Just got a flyer through the door from Paradigm about a development they are planning to build at Amersham Town Football club for a residential care facility.
There is a public consultation next Thursday 26th in the Flint Barn court opposite the church.
I don't understand why a development would be suggested on such highly protected land. Do they know something we don't?
Are they planning to redesignate the AONB and the green belt?
Chip a bit away here, chip a bit away there and soon there will be nothing left.
Yesterday morning (Tuesday 17th) I noticed several clusters of head-height cameras on both sides of the road, between Tesco and the M40. Most were also near pairs of rubber cables across the road that I think are used to monitor traffic.
This morning, workmen seemed to be moving some of them to slightly different positions.
There are no warnings, so I presume it's connected with traffic management rather than speeding, which might imply possible changes (improvements, even?) one day. Maybe.
Also, Amersham has been very poorly served by CD councillors, with appalling attendance records.
Tom Yum is all painted a nice shade of bright yellow with red writing now. It opens 12.00 today. Looking through the window, there was a young couple in there with a young child. The menu outside looks like reasonable prices.

Can anyone recommend a reputable and reasonably priced garage in the area to get my 10 year old car serviced?
Anyone travelling around the south or west of Amersham recently can't fail to have spotted the large scaffold towers and nets strung where overheard power lines cross the road. These are present at least all the way to Iver and up towards Aylesbury.
It's obvious that line replacement is being carried out, but I can't find anything on the UK Power Networks or National Grid websites that relates specifically to this work e.g. what is being done, what the impacts to user might be, how long it's going to last. There is a document from 2010/2011 on the UKPN site referring to the need to upgrade the connections to Aylesbury so I assume it is related to that.
From the effort involved in preparing for work starting I'm presuming this is not going be a quick bit of work.
Anybody know the details, what the chances are of power issues and how long we can expect to be looking at these bits of scaffolding?

Easter Family Fun at Amersham Museum
Amersham Museum is offering a fun-filled programme of family activities this Easter. Bring your children to hunt for Easter eggs, get creative with the Easter activities in our craft cases, or come to a special Create! craft session.
Hunt around the museum for hidden Easter eggs. Inside each Easter egg is a clue to help you find the chick’s nest and the chocolates! The Easter egg trail runs from Saturday 28th March to Sunday 12th April on Saturdays, Sundays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Bank Holiday Monday. There is no additional charge for the trail (after usual admissions).
This Easter there will also be two special Create! craft sessions on Wednesday 1st and Wednesday 8th April. At these you can make an Easter basket, decorate an Easter egg and make an animal mask. Each session costs £1 per child in addition to the normal entrance fee. Throughout the holidays the museum’s craft cases and explorer packs will also be available for children to use.
The Easter events kick off Amersham Museum’s exciting programme of family activities for 2015. Curator Emily Toettcher says “Easter is always a busy time for us and we are offering a wide range of hands-on activities for all the family. Visitors to our web site at www.amershammuseum.org can find the programme or regular as well as special events throughout the year.”
It is ugly and placed without any thought or consideration.
I have contacted the planning dept. cdc and have been advised that they objected to this work going ahead in 2011.
Apparently no planning app has been received and I quote" looks like they have just gone ahead"
Anybody with an ounce of sense could have placed it in a better more discrete position.
I am looking for a clasical (Sanish) guitar teacher in the Amersham area.

Lots of coverage this week on BBC, in the Guardian and the Mail.
This BBC article highlights how many big names use alternative "small" brands for various marketing reasons...
