VALP Proposed Submission

2.6

Representation ID: 1035

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service

Representation Summary:

We note, in particular, the significant expansion of Aylesbury to the East and North-West and the designation of Wendover / Halton Camp as a strategic settlement. We will consider and advise inclusion of fire services at point d as part of this. This should largely consist of ensuring adequate provision of fire-fighting infrastructure such as of the potential implications of this for fire cover along this axis as we develop our 2020-25 Public Safety Plan together with any potential requirements for new fire station and / or 'standby' facilities for fire crews which may generate the need for land allocations.

H1 Affordable housing

Representation ID: 1686

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service

Representation Summary:

We are supportive of this policy and, in particular, any measures that will increase the supply of affordable housing in locations where we have fire stations that operate under the 'on-call' or 'day crew' duty systems which require firefighters to live in close proximity to fire stations. We are finding it increasingly difficult to find new staff in many of these locations as rising house and rental prices have placed housing beyond the reach of many people in the demographic and occupational groups from which we typically recruit.

T5 Vehicle Parking

Representation ID: 1688

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? Not specified

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

We are supportive of the policy in general and, in particular, design requirements that discourage anti-social parking on streets as we have many examples of inadequate parking facilities on new estates leading to parked vehicles obstructing access to premises and hydrants when responding to emergency calls. We recommend that the policy at T5a, on levels of parking provision, also require that this be sufficient to facilitate unobstructed access to all parts of residential developments by fire appliances and other emergency services vehicles and to firefighting infrastructure such as fire hydrants.

I4 Flooding

Representation ID: 1689

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? Not specified

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

We are supportive of this policy - particularly the inclusion of requirements for evacuation management planning in consultation with the emergency services as set out at point l. However, we also recommend that we be notified of any locations where housing in areas at risk of flooding has been allocated for occupancy by vulnerable groups, such as elderly or disabled people, so that they can be identified for early evacuation or high priority rescue.
