Town Clerk

This evening our Christmas Lights went on throughout the town. Unfortunately, corona means that we couldn't hold our usual event and fair, so instead we had a Virtual Switch-On - you can watch it on You Tube <a href="https://youtu.be/3pch9DCg7do">here</a>

Thank you to the Mayor, Alex Dunlop, to Jeannette Buckle our project manager who makes the lights happen, to Therese Cooklin from Beaconsfield Together for putting in so many hours and skills and to everyone who took part in making this happen.

And although our singer, Kerri Layton, couldn't be with us in person, she's offered us her Christmas EP to download for free. Link <a href="http://LINK - www.kerrilaytonmusic.com/free-christmas-e-p">here</a>

Merry Christmas Beaconsfield!

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”.
