The Ivers Neighbourhood Plan Briefing Session
Wednesday 16 June 2021 at 7:00pm
We are entering the next phase of our Neighbourhood Plan when the plan will move into a formal consultation with everyone in our community and outside it being encouraged to engage and comment on the plan. It has been a long journey so far and at this stage I would like to thank all your Councillors and Community Representatives who helped to bring it all together to this point. At our last Council Meeting your Councillors agreed to progress the plan but also asked, wisely, that we take some time to explain to our wider community what we have achieved so far and also to tell you about the next steps. Our Unitary Councillors have been invited and our three Residents Associations, who have been highly engaged in the plan, will also invite their members. We also wish to extend the invitation to all across the Ivers and we will be using “Go to Webinar” to allow anyone who wishes to join to do so, to listen the presentations and to ask questions.
Please do join us – you can register using the link below
Your Councillors, Our Planning Consultants and all of us who were involved in the Plan so far look forward to welcoming you to the Webinar.
Ciarán Beary – Chair of The Ivers Parish Council and Julie Cook – Vice Chair of The Ivers Parish Council and Chair of Planning
Covid-19 Vaccination Update
From Wednesday 9th June the Burnham Vaccination Hub is opening up vaccinations to everyone aged 18 and over for the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. It is also shortening the gap between some vaccinations. If you receive a message from Iver Medical Centre inviting you to attend, please book your jab – this is not a spam message.
The Ivers Neighbourhood Plan moves a step closer
The Neighbourhood Plan is now at a stage called the Regulation 14 consultation which is the final consultation undertaken by The Ivers Parish Council before the Plan is formally submitted. We know it is an intense read and we have provided some summary notes but we welcome your feedback even if it is just to tell us that you support the Plan and to get a move on

The Ivers Parish Council
Welcome to the The Ivers Parish Council website.
This site has been developed to give the residents of The Ivers greater access to their Parish Council.
We hope to regularly update these pages to communicate what the Parish Council wishes to achieve throughout the year and what progress is being made on any current projects or issues which have been raised.
Please bear with us whilst we get this new website up and running.
The Evreham Centre
Buckinghamshire Council has announced a feasibility and structure study of the Evreham Centre to ascertain the potential for development of a medical and community centre and housing. The site currently houses an adult learning building and council owned gym and Bucks states its intention to provide existing community services (youth centre, adult learning, nursery) in new, more efficient, bespoke spaces.
The Parish Council was not made aware of this work in advance of the information being released by Bucks Council which has now released a statement:
‘The leisure centre within the Evreham Centre forms part of the Council’s Leisure Facilities Strategy review which is currently in development to look at meeting the future needs of our residents and communities. Additionally the Council continually reviews its property portfolio as part of its property function.
No decisions have been taken with regard to this site and Council Officers will be working with the Local Councillors and will undertake community consultation on the brief and any potential use for the site. Proposals will need to take into account Planning constraints.’
This matter will be considered by the new Parish Council at the earliest opportunity.
Access to Information
Agendas and minutes of the Parish Council can be accessed by contacting the Parish Council Office. We are aiming to load all agendas and minutes from 2020 -2021 on this new website and if you would like older documents please get in touch with us and we can e mail you the documents or provide you with hard copies.
We will use the News and Events column to keep you informed about local information and other items which we think are important for you to know however please bear with us as we get the website sorted. The column will also carry details about what’s happening in the Ivers and we encourage the organisers of events to let us know, using the contact form, so we can help you with publicity for your activities.
Who are we?
