Vi­sion for Bea­cons­field

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

PETER Foster, press of­fi­cer for Vi­sion 4 Bea­cons­field, which is putting to­gether a town plan:

“We are do­ing a lo­cal plan and ask­ing as many peo­ple to get in­volved as pos­si­ble so we can get some­thing to­gether that re­flects ev­ery­one’s views. We have had 500 to 600 peo­ple, and vol­un­teers, in the work­ing group. We want peo­ple from the New Town, Old Town and Holt­spur to get in­volved and have seen peo­ple from Knotty Green too.

“We re­alise we

have prob­lems unique to Bea­cons­field but we are happy to share our find­ings with the dis­trict.

“We have had sev­eral ideas, from con­ser­va­tion and keep­ing the char­ac­ter of the town to ameni­ties.

“Peo­ple have asked about a theatre, a swim­ming pool, bet­ter park­ing, ways to work with busi­nesses and cre­ate jobs and how to use open spa­ces bet­ter.

“One on Twit­ter was my favourite – the not so sen­si­ble sug­ges­tion of hand­ing over the town plan to Bekon­scot as they are the peo­ple who know how to run a small town!”
