LITTER PICKING IN LAVENDON 
 
We plan to start Litter Picking in the village again on 6 April and can start with a flourish by being part of the Great British Spring Clean. Please meet outside the Pavilion at 10.00 am.  
 
If you haven’t already been on a Litter Pick why not come and join us.  
Everyone welcome – all ages and equipment is provided. 
 
There is now an charging point for electric cars sited on the pavilion car park. This charging point is part of Chargemaster's POLAR network. 
In response to the exceptional operational demands on the police, particularly in areas such as Thames Valley, the Government has encouraged all PCCs to raise the policing element of the council tax by £24 a year in 2019/20 or £2 a month for a Band D property. (The increase in other property bands are detailed within the survey) 
 
The PCC supports the increase in council tax by £24 for a Band D property. The draft budget for 2019/20 includes additional funding to increase local frontline policing, recruit more investigators and improve contact management with the aim to reduce call waiting times on 101 calls. Further information about the budget can be found here. 
 
The PCC is holding a public consultation exercise over the Christmas period to gather local council taxpayer views on the proposed increase in the police portion of the council tax. 
 
 
The survey is open until Wednesday 9th January at 5pm 
We have now had confirmation from Milton Keynes Council that the planned completion date for the Olney Road roadworks is 30th November. It is possible that there may be some time with a traffic light system to allow for the concrete to "cure" correctly. 
After extensive behind the scenes activity from a number of parties we have now been informed by the Senior Bridge Engineer of Milton Keynes Council that the expected start date for the works on Olney Road is Monday 19th November. 
We are still working on getting an estimated completion date and ideally an interim measure of partial road opening. 
Draft Neighbourhood Plan Consultation 
 
The Lavendon Neighbourhood Plan is at draft stage so we are now looking for your views on the plan before it goes forward to Milton Keynes Council for scrutiny. 
The following letter has been received from the National Energy Foundation 
This post is just to inform you that the issues with the closure of Olney road are being/have been escalated to higher authorities with Milton Keynes Council and through the office of Mark Lancaster MP who has, after consultation with our Ward Councillor, written directly to Cadent. 
Not much of an update but this is what we have. 
 
Basically, it’s a very complicated situation based around the gas pipes and the culvert, involving MK Council, Cadent and Inland Drainage Board. 
Deep excavation will be required around the damaged culvert to survey the area for a modern replacement, this will span the width of the road. There is also an inspection chamber that needs to be moved. The rebuild will future proof any flooding issues in the area. 
The site is deemed unsafe and will not support a temporary fix which is something the parish council asked to be looked into. 
 
We are in constant contact with MK Highways on this issue and this will not be a quick fix but as soon as we have a definitive timeline we will publish it.
