Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - 4.16

Representation ID: 2715

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Roger & Reidunn Green

Summary:

ATS modeling criticized by BCC as poorly planned. Without sound data an effective solution is impossible.
The proposed plan does not adequately address the inevitable increase in volume of traffic not prevent coalescence of communities. It is poorly prepared and completely ineffective.

Representation ID: 2660

OBJECT Mr Peter Hoare

Summary:

4.16 does not provide effective solutions or is totally inadequate for the development proposals.

Representation ID: 2540

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

Summary:

We note from your "Aylesbury Transport Improvements Plan" that some of the roads to the north and west are described as "inspirational". We are not sure what this means, however we believe that since they are part of the Aylesbury ring road they should be considered essential and constructed sooner rather that later and preferably before the planned additional houses are constructed. We note that the M25 did not have parts that were left out and described as inspirational when it was built.

Representation ID: 2528

OBJECT Aylesbury Society (Mr Keith Robinson)

Summary:

The three transport studies in the supporting evidence demonstrate that the following three objective will not be achieved; minimising the impact of future growth on traffic levels, congestion and air quality, improving journey time reliability and improving access and movement in the town centre.

Representation ID: 2517

OBJECT Mr & Mrs John & Christine Raines

Summary:

Pie in the sky transport plan. I would like something to be more realistic and happen in my lifetime, a proper plan made by current councillors and not left
to be put right by our councillors of the future which by that time will be too late.

Representation ID: 2504

OBJECT Unknown (Mr Peter Bantham)

Summary:

The "orbital strategy" is only aspirational, it needs to be an actual positive plan and be implemented

Representation ID: 2477

OBJECT Mr Damian Campbell

Summary:

1) The modelling used by ATS is flawed. It has even been criticised by BCC's own Transport Consultants AECOM. Again the plan is not a reasonable basis to proceed as even basic evidence required for reasonable discussion and debate is missing.
2) Most of the "Orbital strategy" are described as "Aspirational". This means they will not happen until at least the next plan in 2034 and beyond. As a result, VALP can therefore not be considered either adequately prepared nor effective.

Representation ID: 2353

OBJECT Mr Andrew Smith

Summary:

This is based on an outdated model, criticised by the consultants advising the Hampden Fields Action Group and also by Bucks CC's transport consultants. I understand that is based on highly challengeable evidence. Some of the assumptions are described as "aspirational" - hardly encouraging since I understand that this is code for "not happening before 2034"!

Representation ID: 2316

OBJECT South West Milton Keynes Consortium represented by Carter Jonas - Associate SWMK Consortium (Mr Brian Flynn)

Summary:

a substantial number of strategic allocations are proposed around Aylesbury, and combined these developments represent more than half of the housing target in PSVALP. We consider that this is a risky strategy which relies heavily on housing delivery at one settlement. We suggest that a detailed and robust assessment of housing delivery assumptions and the timetable for the delivery of key associated infrastructure projects is undertaken to demonstrate that strategic allocations at Aylesbury Garden Town can be delivered in accordance with the predicted timetable as set out in the VALP Housing Land Supply Soundness document.

Representation ID: 2256

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Chris & Shirley Bull

Summary:

The ATS is based on flawed modelling, criticised by BCC's own Transport Consultants AECOM. A robust evidence base is required. Key parts of the "orbital strategy" are "aspirational" which means they will not happen until at least the next plan in 2034 and beyond, if at all. Firm plans need to be developed before the current ATS is adopted to ensure that it is effective.

Representation ID: 2241

OBJECT Mrs Jane Chilman

Summary:

The ATS is flawed. It is based on flawed modelling which has been criticised by Bucks County
Council's own transport Consultants AECOM. Strategic parts of the "orbital road" are "aspirational"
which means they will not be constructed at least until the next plan in 2034 and beyond. It is not
acceptable to approve an incomplete plan with these deficiencies that may or may not be addressed
in the future. As a result of the flawed Strategy the plan will affect the local economy.

Representation ID: 2231

OBJECT Melvyn Gibbons

Summary:

Major parts of the orbital strategy are aspirational and therefore should not form the basis for transport modelling when they may not happen for years if at all. Therefore this part of the plan cannot be effective.

OBJECT Ether Solutions (Mr David Martin)

Summary:

1) The ATS is based on flawed modelling, criticised by BCC's own Transport Consultants AECOM. This is not sound because a robust evidence base is missing.
2) Key parts of the "orbital strategy" are "aspirational" which means they will not happen until at least the next plan in 2034 and beyond. The Plan is therefore neither Positively Prepared nor Effective.

Representation ID: 1925

OBJECT mR. Cameron Sinclair

Summary:

This seems to be based on an assumption that new inhabitants will not be commuting to London, or driving to work elsewhere. The existing new developments at Aylesbury Vale Parkway have already placed the rail services under strain at peak times (a seat is a rare commodity from Great Missenden on some trains and an impossibility thereafter) and the traffic on surrounding roads has noticeably increased. This problem will only be exacerbated with new settlements without new infrastructure.

Representation ID: 1876

OBJECT Unknown (Mr Paul Pelling)

Summary:

- the orbital strategy appears to be based on future aspirations. This makes it very non-committal, ineffective and irrelevant. Accordingly, this should necessitate appropriate and meaningful revisions to the Plan for its alignment with housing policy to be taken seriously.

More details about Rep ID: 1876

Representation ID: 1859

OBJECT Ms Maureen Simmons

Summary:

The ATS is based upon flawed modelling which has been criticised by BCC's own transport consultants. This means that a key part of evidence supporting the Plan is compromised.
Key parts of the "orbital strategy" are aspiration only. This means that these key parts will not be in place until after 2030. The Plan has not been effectively prepared in this area.

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Peter & Jane Chilman

Summary:

The ATS is flawed. It is based on flawed modelling which has been criticised by Bucks County Council's own transport Consultants AECOM. Strategic parts of the "orbital road" are "aspirational" which means they will not be constructed at least until the next plan in 2034 and beyond.

Representation ID: 1646

OBJECT Mrs Ann Webbley

Summary:

A whole transport strategy needs a robust, sound evidence base. This is not used in the VALP, so I believe the transport strategy is neither sound nor effective.

More details about Rep ID: 1646

Representation ID: 1628

OBJECT W K Boxhall

Summary:

The models used are too old and have already been criticised by Transport consultants AECOM. This model needs to be updated in the light of previous growth and significant transport changes.

The plan is not all embracing and smacks of opportunism for funding from HS2 developments for one tiny route which yet again would create further traffic problems.

More details about Rep ID: 1628

Representation ID: 1553

OBJECT Barbara White

Summary:

The whole Aylesbury Transport Strategy (ATS) does not appear to be robust and based on sound evidence. Key roads of the supposed "orbital strategy" are aspirational. A fact that is admitted in the VALP. How can the ATS be a sound proposal when there are serious flaws in the basic data on which it is based? Thus I believe the ATS is neither sound nor effective and is not fit for purpose.

Representation ID: 1540

OBJECT Mr Richard Wise

Summary:

4.16 Aylesbury Transport Strategy
This ATS is based on flawed modelling.
The current traffic levels and congestion in and around Aylesbury and not only unacceptable but are also unsustainable. The orbital strategy plan will probably not happen for at least another 17 years during which time the surrounding villages will be swamped with increased traffic levels.
The plan is therefore neither positively prepared nor effective.

OBJECT Mr Marcus Joy

Summary:

4.16 Aylesbury Transport Strategy ATS
The ATS is based on flawed modelling, criticised by BCC's own Transport Consultants AECOM. How can you use an industry accredited consultancy to advise you and then ignore what they say? This particular point is of grave concern as it infers incompetence.

Representation ID: 1410

OBJECT Mr Steven Hyams

Summary:

4.16 Aylesbury Transport Strategy ATS

ATS is not credible, based on flawed modelling, criiticised by AECOM (working for BCC). The orbital strategy has no concrete and immediate action. By the time it is fully implemented (if ever) it will have already failed the population for decades.

Representation ID: 1403

OBJECT Mrs Claudia Belardo

Summary:

4.16-4.17
The proposed transport strategy has not been finalised and even confirmed as viable. Consequently, and by the Council's own admission that want to raise funds to build any new roads by building houses first which is, in itself, a self-defeating objective.

Specifically thinking about Stoke Mandeville - the latest new road proposal for this village effectively moves the bulk of traffic from one road to another and with the increase in housing in the vicinity there has been nothing good in place to alleviate the current problem nor the exasperation which will inevitably occur as a result of yet more houses. This can currently be seen in the Berryfields and Buckingham Park estates.

Representation ID: 1382

OBJECT Mr Keith Waterman

Summary:

1) The ATS is based on flawed modelling, criticised by BCC's own Transport Consultants AECOM. This is not sound because a robust evidence base is missing.
2) Key parts of the "orbital strategy" are "aspirational" which means they will probably not happen and certainly not before the next plan in 2034. This issue needs to be addressed now before more development is planned or sanctioned. The Plan is therefore neither Positively Prepared nor Effective.

Summary:

Object, 4.16

4.16:
The latest ATS is way off of what's required, various council departments at odds with each other. The evidence of the last few years of "expert" advice is clear to see as one experiences long delays caused by this advice.

OBJECT Mr R Horton

Summary:

The Aylesbury Transport Strategy has been based on flawed modelling, which has been criticised by Bucks County Councils own transport consultant AECOM. BCC have stated there will not be a problem on the Road Network with the increase of vehicles from all the planned developments. The road network is struggling to cope now and Aylesbury will suffer gridlock well before 2034. Who do we believe!!

Representation ID: 609

OBJECT Mr Trevor Toms

Summary:

The proposed transport strategy is naive and ill-considered.
With a significant majority of transport attempting to bypass Aylesbury, the proposal does not offer any solution for through traffic. The town is a crossroads for the A41, A413 and A418 and no bypass that connects these to allow for a propery bypass.
The result of this proposal, along with the addition of many thousands of houses will create a traffic nightmare.
Existing road planning to accommodate Arla has increased congestion dramatically - and that is only one enterprise.

OBJECT Hampden Fields Action Group (Dr Glynn White)

Summary:

The ATS is flawed. It is based on flawed modelling which is criticised by BCC's own Transport Consultants AECOM. Key parts of the "orbital strategy" are "aspirational" which means they will not happen until at least the next plan in 2034 and beyond. It is simply not credible to approve a partial plan on the basis that we "have to start somewhere" when it will have known deficiencies that will not be addressed for many decades.

OBJECT Mr Phil Yerby

Summary:

The ATS is flawed. It is based on flawed modelling which is criticised by BCC's own Transport Consultants Aecom.
Key parts of the orbital strategy are aspirational which means they will not happen until at leas the next plan in 2034 and beyond.
