  • Pavement Bellingdon Road
    Article: Dec 2, 2020

    Pavements in Chesham have been particularly neglected. We have discovered that this one isn't even on the list for major resurfacing in the next 8 years!!! We don't know why previous County councillors ignored it when prioritising repairs. It's a very busy pavement, used by many people. We are trying now to get it upgraded.

    By the time the December yourChesham comes out, we should be just about to end our second lockdown. Let's hope it will be the last, but who knows?

    We desperately want to be able to meet family and friends over Christmas, but don't want to send coronavirus cases through the roof all over again.

    A vaccine may be coming to our rescue, and soon. There is even talk that the Pfizer vaccine may be available for the most vulnerable people by the end of the year. But we can't bank on that, and we certainly can't afford to slacken off our efforts to control the pandemic. Even if the vaccine does turn out to be safe and effective, it will take time to get really large-scale vaccination under way. In the meantime, Britain has now passed the 50,000 deaths mark, the first country in Europe to do so.

    Christmas this year will be different! But it will still be Christmas. As a Muslim, I mark the celebration of the birth of Jesus (Prophet Isa, PBUH).

    Jesus (PBUH) is central to Christianity and all my Christian friends, but he is also special to Muslims the world over. He was one of our beloved prophets and the Quran tells the story of his birth to Maryam (Mary), though under a palm tree rather than in a manger.

    The Chiltern and South Bucks Local Plan has now sunk without trace. The formal inspection was postponed because of the lockdown, but in the meantime the inspectors suggested it should be withdrawn because it ignored the councils' duty to help meet Slough's housing needs.

    The new Buckinghamshire Council is now starting to put together a plan for the whole of Bucks, so attention will turn to that, and the Chiltern and South Bucks Plan has been withdrawn. Arguments over the need for new houses and protecting the green belt and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are set to continue. Lib Dem Councillor Peter Jones recently urged the Buckinghamshire Council Cabinet to pay attention to Chesham's Masterplan, which received large public support when it was unveiled three years ago but has since been largely ignored.
