Chiltern District Council, with the support of Amersham Town Council, is proposing to build a fantastic new leisure and community facility in Amersham. In order to make room for the new design and further protect green spaces in the town, both councils are proposing a ‘land swap’.

In return for building on a small part of the King George V playing field which is currently owned by Amersham Town Council (ATC), Chiltern District Council (CDC) would transfer The Green in Woodside Close to the Town Council, protecting the land as open space through a Fields in Trust dedication.

The land swap will also result in the historic barn buildings being set in additional areas of green space, enhancing their appearance for the future.

Both councils are in full agreement with the land swap proposal, which offers a higher level of protection against any future development for Woodside Close.

From today, (Monday 26th March 2018), public notices from both Chiltern District Council and Amersham Town Council are being displayed on each site until 20th April.
