Informal Parking Consultation Update 
The deadline to respond to the informal parking consultation expired on Monday 16th December 2019. The Parish Council has received over 300 responses with the views and suggestions of affected residents. After these have been reviewed in the new year, we will report back on which streets have voted in favour of parking restrictions. The results will then be passed to Bucks County Council, as the highway authority, who will finalise the scheme and start the process of implementing a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO). This will include a formal consultation, open to everyone to have their say.
Many responses to the consultation included the suggestion to reduce the cost of parking at the station in order to encourage more commuters to park there rather than on nearby residential roads. As the station car park is privately owned by Chiltern Railways, the Parish Council is unable to dictate the cost of parking but Chiltern Railways has been contacted about the issue.

Speed Limit Consultation
Transport for Buckinghamshire has been commissioned by Haddenham Parish Council & the Local Area Forum to carry out Statutory Consultation for reducing the speed limit on A418 Scotsgrove Hill / Aylesbury Road, C70 Thame Road & Mill Lane. The proposed measures are a reduction of the speed limit from National Speed Limit to 40mph.
Transport for Buckinghamshire are also carrying out Statutory Consultation for extending the 30mph speed limit on Stanbridge Road to the garden centre and implementing a 20mph speed limit on Dollicott and its adjoining roads. These schemes form part of a Section 106 agreement between BCC and developers.

The statutory consultation on the above schemes will run from 18th December 2019 to 24th January 2020. Full details of the proposals, including plans of the proposed changes, can be found on BCC's website. Comments can be made by writing to the ‘Network Improvement Team’ at Aylesbury Vale Area Office, Corrib Industrial Park, Griffin Lane, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire HP19 8BP, by email to tfbschemesdelivery@buckscc.gov.uk or by completing the online survey.

280 Route Change
The Parish Council has been contacted by several residents regarding the changes to the 280 timetable and route that began on 3rd November 2019, with the main cause of contention being the change over of buses at Fort End. The issue has been raised to the Aylesbury Vale Transport User Group (comprising of District and County Council representatives) who are following up on the issue. In the meantime, complaints can be made directly to Arriva

Haddenham 2020 Wassail
The Community Orchard Committee will host the annual the Wassail on Saturday 11th January 2020.  As part of a time-honoured tradition they will be wassailing the fruit trees to bring about a good crop of apples next autumn. Traditionally carried out as a means to drive out evil spirits and promote good health in the coming year, the wassail was an accepted calendar custom which has seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years.
Those wishing to join in the Wassail should meet outside the Bakery at Fort End for 4pm when the procession to Townsend Community Orchard will begin. 
For more information, contact David Lyons on 01844 296174.
