NEWS FLASHES

Following the consultation earlier this year about green belt areas which could be developed to provide housing and employment, South Bucks have now refined their possible choices to a short list.  There will be a further consultation on each of the preferred options later this year but, in the meantime Iver Parish Council will be holding a public meeting in Iver Village Hall on Monday October 3rd at 7:30pm to explain the options and also give some feedback on the traffic monitoring exercise that is being conducted.  The full document of the options and the reasoning behind them can be found on the SBDC website as an agenda item for the forthcoming Overview and Scrutiny Committee meeting on October 3rd.   This is a very large file but an extract that only covers Richings Park can be read HERE.


We now receive a weekly briefing digest of airport related matters, in particular, the progress or lack of it in making a decision on a 3rd runway.  The latest version can be found HERE.

By now everyone will be ware of the traffic chaos that is arising from the temporary closure of Chequers Railway Bridge on Market Lane.  To supplement the stories, pictures and videos that are being collated to attack Network Rail’s plans for a permanent closure a petition has been organised which can be found HERE.  Slough Borough Council have also created an on-line questionnaire on the subject which can be reached HERE.  A public drop-in consultation has been organised by Slough on September 29th from 4pm to 8pm at Christ The Worker Church in Parlaunt Road, Langley.  We are expecting representatives from Bucks County Council to be there as well.


HACAN have published their latest newsletter on the state of play at Heathrow.  This can be found in the Heathrow Section of the website.


The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) has noticed an increase in reports of fraudsters placing fake letter boxes on residential properties in an attempt to harvest the mail. Residents are sometimes unaware of the fake letterbox as the fraudsters will periodically remove the item, which may leave notable markings. The mail is then used to open various lines of credit with financial providers in the name of the innocent resident.


On June 1st Bucks CC informed the Parish Council that parking schemes are no longer a Bucks priority and therefore if we want to put forward any such schemes for LAF funding for 2017/18 we will have to find 50% matched funding from somewhere else. This will make it difficult to get any parking scheme for Richings Park off the ground unless we get a car park or another project that will help pay for it.


Small Black Flies Infestation: Update from South Bucks Environmental Health Officer ( Adrian Dillon ) on May 4th 2016

From the evidence gathered by SBDC and Slough over the last few years we have managed to persuade Slough to serve an abatement notice on Thames Water seeking to prevent a recurring statutory fly nuisance. This is the first step in getting a longer term more sustainable resolution.  The team managed to confirm with TW consultants that there were no secondary sources and that TW had failed to maintain the fly screens at the site which coupled with the warm weather triggered an event a few weeks ago.

We have now added a link in the Roads and Pavements page in the Current Issues Section of the website that will allow you to see problems that have been reported to the relevant council.

Heathrow Action Campaign Against Noise have started a petition to the Secretary of State.  You can access this petition by clicking on this link:
