BCC ADMIT HIGH TRAFFIC LEVELS WILL GROW

May 3rd, 2019  |  Published in Action group letters, emails and messages, Highlights


Well, marks for honesty to Martin Tett, Leader of Bucks County Council who recently (1 May) bemoaned a delay to their bid for Government money for new roads. Mix 96 News quoted him as saying, “ “I’m very aware that the county…actually experiences very high levels of traffic.  I have to be frank, that’s going to grow…We are already delivering exceptionally high numbers of new housing developments in the county and that’s resulting in more and more traffic on our roads.”
There’s complete logic in that. Anyone who drives or takes a bus in the area knows this from personal experience. What is not logical is that BCCare basing their future plans for all the roads on a flawed Countywide traffic model using incomplete transport data. Despite HFAG’s persistent presentation of the evidence, Mr Tett’s transport team appear to hope that it will all be all right in the end. Maybe. But the public examination of the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan VALP has just gone into its second year with still no firm conclusion over the transport elements. So, maybe not.  
HFAG challenged the BCC bid in a recent letter to the Secretary of State for Housing.  We’re not claiming that we are the reason for the delay. But we hope it’s good for you to know that your action group are on the case.
