Of­fice is needed to cope with work­load

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

Re: ‘Coun­cil of­fice bid fail­ure is a re­lief’, Buck­ing­hamshire Ad­ver­tiser, page 12, Thurs­day, Novem­ber 20. IN your is­sue dated Novem­ber 20, you pub­lished a let­ter from Karoline Lamb re­spond­ing to a most in­for­ma­tive piece by Lor­can Lovett.

The sub­ject was the decision by Chal­font St Giles Parish Coun­cil to with­draw an of­fer made 18 months ear­lier to buy an of­fice build­ing.

The ven­dor had en­coun­tered a se­ries of de­lays in find­ing al­ter­na­tive premises.

We felt that with only six months be­fore the elec­tion of a new coun­cil, it was not right to con­tinue.

We are now seek­ing a short-term rental op­por­tu­nity for an of­fice for the clerk and coun­cil records within the parish bound­ary.

The let­ter from Mrs Lamb con­tains some mis­lead­ing state­ments.

The re­serve ac­cu­mu­lated for parish of­fice ac­qui­si­tion will be passed to the in­com­ing coun­cil.

We are not look­ing for an of­fice beyond the parish bound­ary.

We are not con­sid­er­ing re­tail premises for of­fice use. This would de­plete re­tail trad­ing po­ten­tial. Let­ters to the Ed­i­tor, Buck­ing­hamshire Ad­ver­tiser, Trin­ity Mir­ror South­ern, c/o Trin­ity Mir­ror Colour Print, St Al­bans Road, Wat­ford, Herts WD24 7RG
