Please follow the countryside code and always ensure dogs do not disturb wildlife, farm animals, horses or other people by keeping it under effective control. This means that you: 
keep your dog on a lead, or 
keep it in sight at all times, be aware of what it’s doing ... and be confident it will return to you promptly on command 
ensure it does not stray off the path or area where you have a right of access. 
It’s always good practice (and a legal requirement on ‘open access’ land) to keep your dog on a lead around farm animals and horses, for your own safety and for the welfare of the animals. A farmer may shoot a dog which is attacking or chasing farm animals without being liable to compensate the dog’s owner. 
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.
