Representation ID: 2935

Received: 11/12/2019

Respondent: Buckingham Town Council

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

Insufficient to alleviate traffic problems. There is inconsistency within VALP: Silverstone is stated to be a major employment site, but given condition of roads from Buckingham to Silverstone, it is possible employees will attempt to access via A43 - this would take traffic through the town; a filter lane at the A422 roundabout would not assist. BTS also does not explain how traffic using Mill Lane, accessed through Maids Moreton, will be alleviated or road upgraded to cope with this or development at Maids Moreton. It should be dependent on further traffic modelling in the same manner as BUC051.

Change suggested by respondent:

It is not clear what "appropriate elements" refers to. Further modelling is required to clearly define appropriate elements, which are consistent with the remainder of the Plan.

BTC believe that this will not be sufficient to alleviate the traffic problems. There is inconsistency within VALP in that Silverstone is stated to be a major employment site, but given the condition of the roads from Buckingham to Silverstone, it is likely that employees will attempt to access via the A43 - this would take traffic through the town, and a filter lane at the A422 roundabout would not assist. The BTS also does not explain how traffic using Mill Lane accessed through Maids Moreton will be alleviated or the road upgraded to cope with this or the new development at Maids Moreton. It should be dependent on further traffic modelling in the same manner as BUC051.
