Make a pitch for our new town plan

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

RE: Share your views on fu­ture of town (Bea­cons­field Ad­ver­tiser, Novem­ber 20) THANKS for re­port­ing on the new group, which has come to­gether to gather the best ideas for the kind of Bea­cons­field we all want.

Although Vi­sion for Bea­cons­field was brought to­gether by the town coun­cil, we want the group to be com­mu­nity-led. It may in­flu­ence the town coun­cil, and it could also be a start­ing point for oth­ers who want to do things for the com­mu­nity.

We want to write a Vi­sion for Bea­cons­field that can in­spire a Town Plan, and be ready for the coun­cil elec­tions next May.

We we will be at the Fes­ti­val of Lights on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 10 at a stall out­side the town hall from 5.30pm and hand­ing out fly­ers in the high­way. You could write down some of your ideas about the kind of Bea­cons­field that would be an even bet­ter place to live and work in, and pop them into a mes­sage box there.

We are also on­line – at www.vi­sion­for­bea­cons­field.uk – or follow us on Face­book, and leave a mes­sage about what you want to say about Bea­cons­field.

The steer­ing group has been formed by those who have vol­un­teered to take part, who rep­re­sent com­mu­nity lead­ers and business own­ers. We want to reach as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble, who live, work and travel in Bea­cons­field, and en­joy recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties, those who are con­cerned about the fa­cil­i­ties of the town, and the way the town is de­vel­op­ing, for in­stance in Wil­ton Park.

The group aims to set up work­ing groups which can take on the work of writ­ing the Vi­sion for dif­fer­ent as­pects of Bea­cons­field life. So get in touch with us and have your say! And tell us if you want to get in­volved.

DOU­GLAS BUT­TER­FIELD Chair­man, Vi­sion for Bea­cons­field
