Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - 4.17

Representation ID: 2661

OBJECT Mr Peter Hoare

Summary:

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

Representation ID: 2520

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Christine and Dennis Clarke

Summary:

Our MP David Lidington has already commented that he does not want Aylesbury to be known as a gridlock town. Well my view is that between 7.30 a.m. and 9.30 am and also between 3.00 p.m. and 6.30 p.m. on the Tring and Wendover roads in and out of Aylesbury this is already the situation. Building on such a scale in one location between these two major routes in and out of Aylesbury is only going to exacerbate the traffic problems we are already experiencing in this location and no amount of orbital or link roads is going to help.

Representation ID: 2478

OBJECT Mr Damian Campbell

Summary:

The "Aspirational" ring roads will not take traffic away from the town centre. Many of the people forming families in the 16,000 extra houses around Aylesbury will have commuting and educational travel needs which will have a very detrimental effect on the transport system. As a result of the lack of evidence justifying the proposals, VALP issues are neither objectively assessed nor show any signs of effectively meeting residents requirements.

Representation ID: 2317

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: 2257

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Chris & Shirley Bull

Summary:

The orbital roads are unlikely to reduce traffic in the town centre in any meaningful way, as 16,000 extra houses around Aylesbury will have a severe impact on the transport system. Since a good evidence base is lacking in the ATS, any suggested interventions are neither objectively assessed, nor can be effective.

Representation ID: 2242

OBJECT Mrs Jane Chilman

Summary:

There has been insufficient data collection done to back up the claim that the "Orbital "roads will
take away traffic from the town centre in any meaningful way to ensure that the construction of
16,000 houses around Aylesbury does not impact on the transport system. As the evidence is lacking
and as in AVDC's own words the "Orbital" roads are in large part aspirational the "Orbital" road
proposal has no credibility.

Representation ID: 2232

OBJECT Melvyn Gibbons

Summary:

The currently planned link roads are very unlikely to take traffic away from the town centre and the addition of a further 16,000 houses will further add to the traffic problems and again this part of the plan is not effective.

Representation ID: 2194

OBJECT Ether Solutions (Mr David Martin)

Summary:

The orbital roads need to be consider in terms of the traffic flows from the overall Oxford / Milton Keynes / Cambridge development arc. Traffic to and from Aylesbury will be impacted. The housing developments in Aylesbury that have already been approved are now starting to make traffic on existing roads terrible and the ideas for new roads are far too limited and not resourced for future capacity.

Representation ID: 2169

OBJECT Michelle Hughes

Summary:

The orbital roads are unlikely to take traffic away from the town centre in any meaningful way. 16,000 extra houses around Aylesbury will have a severe impact on the transport system. Because the evidence base is lacking, the interventions are neither objectively assessed, based on sound evidence, nor Effective.

Representation ID: 1989

OBJECT Mrs Stephanie Schneider

Summary:

The 16,000 new houses planned around Aylesbury will have a very severe impact on the transport system (which is already often gridlocked) and the orbital roads will not take enough of the traffic away from the town centre. Also, much of the orbital route strategy is aspirational and so they will not be built for years, if at all. This policy is not effective.

Representation ID: 1927

OBJECT mR. Cameron Sinclair

Summary:

A recent study commissioned by the CPRE found that new roads do nothing to alleviate existing problems but actually increase traffic. This plan reflects a backwards process - allowing housing to be built without first creating coherent and sustainable infrastructure.

Representation ID: 1877

OBJECT Unknown (Mr Paul Pelling)

Summary:

what evidence exists that orbital roads will deal with both existing and the additional congestion that will be created? Anything based on speculation cannot be realistically relied upon when determining if the housing will be supported adequately.

More details about Rep ID: 1877

Representation ID: 1860

OBJECT Ms Maureen Simmons

Summary:

The orbital roads are not likely to reduce the traffic from impacting the town centre. 16,000 additional houses around Aylesbury will severely impact the transport system. Because the evidential base is not in place, the interventions have not been objectively assessed. This part of the Plan is not effective.

Representation ID: 1850

SUPPORT The Hampden Fields Consortium represented by Barton Willmore (Mr Mark Owen)

Summary:

the Hampden Fields proposals have received the support from Members at the
Council, which will not only assist AVDC in meeting its proposed housing requirement (27,400 new
homes) in the period to 2033 but will also make a substantial contribution to the Council's five year
land supply. The proposals include the delivery of a full dual carriageway (the 'Southern Link Road')
which will make a significant contribution to the wider strategic proposals of a future Aylesbury
outer ring road (as identified at paragraph 4.17 of the Proposed Submission VALP).

There has been insufficient data collection done to back up the claim that the "Orbital "roads will take away traffic from the town centre in any meaningful way to ensure that the construction of 16,000 houses around Aylesbury does not impact on the transport system. As the evidence is lacking and as in AVDC's own words the "Orbital" roads are in large part aspirational the "Orbital" road proposal has no credibility.

Representation ID: 1660

OBJECT Mr William Spear

Summary:

The impact of 16,000 extra houses in reality means at least 30,000 extra vehicles which will have a catastrophic impact on the town's transport system. As mentioned in 4.14 the additional traffic will gridlock both the town centre and the main feeder roads (A41, A413, and A418) into and out of the town on a daily basis. This will lead to drivers seeking alternative routes and creating unsafe 'rat-runs' through residential housing areas. Likewise, there is little evidence to confirm the planned orbital routes will satisfactorily absorb the additional traffic and thus prevent the mayhem described above.

Representation ID: 1647

OBJECT Mrs Ann Webbley

Summary:

The idea of a ring-road is seductive, but its effectiveness needs to be assessed using traffic research that is up- to date, and sound. In particular, it is hard to say that a new set of roads will be effective, if it does not take account of the traffic generated by the new housing being used to fund the eventual new roads. This part of the plan lacks the thoroughness I look for in a sound plan, and I feel these errors mean this section cannot be justified.

Representation ID: 1630

OBJECT W K Boxhall

Summary:

Interventions including outer link roads.




16000 extra houses around Aylesbury will have a severe impact on the transport system and any orbital roads are likely to compound them.

Representation ID: 1584

OBJECT Wendover Parish Council (Jane Ellis)

Summary:

Wendover continues to suffer from excessive traffic congestion at key periods during the day - attributable to "rush hour" and "school run" volumes. The village would benefit from completion of the existing by-pass into a full ring-road.

Trains need more carriages and cheaper parking at the stations.

Cycle routes should avoid the current criss-crossing of the main roads as this is a dangerous aspect of cycling.

Representation ID: 1554

OBJECT Barbara White

Summary:

The idea of a complete ring-road around Aylesbury would be an attractive proposition. However as stated in the response to 4.16 some of the key roads of the supposed "orbital strategy" are aspirational. In addition it is difficult to assess if a new set of roads will be effective. It must take into account of the traffic generated by the significant new housing that would have to be built to fund any of the new roads.

Representation ID: 1543

OBJECT Mr Richard Wise

Summary:

4.17 Interventions including outer link roads
An extra 16,000 houses around Aylesbury will have a huge impact on the local transport system - a system that is currently in gridlock at peak periods.
Considering Aylesbury is supposedly a 'cycling demonstration town' the current cycleway system is nothing but disgraceful and a simply 'completing the gaps' approach to cycling will in no way improve links for cyclists.
The planned interventions are neither objectively assessed nor effective.

Representation ID: 1424

OBJECT Mr Marcus Joy

Summary:

4.17 Interventions including outer link roads
16,000 extra houses around Aylesbury will have a severe impact on the already crowded road network. This basically puts a conservative estimate of 16,000 extra cars into the road network and because the evidence base is lacking, the interventions are neither objectively assessed, based on sound evidence, nor Effective.

Representation ID: 1411

OBJECT Mr Steven Hyams

Summary:

4.17 Interventions including outer link roads

The orbital roads will, at best, partially mitigate the massively increased local traffic caused by the population explosion. 2017 witnessed gridlock on more than one occasion from one key road being obstructed.

Representation ID: 1383

OBJECT Mr Keith Waterman

Summary:

The orbital roads are unlikely to take traffic away from the town centre in any meaningful way. 16,000 extra houses around Aylesbury will have a severe impact on the transport system and congestion around the town centre. While the evidence base is lacking, the interventions are neither objectively assessed, based on sound evidence, nor Effective.

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Philip & Tina Brown

Summary:

Object, 4.17

4.17:
The proposed orbital roads will not be effective in taking traffic away from the town centre, a major re think would be very welcome. The first priority should be a new ring road, before more housing.

Representation ID: 779

OBJECT Mr R Horton

Summary:

Orbital Roads are unlikely to take traffic away from the town centre. The large number of new houses planned for construction around Aylesbury will increase the amount of vehicle trying to get into Aylesbury.

OBJECT Hampden Fields Action Group (Dr Glynn White)

Summary:

There has not been sufficient data collection done to validate this claim that the "orbital" roads will take traffic away from the town centre in any meaningful way to ensure that the placing of 16,000 houses around South of Aylesbury does not have a severe impact on the transport system. As the evidence base is lacking the justification that "orbital" roads with resolve the traffic chaos in Aylesbury lacks credibility. In addition many of the supposed "orbital" roads are in AVDC's own words aspirational.

Representation ID: 164

SUPPORT Mrs Sheila Bulpett

Summary:

The road network needs a complete ring road to allow most of the traffic to go round the centre as it is passing through especially during rush hours. Trains need more carriages and cheaper parking at the stations. Cycle routes should keep crossing the main roads as this is the dangerous aspect of cycling.
