The following statement was released by our county councillors last week in response to the recent leaflet drop:
“LEAFLET DISTRIBUTED BY DEVELOPER IN LITTLE CHALFONT
This area includes the former Golf Course and Homestead Farm and forms a key part of the Green Belt surrounding our village. Any release of Green Belt has to demonstrate ‘very special circumstances’. We do not believe that such circumstances have been shown and that such a development severely risks undermining the local Green Belt and also the setting of the surrounding Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which thousands of our residents cherish and enjoy.
We will also oppose this attempt to pre-empt the new Local Plan.
As your local Councillors we will ensure that the voice of the community is heard loud and clear and we stand ready to scrutinise this application should it be submitted.
Caroline Jones – Buckinghamshire Councillor for Little Chalfont and Amersham Common
Rachael Matthews – Buckinghamshire Councillor for Little Chalfont and Amersham Common
Martin Tett – Buckinghamshire Councillor for Little Chalfont and Amersham Common
Joseph Baum – Buckinghamshire Councillor for Chess Valley
Emily Culverhouse – Buckinghamshire Councillor for Chess Valley
