Site keeps track of new de­vel­op­ments

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A NEW web­site to keep peo­ple in­formed on de­vel­op­ment projects in Bucks has been launched.

Buck­ing­hamshire Ad­van­tage, which acts as a de­vel­op­ment arm of Buck­ing­hamshire Thames Val­ley Lo­cal En­ter­prise Part­ner­ship (BTVLEP), has an­nounced the launch of its new web­site, which aims to pro­vide lat­est in­for­ma­tion on key de­vel­op­ment projects across Buck­ing­hamshire.

Buck­ing­hamshire Ad­van­tage pro­motes and de­liv­ers cap­i­tal projects help­ing Buck­ing­hamshire’s econ­omy de­velop sus­tain­ably, en­sures lo­cal growth funds are in­vested to max­i­mum ef­fect, iden­ti­fies new op­por­tu­ni­ties and re­moves bar­ri­ers to sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Buck­ing­hamshire Ad­van­tage Richard Har­ring­ton said: “Buck­ing­hamshire Ad­van­tage brings pro­ject man­age­ment ex­per­tise to the de­liv­ery of BTVLEP cap­i­tal pro­gramme, by co­or­di­nat­ing the de­liv­ery of trans­port, plan­ning, hous­ing and other projects, in the pur­suit of shared ob­jec­tives with part­ner or­gan­i­sa­tions. The aim of this new web­site is to pro­vide an overview of de­vel­op­ment ac­tiv­i­ties as well as lat­est in­for­ma­tion and up­dates.”

In de­liv­er­ing BTVLEP’s work pro­gramme, Buck­ing­hamshire Ad­van­tage works closely with part­ner or­gan­i­sa­tions Chiltern District Coun­cil, South Bucks District Coun­cil, Wy­combe District Coun­cil, Ayles­bury Vale District Coun­cil, Bucks County Coun­cil and Bucks Busi­ness First.

In July 2013, the BTVLEP Board agreed that it would es­tab­lish a de­liv­ery mech­a­nism to en­able it to de­liver on the LEP’s be­half.

With the ex­is­tence of a legacy or­gan­i­sa­tion – Ayles­bury Vale Ad­van­tage (AVA) in the north of Buck­ing­hamshire – it was pro­posed that this could be achieved by ad­mit­ting new mem­bers to AVA.

In April 2014, AVA was re-launched as Buck­ing­hamshire Ad­van­tage as the de­liv­ery ve­hi­cle for the whole of Buck­ing­hamshire.

In com­par­i­son with the gov­er­nance ar­range­ments for most LEPs, plac­ing Buck­ing­hamshire Ad­van­tage at the heart of the BTVLEP de­liv­ery model is an in­no­va­tive ar­range­ment.
