Our army is defending the landscape…
Increased demand for new housing and commercial property means that development is arguably one of the biggest threats to the Chilterns rural landscape. The growing pressure on our local countryside to cater to these demands is ongoing and requires a tough response.
The Chilterns is made up of a delightful collection of towns and villages, and it’s vital that their unique characters are not jeopardised by ill thought proposals for new housing or extensions to the transport network.
One of the primary aims of our Planning Group is to firmly resist the worst excesses of the development industry wherever it can; while at the same time taking the opportunity to promote high standards of planning and architecture when schemes of merit are submitted for consideration to the local authorities throughout the Chilterns area.
The Planning Group also hopes to stimulate public interest in the beauty, history and character of the Chiltern Hills.
