Your views are needed for plan

Iver pro­ject to safe­guard the fu­ture

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS - By Jack Abell jack.abell@trin­i­tymir­

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@ iver­parish­coun­
