Your views are needed for plan
Iver project to safeguard the future
NEIGHBOURS are set to be asked their views on the future of their village so that a plan for the area can be drawn up.
After this year’s election, Iver Parish Council set up a working group to identify the planning considerations which affect the area the most, with the idea of including them in a local plan which is being drawn up by South Bucks District Council.
Once up and running, the plan will demonstrate the most important priorities for the area, highlighting what should be protected and what sort of development is appropriate.
It is aimed at local authorities power giving more against development in the area, and is designed to safeguard it in the future so that there is more protection.
Iver’s working group has come up with issues including the protection of the green belt, limiting HGVs travelling through the village centre, putting a relief road in place around Iver to protect the area from traffic and regenerating the High Street.
A public meeting is now set to take place so that individuals and organisations can make their views known and suggest other potential priorities to be included in the plan.
Parish council chairman Wendy Matthews said: “It’s important that as many people as possible get involved with this to give an idea of what is important Iver.
“We know that things like the amount of HGVs in the village centre, and putting in a relief road are incredibly important to people here, and we will be including those.
“Protecting the area’s green belt is very important to people as well.”
The meeting is set to take place on Wednesday July 22 at 10am at the Jubilee Pavilion in Iver.
Anyone who cannot attend, but who would like to make any comments, is asked to send them to the parish clerk by emailing clerk@ iverparishcouncil.gov.uk.
