At the 18th July Council meeting Cllr Parry Batth acknowledged
the importance of this green space to local residents and said he
had persuaded the Executive to ‘hold this site’ as a
new Council-wide housing strategy is considered. However,
critically, Cllr. Batth did not commit that future development of
the site will not occur and said that this could take
‘… any form, such as leisure, retail or
housing’. He stated ‘… it is not possible for me
to say what future decision may or may not be made by members of
any future administration.’
There is a simple, effective and permanent solution - residents request that WBC enter into a legally binding commitment that will protect Chalfont Woods forever. Precedents exist in Earley, with, for instance, Meadow Park and Sol Joel Park, protected as Fields in Trust.
