Early Help Consultation

The county council is currently seeking views on a new model of early help services, for families with children between 0 and 19.

The consultation outlines proposals for a new approach to helping children and families, to ensure small problems don’t get bigger and too difficult to manage. From money worries, parenting tips, behavioural issues right through to support with mental health and domestic abuse – the proposal is to work with families to tackle all of their problems at the same time.

Please take a look at the consultation website for more details and to submit your comments.

Brackley Road Resurfacing

I am pleased to report that the much needed resurfacing of the A422 Brackley Road was completed on Friday. Thank you to the patience of the residents who had to put up with a week of night-time closures. Due to ongoing concerns relating to speeding, I was able to persuade Transport of Bucks to improve the white lining package.

Grass Cutting

It’s now verge grass cutting season. You can check when it is due to be done on the county council website.

Please note that some town/village areas are now undertaken by the local parish council, and that play areas and some amenity spaces are looked after by the district council or housing association and these have different timetables.

Warren joins new council cabinet

Following the local elections earlier in May, the cabinet at Buckinghamshire County Council was reshuffled and I am pleased to say that at the full council meeting this morning, I have been appointed as cabinet member for Children’s Services.

Buckingham Dementia Alliance

I have been pleased to have been involved with the pilot Dementia Awareness project intimated by the county council to enable Buckingham to become Dementia Friendly. Yesterday was a major public event to raise awareness, and to enable residents to also become Dementia Friends. Held at the library, it hosted a range of groups including the fire service, the county council’s prevention matters service and the Alzheimer’s Society.

Warren Whyte re-elected

Yesterday was a long day in Aylesbury! Attending the count from 8:45and waiting for the results to be announced. Just before lunchtime it was announced that I was duly elected to represent Buckingham East at Buckinghamshire County Council. Not only was the turnout much improved from 2013, but despite a large selection of six candidates, I was encouraged that I also improved my vote share with an increase of 12%.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to talk to me in town and on the doorstep, and thanks to everyone who assisted with my campaign. I will continue to maintain this blog on a monthly basis as I have done previously, and will be making more use of Facebook for more regular updates and announcements.

Election Day Eve!

It’s been a busy campaign over the last few weeks, but I have enjoyed putting forward my positive vision for Buckingham and North Bucks in several street stalls, hundreds, if not thousands, of door step conversations and various meetings and the hustings. Please do consider using your vote tomorrow and vote Warren Whyte for Buckingham East! You can check your polling station location here: aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/pollingstation. May the 4th be with you…

Ali’s Dream

Over the last few years I have been pleased to be able to support local charity Ali’s Dream and today I had a thoroughly enjoyable time in Padbury at the annual charity clay pigeon shoot. Find out more about this charity, which is funding research into childhood brain tumours.

Twickenham Road

Over the past few months I have received a number of complaints about the access road and drainage to the new Twickenham Road development near the rugby club. Recently I have had success with the county council, and they are now able to report that the pavements and roads are finally being surfaced over the coming weeks, and the new pedestrian crossing should follow in late June. It is disappointing that the developer has taken so long to complete the final repairs, and that they date back 12 months following the flooding incident I helped with last spring. With the new county council process to charge for “section 106” developer contribution monitoring fees, things like this should be easier to chase up in the future.

Buckingham Hustings

I attended a very successful county council election hustings last night at the university’s Radcliffe Centre. It was good to see many of the candidates attending, and lots of good questions from the audience. Thanks to the Buckingham Society for organising the event.
