No benefit to party politics at parish
IN response to your article in the Bucks Advertiser of May 21 on whether Chalfont St Peter Parish Council should be a party political parish council, I am interested to know how having one political party dominating the parish council benefits the village?
Given the large population of Chalfont St Peter, surely it would be more representative to have a diverse group of people from all backgrounds with politically different views.
Neighbouring villages in Gerrards Cross, Chalfont St Giles and Little Chalfont all operate as non-political parish councils and actively encourage local residents to get involved with most elected as Independents.
At this level of local government, there is no logical reason to have political parties involved in decisions which local people can, and should, be making about where they live and work.
