The Chalfonts - Local Area
The area includes the parishes: Chalfont St Giles, Chalfont St Peter, Little Chalfont and Seer Green.
The LAF and Community Engagement & Development team agree to local priorities by working with communities, councillors, services, and partners. For most priorities the LAF will help coordinate and move projects forward.
The current priorities for The Chalfonts Local Area are:
- anti-social behaviour (including speeding)
- activities and facilities for young people
- improvement and enhancement of local valued green spaces
- activities for older and/or vulnerable people
- road and footway safety improvements including parking issues
How the local priorities are being addressed
The LAF has addressed its local priorities by funding projects from its local priorities budget. They have agreed to divide funding between the following projects this year (2018/19):
- Seer Green MVAS
- Little Chalfont Bollards Stony Lane/Amersham Road
- Little Chalfont Nature Park Entrance Signs
- Chalfont St Giles Deanway Parking
- Little Chalfont 20mph zone Bell Lane
- Little Chalfont Feasibility Study Cokes Lane
- Chalfont St Giles Narrowing Signage
- Chalfont St Peter Tree Planting
- Chalfont St Peter Conservation Project
- Seer Green Outdoor Gym
Purchased equipment by the LAF has already addressed:
- road and footway safety improvements
- parking issue priority
- speed awareness education
This has included a sentinel community speedwatch camera shared between parishes. This is in use in Latimer and Ley Hill, already recording high speeds in the area. Thames Valley Police, who support the scheme, have spoken to drivers caught speeding.
A number of parishes have been supported to purchase Mobile Vehicle Awareness Signs. Volunteers move these every few weeks to keep drivers on their toes.
The LAF has also funded a programme of minor works change signs, reduce speeds, mark highways and moderate parking.
The 2017/18 End of Year Report shows how local priorities have been addressed over the last 3 years.
