Brown Not Green – Public Meeting on Local Plan

June 5, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

BROWN NOT GREEN
Public Meeting – Wednesday, June 5th at 8pm

At Ley Hill Memorial Hall HP5 3QR
Re: THE COUNCIL’S NEW LOCAL PLAN​
South Bucks and Chiltern District Councils are preparing to publish their Emerging Local Plan. The Local Plan will then be submitted for formal scrutiny by an independent Inspector at a future public inquiry.

Lobbying councillors is now irrelevant and the campaign is now dependant on what legal evidence and planning issues the community can submit to an Inspector.

The Local Plan still includes:
removal of all the land at Lye Green from Green Belt status
(initial) plans for 500 homes, plus a community hub
5,000 sq ft shop
15 gypsy traveller pitches
All this will affect the town of Chesham.

The Council has also only recently announced removal of twelve villages from Green Belt including Botley & Ley Hill. This is disappointing, but our campaign is far from over!

PLEASE COME TO THIS MEETING AND TELL OTHERS WHO MAY BE INTERESTED TO FIND OUT;
WHAT BNG ARE DOING TO PROTECT OUR LOCAL GREEN BELT & THE TOWN
HOW TO MAKE YOUR COMMENTS TO THE INSPECTOR AND WHY YOU SHOULD
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP

The community will shortly have just 6 weeks in which to make final comments on these unsustainable proposals once the Draft Plan is published. This is your last chance to persuade the Council of their folly before we get into the formal consultation/Public Planning Inquiry process.
