Che­sham Mayor

THERE has been a drive to rein­vig­o­rate Che­sham Town Coun­cil over the last year, in­creased as­pi­ra­tion to look at what can be done lo­cally and a new will­ing­ness to lead on is­sues af­fect­ing our town rather than look­ing to oth­ers to solve our towns’ chal­lenges for us.

As Town Mayor, I strongly be­lieve many ser­vices can be de­liv­ered bet­ter lo­cally and I’m de­lighted the new Town Coun­cil has taken over the du­ties of verge and hedge cut­ting from Bucks County Coun­cil with the ben­e­fit of lo­cal knowl­edge and con­trol.

An ad­di­tional staff mem­ber has been re­cruited to the grounds main­te­nance team to help de­liver these im­por­tant lo­cal ser­vices along­side the val­ued help from the towns many en­vi­ron­men­tal groups, in­clud­ing Che­sham in Bloom, Che­sham En­vi­ron­men­tal Group and the Chiltern So­ci­ety.

It will take a lit­tle time to get fully up to speed with these new du­ties, but I am con­fi­dent in our Town Coun­cil staff and know they will de­liver the high qual­ity ser­vice that Che­sham res­i­dents de­serve.

There are still some verges and hedges in Che­sham cut by other or­gan­i­sa­tions, in­clud­ing Par­a­digm Hous­ing, but if you have any com­ments or want to re­port an area that needs at­ten­tion, please con­tact the Town Coun­cil 01494 774842 or by email ad­min@che­
