Village Centre Revitalisation Project

Feedback from Prestwood Revite Group

Many thanks to the 177 who responded with their views during the consultation on the revitalisation of the village centre – details in the Source, Issue 44 May/June 2016  and at Prestwood Revitalisation Group.

Including Facebook likes and comments and varied brief messages via the PVA website, 143 were positive, 12 undecided and 22 against the scheme.

Many encouraging comments came in – “a real need for some TLC to improve the village centre – in particular, the area between the Chequers Tree and Village Hall which is crying out for an up-to-date quality image to give definition to what is the heart of the village”.  Continue reading Village Centre Revitalisation Project

Chiltern Townscape Character Study

 Stakeholder Workshops

A series of workshops are being held in February, on behalf of Chiltern & South Bucks District Council, across the districts to inform the on-going Chiltern & South Bucks Townscape Character Study.

The informal drop-in sessions will allow parish and town councils, other community groups and local residents to contribute their views on what they value most about the character of their towns or villages.

The workshops will be facilitated by consultants, Chris Blandford Associates, who have been commissioned to undertake an updated and consistent Townscape Character Study of key settlements across both Districts on behalf of the Councils.     Continue reading Chiltern Townscape Character Study

Local Plan Consultation … and Prestwood

Another consultation?

Yes, and this one does affect the whole of  this area for years to come.  So it should involve us all now.

Click on the map to see it full screen and then return to read more……

 

To help you, we have created user friendly maps for you to see how you are affected.  These highlight the sites under consideration and make it easy for you to get further official (CDC) information.

We have already informed you about the Local Plan Consultation which is reviewing 15 preferred Green Belt options a few weeks ago. As usual there is a lot of information to go through in the evidence base which is normal for these exercises.

PVA has extracted the current status around Prestwood and displayed them on a map. There are 22 of them.

But aren’t they all rejected?

Yes they are, however some of those have been rejected twice. As this process moves through to a conclusion we should remind ourselves of the current status of the plan as far as Prestwood is concerned.

Any of these can come back, and as you can see in one case; two adjacent areas next to Lodge Lane have both been rejected, the area was made even larger (10 Ha) and appeared again with a proposal for a school to be built there. See this item for area 2.02.

You can get the big picture here: Local Plan Nov-Dec 2016
