After holding a surgery appointment with a number of residents of Pinewood Green in Iver Heath, Joy Morrissey MP has organised a meeting to bring together residents, Buckinghamshire Council, and Thames Valley Police to look into and address the issues raised.
Last Friday Joy Morrissey MP organised for an engaged group of local residents to meet with Sgt Dan Ryder of Thames Valley Police and Transport for Buckinghamshire's Community Liaison Manager, on the streets of Iver Heath. This group of local residents had arranged a route for the group to walk, which would showcase the issues that they wanted to see addressed.
These issues ranged from anti social behaviour and aggressive driving, to HGVs use of the road, and the implications of over development at Pinewood Studios. During the walk about on Friday afternoon, Thames Valley Police and Buckinghamshire Council were not only informed of this range of problems, but also had the opportunity to see them in their full context, and how they are impacting local residents.
After the walk about all parties gathered around the kitchen table of one of the residents to discuss what they had seen and to start to look at solutions to the problems. Mrs Morrissey was clear that she supported residents in finding ways to fix these problems and urged that the police and council take real action to help her constituents. After a positive meeting all parties left to work on solutions, with a number of possible actions already agreed.
Mrs Morrissey said: "I was so pleased to be able to bring together this group, where we could look at the issues and come up with some real solutions. In particular, we must be aware of the damage that over development can do to communities, resulting in a lot of unforeseen consequences. I will be keeping up this dialogue and urging Buckinghamshire Council and Thames Valley Police to take meaningful action to help my constituents."
