I got involved with the formation of Chesham CIC so that we develop a considered plan by the local residents and employers for the community it serves. As opposed to having something imposed from bodies and organisations that don't have to live with the consequences of their policies.
We need to build accommodation suitable for the needs of the next generation and suitable for the needs of our ageing population. At the same time increasing space and desirability for wealth creation activities.
The aim is to have a collaborative approach engaging with all interested parties.
