Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
