Looking forward to a vigorous council
RE: Office is needed to cope with workload (Letters, Advertiser, November 27) HAD I not resigned from the parish council, nobody would have known anything about the plans to spend £500,000 on a second building until the purchase was completed.
Following my resignation, the Advertiser ran an article about the proposed [Chalfont St Giles] parish council building and quite a number of people were surprised and against it.
I did not resign to ‘pursue my interests elsewhere’, as Bill Warren stated. I would much rather have remained in the parish council had there been any chance of getting my proposals properly considered and put through, namely a better bus service, the completion of the cycle path, a bench by the Pheasant Hill bus stop and some outdoor gym equipment for adults in the playing fields. It was made clear to me that none of those things would happen.
I stand by what I stated previously, namely that we do not need a full-time clerk and that being a parish councillor is not too time-consuming. I look forward to an effective and vigorous parish council after May.
