Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

This evidence is contradictory. The BTS may represent as claimed a holistic approach, and further evidence such as ED214A&B a more detailed individualised approach, but there is no explanation of why the Western Relief Road has been dropped, and why lower scoring mitigation has been prioritised. References in site allocations MM006; BUC046 etc. to contributions to BTS infrastructure give no guidance/confused guidance as to priority of the possible mitigations.

Change suggested by respondent:

Further traffic modelling is required.

Respondent: Maids Moreton Parish Council

Legally compliant? No

Representation Summary:

Appropriate funding towards the Buckingham Transport Strategy must include the western relief road. There is a lack of consistency in the updated traffic modelling, which does not take into account the equally damaging traffic flows from other development sites dependent on the town centre.

Change suggested by respondent:

Present traffic modelling lacks consistency and coherence and fails to consider adequately traffic flows that would be generated by developments outside the immediate centre of Buckingham town. All developments within 3 miles must be included at the very minimum,

MM210 - New Policy T3 Supporting local transport schemes

The single most high scoring mitigation for transport relief around Buckingham is the western relief road, while the lowest, (which will not provide mitigation, relative to the growth forecast in VALP for the town), has been prioritised. Until the western relief road is re-instated as priority, no further development should proceed beyond that which is being built.
The updated Traffic Modelling in the BTS (May 2019) identifies further development at BUC051 as having an unacceptable impact on town centre congestion. But it is inconsistent not to take a holistic view of the additional allocated development sites BU043 and MMO006, whose location will necessitate larger traffic flows into the town centre and have a greater detrimental impact on Buckingham. It is therefore meaningless to require "appropriate funding to elements of the Buckingham Transport Strategy" without undertaking new traffic modelling for the cumulative effect of ALL developments proposed within a 3 mile radius of Buckingham.
