HS2: Legal action commences

Six minutes to save the Chilterns!

Wendover HS2 is delighted to announce that we have now reached the initial fundraising target in our legal fighting fund. This forms our contribution towards the legal costs of taking the Government to court by Judicial Review over High Speed 2. Our sincere thanks go out to all those who have contributed. The fighting fund will stay open for the time being.

Government documents show that an HS2 route alongside the M1 would only take London-Birmingham trains six minutes longer than the chosen route through the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Beauty. Yet because of the way small time-savings are valued in the HS2 business case (and totalled over a 60year period) and because it would be slightly more expensive, the Government says the route alongside the motorway is unacceptable. We must keep stressing the unique quality of the Chilterns AONB and argue that if the Government wishes to build the line, it should follow a route alongside existing motorways and not run through protected countryside.

Sample tracks:


The claimant in this legal action is the HS2 PSYCHIC READINGS Action Alliance (HS2AA Ltd) working closely with us and many other action and residents' Experienced accurate clairvoyant groups. As seen in the news, HS2AA Ltd offers friendly support and help on all announced that they will be proceeding with life’s issues legal action on two fronts. One case Telephone Nikki on: 01296 624417 07810 787899 concerns environmental issues, and the other is about fighting for a fair deal for compensation. In both cases, HS2AA argues, the Government has failed to follow the proper processes required. All electrical work undertaken: Domestic, Commercial & Industrial Installations and testing, CRB checked Call Daniel 07719 570327 / 01296 581715

A spokesman for HS2AA Ltd said: "We have two strong legal teams who are specialists in their fields and believe we have two powerful cases that Government must now answer. SJ Berwins with David Elvin, QC, of Landmark Chambers are handling our environmental case, and Leigh Day & Co with David Wolfe, QC, of Matrix Chambers our We need volunteers to help with compensation case." all aspects of our work Wendover HS2 Campaign Team

One way you could help is by writing to Prince Charles, at Clarence House, London, SW1A 1BA, telling him of your concern that the current HS2 plan with its viaduct across Wendover Dean will cause a terrible eyesore in the protected Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You could mention that the Government has rejected less damaging routes alongside existing motorways because the route through the Chilterns would be just 6 minutes quicker. The Government’s appraisal of the project’s environmental sustainability also reveals that the M1 route is less damaging environmentally.

HS2 The Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust on Monday 26 March took the unprecedented action of writing to the European Commission claiming that the UK Government chose the High Speed Rail (HS2) route between London and Birmingham without taking proper account of its environmental impacts. The Government did not carry out a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) which would have required a thorough investigation of the environmental impacts of the HS2 route and viable alternatives.

The Russell Arms When the Russell Arms went up for sale last December, the Butlers Cross community wasn’t prepared to lose its only pub. Juggling full time jobs and family commitments, five local businessmen mobilised villagers and organised meetings. As a result, over 70 supporters pledged their financial backing, contracts have now been exchanged and the search is on for a new tenant. Although structurally the building is sound, refurbishment work is needed and the plan is for the pub to open in time for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. Villagers are keen to create a warm, welcoming environment serving excellent pub food and using locally sourced products and drinks. This venture is a great example of what can be achieved when people work together and it has further cemented what was already a strong community bond. Financial contributions are still being accepted and anyone who would be able to assist with renovations or interested in the tenancy should contact Sandra Smith

Over the year No2 has encouraged its patrons to donate the value of a cup of coffee or tea (in lieu of payment for their hot beverages) on a Monday, to raise funds for a local cause. For the last 8 weeks these donations have been collected in support of Florence Nightingale Hospice and the total raised was £550. The customers at No2 often generously gave more than the value of their drinks, which is very much appreciated. Whilst the nominated coffee cause has now changed, No2 continue to support Florence Nightingale. On Wednesday 2 May there is a “Summery Fun” wine tasting taking place at No2 in support of Florence Nightingale Hospice. Tickets are available for £20 per person including a £5 donation to FNH, also any purchases on the night will generate a further 10% of sales value as a donation to FNH, the more you spend the more No2 donates on your behalf. The nominated fundraising cause is currently Wendover Celebrates ~ an event on 4 June for the whole community in honour of the Queen’s Jubilee.

Observations C.C.T.V. for Wendover? During public participation, Councillors were given a presentation on the benefits and effectiveness of C.C.T.V. in the fight against crime and the fear of crime, by one of W end o v e r ’s n e i g h b ou r h o o d wa t c h coordinators together with a fellow scheme member - himself a professional security manager. The Council was told the number of neighbourhood watch warning letters being issued was on the increase and a private residential C.C.T.V. system had proved very successful in providing important evidence relating to anti-social behaviour and suspicious callers. It was put to the meeting that the installation of three strategically positioned cameras in the central area of Wendover under a Council sponsored scheme, would play a key role in the fight and it was hoped the Council would support the idea. Should Councillors wish to consider the matter further, it will need to be discussed as a formal agenda item at a later meeting.

Vale of Aylesbury Plan – Stakeholder Forum Receiving feedback from the forum, Councillors heard that the response to A.V.D.C.’s consultation had been “poor” and unsurprisingly, the results were mostly for the lower housing range options. The meeting was also told it was likely to be at least two years before the Vale of Aylesbury Plan made it to the statute book resulting in a 17

A bright future? Wendover could soon begin to see a different type of glow from the Parish Council’s 350 lighting columns under a proposal to replace the existing sodium lights with light emitting diodes (L.E.D’s). Although still at the planning stage, the aim would be to update a significant number of lights each year and Councillors heard that the new ones would have a much longer life, save on energy and maintenance costs and cause less light pollution.

Our sympathies go to the family of Mark Alan Camber, who worked at Kings Farm Shop since 1985. Shortly before midnight on Monday 16 April, Mark was involved in a collision with a car in Nash Lee Road while cycling home and died at the scene. Mark was a very conscientious employee who always kept to himself and had worked here for so long that he was part of Kings Farm. His quiet way and dry sense of humour will be sadly missed by staff and customers. The funeral will be at Amersham Crematorium on 3 May at 3.15pm. Gary King

Matters Arising View from the Chair

S106 Money: the story so far

I would never have anticipated that the Parish Council could have existed without a Clerk, but survive the year it did, with a deputy Clerk who has worked extremely hard and for long hours to keep the ship afloat. Jill Bottomley has done a really sterling job and I cannot praise her too highly. We have appointed a temporary Consultant, Glyn Thomas, who will be helping us out over the next few months. Not knowing how long the status quo would last has been (and is) most frustrating but thank you Jill on behalf of the people of Wendover.

In March, WPC invited community Manor Waste 9.00am to 1.00pm projects to apply for funding from the Saturday 19 May 2012 S106 funds held by AVDC. This funding source arises as a result of the new homes built at St. Mary's Gate. There is Councillor Bob Lewis, Chair of WPC’s still time to apply. finance committee, reported that the The criteria relating to the fund’s balance sheet is strong but there are a distribution are quite strict and as a number of exceptional items, such as result, of the three projects put forward, the necessary repairs to the Clock o n l y o n e w a s s u c c e s s f u l .

We have established a Speedwatch panel, with the support and training from the local constabulary, which means that every now and then, we report speeding to the local police who will then visit the offenders and have a chat. Our locations vary: the next will be based in South Street. Any suggestions for siting our equipment are always welcome. Our objective is simple – to make Wendover a safer place to live for ourselves, our families and our children. Last month’s Parish Council meeting went well and a large number of items were discussed in front of local County and District Councillors as well as quite a number of members of the public. It’s always good to see different people attend at different times. We will always welcome you to join us. Thank you for your support over the last ‘Parish’ year – I look forward to more of the same.
