The formal application for gravel extraction by CEMEX from the fields to the north of North Park just along from the Sutton Lane junction has now been filed with Bucks County Council.  A new section of the website has been created to follow this as it will be quite a drawn out affair with a lot of ramifications.  Please go the CURRENT ISSUES section to learn more.  A public meeting for residents affected by this has been arranged for Wednesday October 26 at the Sports Club commencing at 7:30pm.

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.  The full document of the options and the reasoning behind them can be found on the SBDC website as an agenda item for the 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.  Iver Parish Council’s views on this are covered in their recent PRESS RELEASE.  A briefing meeting for Richings Park is likely to be scheduled for November.

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 aware 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 second public drop-in consultation has been organised by Slough on October 27th 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.

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:
