SINGLE UNITARY COUNCIL FOR BUCKINGHAMSHIRE
On 1 November 2018 the Secretary of State for the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government – James Brokenshire MP - announced that he has decided to implement, subject to Parliamentary approval, the proposal to replace the existing five councils across Buckinghamshire. This covers Bucks County Council, and Aylesbury Vale, Chiltern, South Bucks and Wycombe District Councils.
This will still require approval by Parliament but if approved will mean that the new Single Unitary Council will be established on 1 April 2020.
Little Missenden Parish Council will endeavour to establish the full implications of this decision upon the Parish and will keep residents informed via this website.
Chiltern House Medical Centre – we need your views
If you are a patient registered at Chiltern House Medical Centre, High Wycombe, then we would like to hear your views on the future of the practice.
NHS Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is working with patients, the staff at the practice and NHS England to develop plans for Chiltern House Medical Centre.
Anyone registered at the practice can complete a survey here https://www.letstalkhealthbucks.nhs.uk/consult.ti/CMHC/consultationHome
Nicola Lester, Director of Transformation at the CCG, said: “We are keen to work with the patients at Chiltern House Medical Centre and use this opportunity to find out what patients would value and what the services could look like in the future.
“We are hoping that as a result of feedback we receive, we will be able to really shape services to suit the needs of patients who use the practice.”
In July of this year, the GP partnership which held the contract to provide primary care medical services at Chiltern House Medical Centre ended. An interim contract was then awarded to Primary Care Management Solutions, to maintain services for registered patients at the practice for up to 12 months. We would reassure patients that this period will allow time for full and thorough planning process to take place before any future changes may be made.

DRAGON COTTAGE SURGERY/CHILTERN HOUSE MEDICAL CENTRE
Additional Update : Please click on the link below :
In light of the recent departure of the Partners at Dragon Cottage and the Chiltern House Medical
Centre, the Chair of Little Missenden Parish Council has made representations to the Clinical
Commissioning Group (CCG) and to the MPs for Amersham & Chesham and High Wycombe
regarding the situation facing residents affected by the sudden closure and the installation of
Primary Care Management Solutions to manage the practice for the next 12 months.
As a Parish Council we unfortunately have no control or authority over the provision of health
services. However, the Chair has expressed the Council’s concern and has asked to be kept informed
regarding the outcome in order to be able to relay any information received to residents via this
We are very concerned that many elderly residents who do not have access to personal
transport will be greatly inconvenienced if the surgery closes. We are also aware that surrounding
surgeries have now closed their books to new patients.
Can you please relay this information to any patients who do not have internet access.
Below are some links which patients may find of some use.

COMMUNITY SAFETY NEWS
Holmer Green LED Street Lighting Update
The Parish Council had a five year rolling programme for replacing street lighting and is pleased to advise that tgis has now been completed under budget..
In 2014 the Parish Council started to convert the lamps in the Street Lights in Holmer Green to LED lights. LED lights are more effective and cheaper to run and maintain.
Some of the concrete columns have been replaced with steel columns and this programme will continue as and when it is deemed necessary.
If any Street Lights are not working please advise the Parish Clerk.
Holmer Green Pond
Residents will have noticed that the Parish Council has carried out substantial work over the past year by cutting back overgrown trees around the Pond. The Village Society has also been involved with clearing undergrowth and together with a donation from Airedale and working with the Parish Council has introduced water plants. The Parish Council will be carrying out maintenance work on a rolling basis on the pond walls with effect from 2019.
All our play areas were inspected by RosPA on 14th May 2018. The resulting reports from the inspection showed that the play areas are all in good condition and with no defects, this is an excellent report and reflects the large amount of time, effort and work that has been spent on the areas in the last 12 months.
Vacant Allotment plots
Throughout the Parish there are a number of allotment plots currently available. Please view our allotments page for more information. If you are interested in renting an allotment please contact the Parish Clerk for details. Telephone: 01494 715429
The Parish Council has, over the past years, installed additional bins for the disposal of dog waste in various places around the Parish. We would encourage dog owners/walkers to use these facilities to minimise the inconvenience to residents especially when using The Commons and Recreation Areas. You are also able to place dog waste in the refuse bins.
Should any resident be aware of the owner of a dog which either fouls the pavement or the green areas above, the matter should be reported to the Environmental Health Department of Chiltern District Council who will take appropriate action or you can report it online at:
AS RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERS WE TRUST THAT YOU WILL MAKE USE OF THESE FACILITIES OR TAKE YOUR DOG WASTE HOME TO DISPOSE OF IN THE CORRECT MANNER.
