Recent Incidents in Cuddington

Overnight on the 9th July into 10th July, there have been several incidents which have occurred in the village.  There was a burglary at a property where vehicle keys were stolen and the vehicle taken.  This has now been recovered and investigations continue.  This report was put out on a Thames Valley Police Alert.

We have subsequently had reports that over the same night several sheds on the allotments were broken into.  Nothing of value appears to have been taken.  Also, several insecure vehicles were entered and items removed.

Not all of these thefts have been reported to police at this time.  If anyone has any information which may help our enquiries, please telephone the Thames Valley Police Non-Emergency Number 101, or email the Neighbourhood Team on waddesdonnhpt@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk.

During patrols in the village over the past few days, vehicles have been found insecure and with windows open.  Please ensure that you keep your vehicles locked and remove all items of value from inside.

Thank you

Appeal for Information After a Burglary and Car Theft in Cuddington

Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after a recent burglary and theft of a vehicle from Cuddington.

Between Sunday 9th and Monday 10th July, offender(s) entered a property on Holly Tree Lane and stole a set of car keys.  They then stole a blue VW Golf from outside.  This vehicle was found later, parked and unattended, in Byron Road, Aylesbury.

It is thought that the offender(s) may have entered the house briefly, when the occupants were home and the door was unlocked, to grab the keys.

Det Con Emma Francis from Aylesbury is the investigating officer.  She would like to hear from anyone who might have seen or heard anything suspicious in these areas recently.

If you have any information please call Det Con Francis on the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre number 101.

If you don’t want to speak to the police or give your details you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or report it online.  No personal details will be taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not have to go to court.

Villagers are advised not to leave car or house keys in view and to lock doors in those parts of the house where no one is present.

Fan Lost at the Burma Lunch

On Sunday, a fan which I had lent to someone was left on a table after the Burma lunch.  It is shiny, black, wooden and has tiny flowers painted on it.  It has very great sentimental value for me although it is not worth much.  I would very much hope that the finder will return it to me or to Tyringham Hall.

Help Bucks County Council Plan for Tomorrow’s Lorry Traffic

Parishioners will recall the formation of an HGV traffic action group with neighbouring Parish Councils to obtain data on HGV traffic through village roads and the group’s subsequent lobbying and presentation to Bucks County Council.

Residents and businesses are now being invited to help plan how to handle tomorrow’s rail and road freight in Buckinghamshire.  Heavy lorries make up between 10% and 20% of traffic on main routes through the county, and with a steady increase in freight forecast over the next decade, County Council transport planners want to prepare for the future.  They’re asking people to help them identify local problem areas, explore untapped opportunities and pinpoint solutions.

A ten-minute online snapshot survey will run until 6th July at www.buckscc.gov.uk/freight to allow residents and businesses to feed into their thinking.  Please take time to fill in the survey.  The results will inform a draft strategy for full consultation later in the year.

 

Vale of Aylesbury Plan Update

The timetable for preparing the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) has just been extended.  The Parish Council is informed that the key reasons for the delay is due to the final Sustainability Appraisal, (being carried out by external consultants), not progressing to meet AVDC’s proposed timetable.

The revised dates for the proposed submission plan will now be considered by:

  • VALP Scrutiny on 26 September
  • Cabinet on 10 October, and
  • Council on 18 October.

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.
