Community organisations, including our own, together with the Beaconsfield Town Council has conducted a wide ranging consultation exercise in order to develop a Vision for Beaconsfield. Its interim conclusions were summarised in a document titled Creating a Better Beaconsfield: Towards a Town Plan for Beaconsfield 2015-2020 which was presented to the Town Council on 23 July. The Council is now considering the proposals and is in process of establishing advisory groups of Councillors and members of the community to study the recommendations in detail.
The Vision for Beaconsfield conclusions can be accessed via the Vision for Beaconsfield website or directly by clicking on Creating a Better Beaconsfield.
