Town Clerk

Unfortunately we are still working on the government guidance which came out a week ago regarding the opening of playgrounds and toilets. We had thought that we would be able to get the relevant risk assessments and signage in place and agreement with insurers by yesterday, but it simply hasn’t been possible.

Part of the issue at Malthouse Square is not Covid related, but is due to anti-social behaviour. We suffered vandalism last weekend involving fences and posts being kicked down. Although we mobilised contractors to fix this by Thursday, when we arrived on site on Friday, further fences had been kicked down. This just slows down access for everyone while we try and sort it out.

We do hope to have most of our play areas accessible with proper signage by next week. As you know, with some equipment, there is little or no ability for us to restrict access to it and so we urge you all to use common sense and to be considerate to other users.

Thank you

We strongly support this idea from the Beaconsfield Society.

I'm not sure we have the same tech savviness to block or restrict, but we certainly endorse the idea of not wanting anonymous or unidentifiable people posting spurious and misleading comments.⚠️A little advanced warning ⚠️- we frequently review out editorial controls on the page and in line with a lot of other pages on Facebook - we are adopting a non-anonymous approach in future. (That's what they call it! 🙂 )
This means any user of our page (either liker or follower) that currently has us listed on their restricted list, or who does not allow messages from us to them - we will shortly be banning those people from using the page in future.

Likes, comments and viewing will be stopped. If you want to participate on the page in future you won't be allowed to remain anonymous any more 🙂

Why are we doing this? It is important that we prevent trolling and spurious comments and do not want to allow people to remain anonymous when making comments or reactions - we encourage debate and we want it to remain civil stop anonymous accounts protects all on the page.

So if you are in that category we will we are allowing time for you to consider what you might want to do.

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”.
