‘Fan­tas­tic re­sponse’ cre­ates vi­sion for Bea­cons­field

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

SOLV­ING park­ing prob­lems, im­prov­ing park­ing fa­cil­i­ties and stop­ping overde­vel­op­ment are among the pri­or­i­ties high­lighted in a com­pre­hen­sive re­port on the fu­ture of a town.

In re­cent months, peo­ple liv­ing in Bea­cons­field have con­trib­uted their views to the Vi­sion for Bea­cons­field group, on how they would like to see the town grow an im­prove in the years to come.

This week, Vi­sion for Bea­cons­field has pro­duced a 200 page re­port, col­lat­ing all of those views and how they could po­ten­tially be im­ple­mented.

The re­port is set to be pre­sented at a meet­ing of the town coun­cil tonight (Thurs­day, July 23), with coun­cil­lors then set to con­sider the ideas in the doc­u­ment dur­ing the sum­mer break.

Pete Foster, a mem­ber of Vi­sion for Bea­cons­field, said: “The re­sponse has been fan­tas­tic, we've had thou­sands of emails, and mes­sages on Twit­ter with peo­ple giv­ing their views, and ask­ing ques­tions.

“For a small town, it's been huge, and it shows how much peo­ple care about this place and how they want it to have the best pos­si­ble fu­ture.”

He added: “This isn't a town plan, but it is a com­pre­hen­sive re­flec­tion of what is im­por­tant to peo­ple in Bea­cons­field, so it's now up to the town coun­cil to pick this up and con­sider what it is in there and what they want to pick up on.”

More than 1,000 hours of vol­un­teer time and ef­fort has gone into pro­duc­ing the doc­u­ment, with in­put from a num­ber of dif­fer­ent lo­cal, na­tional, gov­ern­ment and ad­vi­sory groups help­ing to shape it.
