrict use of the bridge by large goods vehicles while we worked on how to proceed. In order to protect the structure from further deterioration and to support the local businesses that employ hundreds of residents, approval was given to repair the bridge and maintain its role as part of the highway infrastructure. The role of the Brownlow Bridge moving forward will be as part of a wider area approach focused on delivering the adopted freight strategy.

The proposal is being finalised for internal Bucks County Council approval, after which it is expected to be subject to public consultation.

 

New contact points for new Buckinghamshire Council

People in Buckinghamshire will be able to visit an expanded range of locations for face to face information and advice on services of the new Buckinghamshire Council from April next year.

The Shadow Executive for the new council looked at how residents will be able to get on the spot access to council services through a network of local bases called Council Access Points, supporting the new unitary council to be close to its communities and making it simpler for people to get the information and support they need.

Buckinghamshire residents will be able to access information, advice and support on a range of topics near where they live or work. The Council Access Points (CAPs) will be based at the heart of local community life in existing buildings throughout Buckinghamshire.

New Buckinghamshire Council Budget Priorities Consultation running until 25 November, 2019
The major services that our councils provide in Buckinghamshire play a part in all of our lives in some way on a daily basis. Whether that’s through waste and recycling collections, roads and transport, education and learning, health and social care, planning where new housing goes or making use of our many parks, libraries and leisure centres. As we plan for the new Buckinghamshire Council, which will replace the county and district councils from April next year, it’s important that we take a look at our priorities and focus on the needs of all the people of Buckinghamshire and the future challenges we face as a county. As one council, there will be many opportunities for us to bring services together better and improve the lives of our residents, businesses and communities. 
We want to hear from you to help shape the new Buckinghamshire Council, tell us what you think we should be focusing on across all the services that you receive. 
You can complete the online survey using the link below
(open until 25 November) which will take less than 10 minutes. You can also drop into one of the main council offices or our main libraries to take part – these are Amersham, Aylesbury, Beaconsfield, Buckingham, Chesham, Hazlemere, High Wycombe, Marlow and Princes Risborough. We are ready and waiting to hear your views.

National Recycle Week

Fully supported by Buckinghamshire County Council, the national campaign aims to build on the growing awareness and importance of protecting our fragile environment by encouraging people to recycle more than ever before.
Latest figures show that around two-thirds of UK households are recycling more that they were a year ago. And across Buckinghamshire, that extra effort has meant the County Council now has the second best recycling figure across all county councils nationally at 56.6%.
"I'm so pleased Buckinghamshire is right up there with its recycling rates, but we can't rest on our laurels quite yet. There's over 43% still to go and that means everyone showing their commitment and playing their part”. 
For more details on recycling, please visit

Heathrow Expansion Consultation
