News (mostly) from the local Liberal Democrats

  • Eskdale Avenue c. 1920
    Article: Apr 20, 2019

    Lib Dem councillors are trying to get roadside trees replaced after they were felled in a number of Chesham roads. But Tory councillors on the Town Council and County Council are more interested in fighting each other about who knew the trees were going to be felled and which council will pay for replacements.

    Above: Peter Jones has been a consistent opponent of HS2. Here he is speaking at the Liberal Democrat conference in Brighton a few years ago.

  • Success! New trees planted in Stanley Avenue
    Article: Mar 24, 2019

    Some good news! Two new trees have now been planted in Stanley Avenue, replacing large trees which had to be felled last year because the roots were badly damaging the pavement.

    When the old trees were removed, Lib Dem campaigner, Michele Christensen, who lives in the road, consulted other residents and found overwhelming support for replanting. Alan Bacon then had a site meeting with the local highway technician and County Councillor Patricia Birchley, and Cllr Birchley kindly agreed to fund replacement trees from her county council Community Leaders' Fund. The new trees are rowans and shouldn't grow too big or damage the pavement.
