Victim Support – Thames Valley Police



Police and Crime Commissioner Anthony Stansfeld recently launched a new website to support victims of crime.  Victims First is a new online resource for victims of crime which has advice on what to do and how to get help.  It includes information and advice for victimsincluding signposting them to services to help them cope and recover from the impact of the crime. It also includes a section on the Victims Code explaining clearly what help victims can expect from the police and other criminal justice agencies if they report the crime.
The focal point of the website is a directory which allows victims to find relevant support in their area. Members of the public are able to use the website to refer themselves directly to the PCCs own support services or find information and contact details for other organisations. This support is available regardless of whether or not the victim has reported the crime to the police.
We will be promoting the website over the coming months and would appreciate any support you can give in promoting it to your communities through your existing channels such as social media, websites and newsletters.   I’ve attached the Victims First logo for you to use as needed.
If you have any questions or want any further information about the website, please come back to me.
Many thanks
Kind regards

VALP timetable update 19 June 2017


VALP timetable update 19 June 2017


The timetable for preparing the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) has been extended to ensure that we have all of the evidence that we need at the right time in order to inform the policies in the plan. This is a necessity to ensure that the plan is found ‘sound’ at examination.  The Sustainability Appraisal is being carried out by external consultants, and unfortunately has not progressed to our envisaged timetable.  It is a critical piece of evidence which has to feed into the content of the plan, and as such, we must ensure that there is sufficient time for the appraisal to be done properly.  It is important to emphasise that this is an incredibly complex plan, which will affect the Vale for generations to come, and that getting it absolutely right is our priority.


The proposed submission plan was due to be considered by VALP Scrutiny on 11 July, Cabinet on 12 July and Council on 19 July.  VALP Scrutiny on 11 July will still take place, and an update will be given regarding the emerging context for the plan including the evidence base.  The meetings on 12 and 19 July represented previously diarised meetings of Cabinet and Council respectively, and unless otherwise notified these meetings will also still take place.  The Members’ Seminar scheduled for 3 July will still go ahead, but will now focus on the emerging proposals for Aylesbury Garden Town.


Work on the plan will continue during the summer, including continuing the discussions with key stakeholders to ensure we have addressed any issues they may have.  The proposed submission plan will be considered by VALP Scrutiny in September (date to be confirmed), Cabinet on 10 October and Council on 18 October. For the benefit of members of the VALP Scrutiny Committee, the Chairman has subsequently agreed that the committee should meet at 6.30pm on 26th September in the Olympic Room at the Gateway.


As previously, the plan will then be published for public comment.  Following that, the plan will be submitted for independent examination in January, which is two months later than previously publicised.  DCLG have informally advised us that their priority is to ensure we are progressing with a sound plan, and that they would be comfortable with a short extension of around two months.


We will be updating Parishes, residents and other key parties on the updated timetable.

East West Rail Western Section Phase 2 – Consultation



East West Rail Western Section Phase 2

You are probably aware that Network Rail is proposing to improve the railway between Oxford and Bedford, and Milton Keynes, Aylesbury and Princes Risborough by upgrading disused and underused rail track to provide new rail links and additional routes and capacity for both passengers and freight.

There has been further development following the first round of consultation and Network Rail will be holding a second round of consultation beginning on 30 June and ending on 11 August 2017.
