Welcome to our site. Here you can find the latest news, information about us, what we are doing and what we are trying to achieve for Beaconsfield.
The Beaconsfield Society aims to conserve, enhance and develop Beaconsfield’s distinctive character for the benefit of present and future residents. We also try to encourage residents to become involved in the community and if you wish to join us we would be delighted to welcome you.
The major issue facing Beaconsfield at the moment is the development at Wilton Park when the Defence School of Languages leaves later in 2014. The basic structure proposed for the development was published by South Bucks District Council on 17 January in its Draft Supplementary Planning Document and the period for the public consultation is now over. The Society worked with other Community organisations to form a group, Wilton Park Watch, and our submission to South Bucks District Council can be found by clicking on WP Submission in the top right-hand box.
Another issue is the perpetual problem of parking, particularly in the Old Town. Creative proposals have been developed involving a land swap between the Hall Barn Estate and SBDC and there was a Consultation Event held on 19 February. The Council provides details of the proposals on its website which you can access by clicking on Parking. Comments on the proposals are invited until the consultation period finishes on 21 March.
2014 will see commemorations throughout the country of the centenary of the start of WWI and the Beaconsfield Society will be holding its own on 12 April with a performance of Behind The Lines, a World War One anthology about what they thought at home and what they knew at the Front.
Our annual flagship event is Beaconsfield Now! and the date to note is Saturday 14 June 2014. See News and Events for more information.
