Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

KAREN DICK­SON Chal­font St Peter In­de­pen­dent par­ish coun­cil­lir and mem­ber of SENSE4CSP WITH the Lo­cal Plan now at its sec­ond stage of con­sul­ta­tion, Chal­font St Peter is set to lose two valu­able ar­eas from the green belt – 28 hectares at the Na­tional Epilepsy site, and 13 hectares around Winkers.

The Winkers site is be­ing con­sid­ered for 420 more houses, while less is known about what is be­ing planned for the NSE land.

A pub­lic meet­ing is be­ing held on Mon­day night, Novem­ber 21, at 7.30pm at the Gold­hill Bap­tist Church.

This meet­ing is be­ing run by our par­ish coun­cil and SENSE4CSP, and leaflets have been posted through ev­ery door in the vil­lage pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion for the meet­ing and about the col­sul­ta­tion.

Also, Chiltern Dis­trict Coun­cil is run­ning an ex­hi­bi­tion on Satur­day af­ter­noon, Novem­ber the 19, be­tween 2pm and 5pm, at the par­ish coun­cil of­fices, where res­i­dents will be able to see how other vil­lages are, or are not(!), be­ing af­fected.

I know that most of us are prob­a­bly suf­fer­ing from CPF [Con­sul­ta­tion and Protest Fa­tigue], and may be feel­ing com­pletely cyn­i­cal about the worth of any con­sul­ta­tion. Please still make the ef­fort to have your say though – don’t make it any eas­ier for the peo­ple who don’t live in our vil­lage to de­cide our vil­lage’s fu­ture!
