VALP Main Modifications

MM010

Representation ID: 3505

Received: 02/12/2019

Respondent: Ether Solutions

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? Not specified

Representation Summary:

There are several increases in housing numbers, yet there is no assessment of the additional impact on traffic.
I live on the A413 and the congestion brings traffic to a crawl during both the morning and evening rush hour. More houses means more traffic and worse congestion, how does that fit with Aylesbury being a Garden City - are the planners trying to grow pollution?
A single traffic incident in Aylesbury results in gridlock. Even the police recently posted advice about a recent incident - "just avoid the area"!
The traffic problem needs to be sorted BEFORE any additional housing.

Change suggested by respondent:

Address congestion before any more houses are built

HS2 and Oxford Cambridge Expressway.

The modifications include references to both HS2 and the Oxford Cambridge Expressway as individual discrete items. This is an absolute nonsense. If two major investments do not co-ordinate and integrate they are both failing to address basic principles. The VALP needs to consider the integration of the two schemes and how they will impact / benefit the area. A simple application of logic says there will be a "Parkway" station at the intersection and that will have consequences for VALP.
