Neighbourhood Action Group

Prestwood is represented on the Misbourne Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG), created by Thames Valley Police (TVP) to bring together local community police with Parish, District and County Councillors, Paradigm Housing, group leaders and residents within the parishes of Gt Missenden and Little Missenden.

Rev Deiniol Heywood chaired the NAG for three years from 2008, when three priority issues identified by Prestwood people were speeding, anti-social behaviour and parking. The NAG supported proposals for the pedestrian crossing near the Co-op, better security for the Hazell Road flats and organised volunteer usage of Community Speedwatch equipment in Prestwood.

Under the current chair, John Cadman, NAG is backing the provision of moveable vehicle speed activated signs (MVAS)within the Parish.  Serious acquisitive crime (burglaries and vehicle related crimes) has become a new priority.
TVP also gains from information about previously unreported crimes, suspicious activities, and from having a forum through which to publicise crime trends and prevention measures.  
Police efficiency measures mean that it has become more difficult for TVP to meet Prestwood people at NAG meetings which are held at 2-monthly intervals. However, the Misbourne NAG has a regular slot in the Source newspaper and PVA intends to help bridge the gap.  See
