This is a LINK to the South Bucks Community and Wellbeing Plan 2017-2020 which has now been agreed by Council. The Plan provides a clear vision as to how South Bucks District Council will work in partnership to help improve local services and facilities over the next three years. Consultation with community groups, Chiltern and South Bucks Strategic Partnership, District Councillors and Town/Parish Councils took place last summer and since then the Plan has been developed and put through the Council’s formal decision-making process.


Plans have been submitted by Network Rail for the development of Iver Station which will create an entrance building on the south side of the station which is the main station approach along Wellesley Avenue. The intention is to provide a modern building with a bright and airy interior to replace the existing single-story building which due to its size has very limited facilities and is now in poor of condition being at the end of its useful life. The proposal includes lifts, in order to improve accessibility at the station in advance of the new Crossrail services stopping at Iver Station. Click on this link for further information.


Many residents have asked for an opportunity to air their concerns regarding roads and traffic use within the Ivers with the responsible authority.  The Ivers Parish Council is pleased to advise that representatives from Bucks County Council ( Highways ) have agreed to come to a public meeting on Wednesday 20th September 2017 at the Jubilee Pavilion, Iver Recreation Ground, High Street, Iver from 6:00pm to 7.30pm.
