Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - 7.16

Representation ID: 2543

OBJECT Mr and Mrs J.R. and S. Taylor

Summary:

VALP needs to recognise the significance of the East-West Rail to the Vale of Aylesbury with energy and commitment. It is a key infrastructure project and will have a significant impact and as such should be fully embraced. This is in contrast to the HS2 project which will destroy much of what we currently enjoy and offers nothing in return.

OBJECT Unknown (Mr Peter Bantham)

Summary:

Is a key infrastructure project and should be fully embraced, the current VALP does not put forward the appropriate strategy as a comprehensive plan would.

Representation ID: 2484

OBJECT Mr Damian Campbell

Summary:

The VALP gives scant regard to the East-West Rail project. This is surprising as this is indeed a key infrastructure project with excellent possibilities for the Vale. The current VALP does not exhibit the 'most appropriate strategy' as a properly "Justified" plan should.

Representation ID: 2360

OBJECT Mr Andrew Smith

Summary:

As in 3.15, New Settlements, the VALP does not appear to build on the importance of this key infrastructure investment. This is a weakness which must be corrected.

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Chris & Shirley Bull

OBJECT mR. Cameron Sinclair

Summary:

This project has the potential to bring far more benefits to the Vale than any other and it is wrong that the plan is not based around this growth opportunity.

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Peter & Jane Chilman

Summary:

Please also see my comments under 3.15 New Settlement.
The VALP does not seem to recognise the significance of East-West Rail to the Vale of Aylesbury. It is a major infrastructure project which should be embraced.

Representation ID: 1667

OBJECT Mr William Spear

Summary:

The East-West rail link is major infrastructure project which is not exploited to the full by VALP. Opportunities such as this are rare and the local plan must take full advantage of the economic and social benefits it will bring to the area.

OBJECT Mrs Ann Webbley

Summary:

To be an effective plan, based on sound thinking, this important piece of infra-structure should be thoroughly embedded in the thinking behind the plan. The Rail Link could be seen as providing a major development of transport strategy, and an opportunity for businesses and for commuters to reach new employment. This has not been integrated, and so I believe the VALP is not effective.

OBJECT Barbara White

Summary:

The Rail Link could be seen as providing a major development of the transport strategy, and an opportunity for businesses and for commuters to reach new employment. The significance of this opportunity does not seem to be recognised in the VALP as it is a key infrastructure project and should be fully considered. To be an effective plan this important piece of infra-structure should be thoroughly embedded in the thinking behind the plan. However it does not appear to be integrated and so I believe the VALP is not effective.

SUPPORT South Oxfordshire District Council (Mr. Ryan Hunt)

Summary:

Assessment of the potential corridors for the route of the Expressway are currently being
investigated by Highways England. The proposed Southern route option would likely run in close
proximity to Thame and Haddenham and would have a significant impact on the area. Should a more
northerly route be chosen, this could also have wider traffic and environmental impacts that would
need careful consideration. The councils have been co-operating on this matter for some time to
better understand the potential implications of the project.

OBJECT Mr Marcus Joy

Summary:

7.16 East-West Rail
The VALP does not recognise the significance of East-West Rail to the Vale with energy or commitment. The Chiltern Line is already running at high capacity during peak hours and rail strategy is vital to future development. It is a 'key' infrastructure project and should be fully embraced. The current VALP cannot be said to put forward the 'most appropriate strategy' as a Justified plan would.

OBJECT Mr Steven Hyams

Summary:

7.16 East-West Rail

How are we taking advantage of this? We seem to be largely ignoring the opportunity and operating in isolation.

Representation ID: 339

OBJECT Mr Chris Webbley

Summary:

My objection relates to the disconnect between the intentions set out in this paragraph and the absence of energy and foresight to make it happen. Throughout the draft VALP, the significance of E-W Rail (and the OX-CB Expressway) to the Vale is not recognised. If it is indeed a "key infrastructure project", what are the ideas and proposals that it will unlock?
