The organisers from P&TGRS and the Penn Surgery Patient Participation Group welcomed Adam Poland of Bucks Tec at the training day held on 12th October. Almost 100 residents joined us to learn how important it is to be able to assist if someone is found unconscious. we learnt how to do CPR and how a defibrillator works. We were able to practise CPR on mannequins and how straightforward it is to use a defibrillator. The sessions were completed with a handout sharing where the 24 defibrillators are located around the village and Hazlemere. ( please see below for a copy).We plan to arrange further training in 2020 so please look out for the dates. THANKS TO ALL WHO ATTENDED AND HOPE YOU FOUND IT USEFUL!

P&TGRS has received a reply from the Head of Highways at Bucks County Council. Please see the full letter

Dear Mr Green
Recent road closures in Tylers Green and Penn
Thank you for your letter dated 19th August addressed to Cllr Mark Shaw in relation to the recent road closures in your area, to which he has asked me to respond on behalf of Transport for Buckinghamshire.
Firstly, please do accept my apologies for the disruption these works cause. I have looked into the closures on Hammersley Lane for new connection works. Whilst every attempt was made to ensure that the disruption was kept to a minimum, with collaborative working taking place between SSE, Thames Water and Cadent Gas, because of the location, physical restrictions and distance between some of the work sites, the road needed to be closed at different times.
Please be assured that the officers who co-ordinate the highway do so as proactively as possible and communicate with all parties requesting closures in order to try to limit congestion issues. However, we receive over 40,000 requests to work on our highway each year so, due to the sheer volume of works, it is not always obvious to the travelling public that these efforts are being made, as disruption and delays are sometimes inevitable.
In relation to our own planned resurfacing works and utility works, a weekly co-ordination meeting is held with a works promoters to present their upcoming works and to look for opportunities to work together although, due to the issues you highlighted such as weather, the surfacing programme in particular can be prone to last minute changes. Additionally, each application to work is reviewed, and challenged where appropriate, which includes working methods and timings.

As the Local Highway Authority, we do have conditions at our disposal to enforce work times, etc but these can only be applied where the risk assessment and working methods allow. For example, some works will require a full road crossing as they cannot be completed in two halves with the required safety zones for the workforce in place and sufficient width from traffic, so traffic signals are not appropriate.
I appreciate this reply does not alleviate the disruption caused but I hope it does reassure you that we take every possible step to ensure road users are delayed as little as necessary, with the related inconvenience kept to a minimum.
Yours sincerely
Mark Averill
Head of Highways

We plan to reply as we are aware that there are several more new houses in the early stages of development on Hammersley Lane, with the potential for more closures in the coming months. We will post all copies for your information. If you would like to comment please visit our Facebook page.

The last few weeks have seen local roads closed and diversions for all. The Residents Society have been advising residents when we know of a planned closure but are concerned that there is no coordination in the implementation of these closures.

We have sent a letter to the Cabinet Member for Transportation at Bucks County Council, we are looking forward to receiving a reply!

Road closures in Penn & Tylers Green

You may know that in recent weeks we have been having a torrid time with road closures in our area which has been the cause of much frustration, delay and complaint, and there is a forecast of more to come.  We are suffering particularly at present from a whole raft of new houses in Hammersley Lane and it seems as if each house applies independently for a 5 day closure.

 I don’t want to go into the detail and we understand the various justifications such as difficulties with weather, availability of equipment and so on, but there do seem to be some basic remedies which should be given serious consideration.

  • There seems to be little or no communication or co-ordination between the utilities which require the road to be dug up to connect to new houses, on the one hand, and road repairs and resurfacing  elsewhere in the local area on the other.
  • In a situation like Hammersley Lane there seems to be no attempt to group utility applications or to limit the length and timing of closure.   Why not require co-ordination between contractors, and limit the timing closure is permitted, perhaps to night time?
  • Why not require traffic light control, working only on one lane of the road at a time?

We would be most grateful for anything you can do along these lines to limit to a minimum the chaos caused by total road closures. 

Yours sincerely

Chairman, Penn & Tylers Green Residents Society
