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.

      raised by the PC, it was also suggested that ongoing maintenance and Insurance could be an issue.

      A Wildflower garden was approved as this would require very little upkeep.

      It was also proposed that direction signage to the Recreation Ground would be a good idea - clerk to look into.

      confirmed that this is WI’s responsibility - clerk to contact a member of the WI. Other concerns were also raised

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

19/129. BCC Report: – Cllr. Wight.

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.

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

The Airport Expansion Consultation runs from 18th June until 13th September 2019 and gives residents the opportunity to provide feedback on Heathrow’s proposals for the future layout of the airport, including the new runway and other airport infrastructure such as terminals and road access.

Residents will also be able to have a say on plans to manage the environmental impacts of expansion, including a proposed Heathrow Ultra Low Emissions Zone, Heathrow Vehicle Access Charge and a proposed 6.5-hour ban on scheduled night flights.

The expansion at Heathrow may have knock-on effects for air traffic in our area coming into Luton airport, so please do have a look at the plans if you wish to express a view.

VAHT and BCC Grass Cutting Discussions      

The Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust (VAHT) had been cutting swathes of grass verges in and around the Aylesbury Vale area historically for quite some time. However, it was recently decided that as some of the grass areas were found to belong to Bucks County Council, VAHT took the decision to cease cutting immediately and without having first informed BCC of this decision. This has resulted in overgrown grass in many areas around the whole of Aylesbury Vale, as BCC has only recently been informed of this decision and therefore was unable to allocate budget to undertake any additional grass cutting. Discussions are now ongoing between BCC and VAHT as to how to resolve this issue.

 

The Brownlow Bridge                

The TTRO is now in place on the Brownlow Bridge in Ivinghoe which prohibits vehicles over 18 tones from using the bridge. While this has been well publicized locally and parish councils are all informed of this, sadly some local hauliers are continuing to use the bridge despite the clear signage. Ivinghoe Parish Council are monitoring this situation with cooperation from the residents of Horton as well and Thames Valley Police have been informed of the situation.

 

Planning applications CM/0017/19 and CM/0018/19

These planning applications are for additional industrial waste processing of 25,000 tonnes and 87,500 tonnes
respectively per annum on the Marsworth/Cheddington Airfield Industrial Estate and are currently open for comment
from members of the public.

 

Local Government Reorganisation

The final piece of legislation that seals the deal for a new unitary authority was passed by government on 24 May. For the people and businesses of Buckinghamshire, this will mean one, brand new council from April 2020, delivering all local government services. The new council will replace the current five councils – Aylesbury Vale District Council, Buckinghamshire County Council, Chiltern District Council, South Bucks District Council and Wycombe District Council - which will cease to exist on 31 March 2020.

Resident Survey

Local people are being asked for their views on Buckinghamshire’s highways and transport services – from the condition of roads and footpaths to the quality of cycling facilities. Their answers will be compared with the views of other members of the public across England and Scotland, thanks to the National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction Survey.

Time to Change

Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet people are still afraid to talk about it. Time to Talk Day encourages everyone to talk about mental health.  Having conversations about mental health helps break down stereotypes, improve relationships, aid recovery and take the stigma out of something that affects us all.

The Brownlow Bridge
TfB met last week with the Deputy Cabinet Member for Transport, Paul Irwin, to discuss the recommendation by Canal and River Trust of an 18 tonne weight limit on the Brownlow Bridge. At that meeting it was decided to place a Temporary TRO on the bridge with a weight limit of 18 tonnes for approximately six months. A risk-based assessment will be undertaken during that period to take account of any traffic impacts as a result of this limit and, specifically, which alternate routes might be used for vehicles over 18 tonnes instead.

Cllr. Jenkins  – Unitary Update

Following a recent meeting between the four District Leaders and Bucks County Council leader. Regardless of the final decision by the Secretary of State on unitary it's obvious there'll need to be some close working between all authorities so that when it happens they can hit the ground running when that decision is made. The timescale could be tight and any work they can do beforehand will put the new organisation in a much stronger position to align services. There was a consensus that, whichever proposal is adopted, this new local authority must endeavour to provide value for money to our residents.

Cllr.Town

The Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust (VAHT) has introduced a new £250,000 per year community investment grant system called Thriving Communities Fund. It will not replace the New Homes Bonus scheme.

The fund has three categories:

Cat A - Springboard Grant up to £300

Cat B - Micro Grant for small projects up to £1,000

Cat C - Project Grant for larger projects such as capital expenditure, or core running costs up to £10,000

 

18/9. BCC Report: – Cllr. Wight

Single Unitary for Buckinghamshire

Should the government take a final decision to implement a single unitary - the result would be a brand new council to replace the existing five district and county councils across Buckinghamshire. An Implementation Executive (made up of elected members from each of the existing five councils) would be established to work together to lead the preparations for the new council and make decisions about future arrangements.
 

Potholes and Damaged Road Surfaces

At the recent Full Council meeting Buckinghamshire County Council voted to release £1.234m of County Council reserves to supplement existing funding to provide for predominately high quality plane and patch type repairs.
This will be in addition to the £1.1 m of funding for pothole repairs which has been given to Bucks County Council by the national government.

 

Questions to the Cabinet Member for Transportation

My Question on Freight Strategy to Cabinet Member from his Report to Full Council, as taken from the public record on the Bucks County Council website.

 

Marsworth Traffic Lights

Due to a resident expressing concern about the position of the secondary traffic light at the Marsworth bridge after the lights were recently replaced, I have raised this issue with TfB and am awaiting their response.

 

National Paralympic Heritage Trust Chairman and Trustee Recruitment

The NPHT is looking to appoint up to three independent Trustees, ideally with an understanding of, and access

to, important networks or contacts in the sport and/or heritage sectors, who are also committed to NPHT aims

and values, and to equality and diversity.

 

Anaerobic Digester

Over the last month the owners of the Westcott facility have been in contact with BCC about their intention to sell this facility. BCC only recently had it confirmed that it has been sold to Olleco, who already operate a similar facility next to the Arla factory just off the A41. Officers at Buckinghamshire County Council have since held a meeting with Olleco and from their early conversations it seems that to date there are no intentions to close the facility at Westcott.  


Road works on Cooks Wharf, Cheddington

There will be a road closure on High Street, Cheddington some time between 9th April and 13th July 2018 for the distance from the 30mph sign to Cooks Wharf.  This will affect traffic on Cheddington High Street, Mentmore Road, Long Marston Road, Cheddington Lane, Tring Road, Wingrave Road, Lower Icknield Way, Cheddington Road and vice versa. Diversions will be in place.

17/69. BCC Report: – Cllr. Wight  
Freight Strategy Update

I was delighted to have been able to spend a morning recently with Sarah Gibson, from BCC’s Freight Strategy team, along with Stephen Lott and Claire Bamber to see how effective the sentinel traffic monitor is as we watched the rush hour traffic into Ivinghoe. Sarah noted the number of HGVs into the village and afterwards we both went to Horton via the Brownlow Bridge to examine road conditions there.  As one of the key officers who will be helping to formulate the Freight Strategy, Sarah is keen to ensure that she has a full understanding of road conditions along the B488 and B489.

 

Lower End Jet patching

I am very happy to report that I have commissioned jet patching for the section of road from Church Farm Lane to the Red Lion canal Bridge (Lower End) out of my additional TfB councillor funding which has only just been made available to us. It is currently being surveyed by the LAT, Rob Anderson, and he has confirmed that it will be jet patched within the next few months. I will be passing on a schedule for the repair once I know it, as it would be helpful if residents could be informed so that they are able to move their vehicles off the roads for the repair date, since otherwise the repairs may end up incomplete. Apparently, this has been something of a problem in the past during jet patching repairs.


 

 

Pitstone Report of aircraft noise/jet fuel smell
We had one report of aircraft noise and the smell of jet fuel from a Pitstone resident and his wife over the past few weeks.  If this is noticed and/or a problem for other residents, please let me know as we are monitoring it to see if it is a recurring issue.

although the Government has quite a lot of important matters on its agenda and the creation of new unitaries

may not be top of the list.

Size of Marsworth Village, Cllr. Jenkins will raise this issue again to redesignate it as a small village rather than medium.

Due to the general election, the last county council meeting on 18 May was held during Purdah. Consequently, there was a limited session as no political debates were able to take place.  The next county council meeting will take place on 13 July and will be webcast.

 

Road Conditions Since many residents have already contacted me regarding road conditions, potholes, and repairs in their local area, I will be inspecting all villages in Ivinghoe Division with our BCC local area technician personally over the next few weeks. 

 

Marsworth Airfield

The Development Control hearing to discuss the retrospective planning application for a change from empty skip storage to waste processing on the Marsworth Airfield site is scheduled for 19th June.   The additional HGV and large skip lorry vehicle movements which have already resulted from this change is naturally of great concern across the villages, and objections and comments have now been submitted.  I hope to be able to speak at that hearing on behalf of residents, and will report back as soon as any decision has been taken.

 

Freight Strategy

Since many residents have also expressed concerns in general at the increasing number of HGVs and lorries associated with housing construction and industry across our local area, BCC has refreshed its Freight Strategy initiatives and are in consultation with the communities to develop an effective strategy which will ensure a balance between industry needs and resident concerns.  Paul Irwin, Deputy Cabinet Member for Transportation, is heading up the initiatives, and a full public consultation is planned for the coming months. 

 

Meet and Greet Sessions

I am hoping to hold some Meet and Greet drop-in sessions in the autumn so that residents can come to have a chat about anything they might want to discuss, or simply pop in to meet me and your district councillors while having a cup of tea and a biscuit.  The dates and locations for these sessions will be forthcoming.

17/8. Matters Arising

a)   Light in Church Lane – Cllr. Brake to follow up progress again with D Pitcock.

b)   Marston to Pitstone Footpath - Cllr D Brown attended recent meeting, funding concerns were raised re costs of Phone line/Electrical cabling and water mains, a contingency fund of 40% is recommended.
- Suggested Pitstone Council should have funds.
- Alan Purchase in charge of tenders to contact BCC re Vat issues.
- Tender date – When the start of work would commence i.e. hedge clearance to be carried out and this can only be done at certain times of year. A Further meeting to be held on 21st July 2017 Members of Marsworth Parish Council required to attend.
- District Councillor Derek Town suggested the Public Works Loan Board for projects, which may help Marsworth PC to pay for the VAT. However, the PC already has outstanding loans so this will not be possible.
- Cllr Town also advised that there is a New Homes Bonus payment coming that could be substantial. The PC are advised to keep AVDC updated with progress and any funding requirements, and also to put in for the contingency now.

17/10. AVDC Report:

Cllr. Jenkins –

a)   Government White Paper issued earlier in the year is still being considered.

b)   There are concerns that Neighbourhood Plans are expensive to produce and are then not always adhered to, (Marsworth does not have a Neighbourhood Plan). It was discussed and agreed MPC could not afford to implement as no funds are currently available. The question was raised:- is it necessary as much of Marsworth is mainly protected under ‘conservation area’.

c)   Definition of small village to medium village – Cllr. GM to look into re evaluation again as no response has been received from the previous objection raised.

d)   A petition is circulating to change the gentlemen’s agreement that major parties will not stand against Speaker John Bercow, which voters claim this denies them the right to a democratic vote. Cllr Town reminded us that the Speaker has three deputies with the same agreement in their respective constituencies.

e)   Cllr. Town advised that issues continue with regard to the Waste King operation at the airfield. Bucks County Council are dealing with reports of a feint but strange smell in the air described as maybe burning rubber or polystyrene, Is product being burnt rather than going to landfill – AVDC responsibility.

Waste Processing at Cheddington/Marsworth old airfield site.

AVDC Planning Application Consultation 17/01064/ACC

The item in italics below is an extract from AVDC Planning Enforcement bulletin for November 2016.

This was the subject of a significant appeal a number of years ago (10 years !) for a similar installation that was beyond the existing planning conditions for the Cheddington/Marsworth airfield site. The subsequent outcome was against the waste operator (not Waste King but a now defunct company called Cairns).

This application makes no reference to lorry movements per day or any local employment prospects. The previous application was refused and the subsequent appeal dismissed. Cheddington PC investigations to support the respective objections to this development identified significant possible traffic movements made up of skip lorries and very large mineral trucks delivering waste from north London and beyond for processing.

16/00427/CON3 PITSTONE And CHEDDINGTON WARD

Alleged unauthorised:

1) Installation of a Picking station/trommel/screener

2) Storage of large amounts of waste

3) Skip lorries/cage vehicles entering site during 0630hrs-1900hrs 6 days a week including bank holidays

4) Waste equipment used everyday including Saturdays

Waste King Limited Unit 25 Marsworth Airfield North Site Cheddington Lane Marsworth Buckinghamshire

At present information is minimal but it does appear Waste King intend to establish a facility/hub to concentrate, process and re-distribute construction and demolition materials.  The consequences of this  could be experienced by local villages as an increase in lorry movements across all roads and lanes; possibly airborne pollution as dust from the ‘trommel’ plant; potential water pollution to the brook that flows along the eastern site boundary (is this another problem for Thames Water ?). The fact is, as we all are aware,  the roads in this district were never built for such HGV traffic, the condition re potholes is confirmation already to what is expected to become worse.
