Raised Wooden Planters – Holmer Green
The Parish Council has repeated the summer planting of the raised wooden beds in Turners Place together with planters at the Village War Memorial and hanging baskets at Rossetti Hall.
Winter planting of the raised beds took place during the Autumn. Donations are always very welcome for this as our funds are limited. If residents or groups would like to contribute please contact the Clerk on 01494 715429 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
HS2 and the Parish Council
The Parish Council has been active in opposing HS2 from its inception and in putting forward proposals to minimise the effect on the Parish.
The plan approved by Parliament has one site in the Parish – the Little Missenden Vent shaft. We anticipate that traffic issues during construction will have the most effect on residents, particularly on the A413, and are watching closely for the final proposals to be reached with Bucks County Council. We are also concerned about the potential effects on the River Misbourne and Shardeloes Lake from this work.
A useful website to find out what is going on is http://www.hs2amersham.org.uk/index.html?Resources/Geology/170802.html

Dog Fouling/Litter/FlyTipping/Abandoned Vehicles
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.
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.
Litter continues to be an ongoing problem. We implore you to use the bins provided or if none are immediately available please take your litter home. Graffiti and litter dropping can be reported online at: http://www.chiltern.gov.uk/article/6916/Anti-social-behaviour and http://www.chiltern.gov.uk/article/6918/Graffiti or contact the Parish Office on 01494 715429.
Community led Regular Litter Pick Days are encouraged and dates will be published on this website.
To report Fly Tipping please contact Chiltern District Council on 0845 330 1856 or online at:
To report an abandoned vehicle please use the Chiltern District Council link below.

Hedges or Trees Overhanging the Public Highway
Transport for Buckinghamshire (TfB) on behalf of Buckinghamshire County Council, would remind home and land owners that it is their responsibility to keep the highway free from overhanging trees, shrubs and overgrown bushes etc.
Landowners must ensure that there is no obstruction or partial obstruction to the footway or carriageway. TfB regularly makes inspections and also receives reports regarding obstructions on the highway. If you are notified, TfB would ask that you arrange to have any obstruction cut back within 14 days.
Should you be unable to complete the work by the end of this period of notice, TfB may arrange for the work to be carried out and may claim reimbursement from the landowner for reasonable expenses following completion of the works, in accordance with Section 154(4) of the Highways Act.
Thank you for your co-operation in this matter and please do not hesitate to contact 01296 382416 to discuss this further should you wish and also, if needed, how TfB may be able to assist you in carrying out these works.
