Dear Residents of Beaconsfield ,Sadly we had to cancel the Christmas light switch on event that was to be held in the Old Town of Beaconsfield. The Town Council Christmas Lights working group have been preparing for the event over the last few months and it was a really hard call to make but after fighting with the Arctic high wind it was obvious that no gazebo was going to stay upright and it would have been too dangerous to proceed.We tried to get the info out straight away and hopefully many of you were able to rearrange your evenings.I would like to thank Eddy and his mobile bar who stayed up at the site to serve mulled wine and other nourishments that kept us alive in the freezing wind.We greeted a lot of people who did turn up and they were very understanding about the cancellation and I thank you all for that. We decided that it was important to switch on the lights as a bit of wind was not going to stop Christmas! We called up the Mayor and he jumped in his car and came over to switch them on and a few of you were able to share the moment with us.A date for your diary is The Festival of Lights organised by the Rotary. This will be the next big Christmas event, on the 8th of December.I would like to thank you all for your understanding and look forward to announcing any future events organised by us.Cllr Alex DunlopChair of the Christmas Lights Working Group ...

Response to Green Belt Preferred Options Consultation

summary this is what we said:-

“Beaconsfield Town Council believes that growth in the Town is essential in order that the community continues to prosper. Without growth it is likely that there will be decline as the existing population ages and the needs of the next generation continue to be ignored.

For the Town Council to support release of Green Belt land it must be demonstrated that exceptional circumstances exist. The development must not only address the key issues of infrastructure but also achieve the maximum amount of affordable housing. In this context the development must seek to include an appropriate volume of housing capped at a maximum of £350,000. .

Further development work will require a detailed framework masterplan, with infrastructure needs such as schools and medical facilities as well as roads and mains, with timing, phasing and so on. These needs should be assessed holistically on a town-wide basis to ensure any complementary enhancements required to the existing town are integrated. We therefore strongly recommend that at least three representatives from the local community including one from the Town Council work with landowners and developers as part of a multi-disciplinary group having responsibility to safeguard the interests of the existing population”.
