Waste a hot topic for councillors first surgery
DISTRICT councillors took part in public discussions on Saturday morning for the first time.
Chiltern District Councillors Caroline Rouse and Des Bray, who both represent Chalfont St Giles, held the surgery in the Community Library.
Nine people turned up over the course of two hours, with many villagers wanting to talk about the proposed waste disposal site on the Amersham Road.
Mr Bray said: “For the first one we were very pleased. In two hours we had 9 people turn up. “Most of them were concerned with the waste transfer station story.
“A couple wanted to know a little bit more about the neighbourhood plan.”
Mr Bray added: “People are happy we’re representing them.”
The councillors plan to hold them every quarter and according to Mr Bray the next one will be at Jordans and Chalfont St Giles.
