Our Chesham regeneration plans

Chesham is the third largest town in Buckinghamshire and features:

  • multiple excellent schools including schools rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted
  • active community groups
  • cultural and historic amenities

It has direct links to a variety of Chiltern walks, ancient woodlands and the River Chess.

The town is home to over 1,200 businesses, collectively supporting over 6,500 jobs.

Chesham Regeneration Strategy

A local Chesham Regeneration Group is in place to work on this strategy and will support the Regeneration sub-board of the Growth Board. Establishing and delivering the regeneration programme for Chesham requires a collaborative, partnership approach.

The Chesham Regeneration Group members include Buckinghamshire Council Councillors and external partners from key stakeholder organisations. The group reviews its Terms of Reference and refreshes the membership on an annual basis. The current membership is:

Buckinghamshire Council

  • Councillor Rachael Matthews (Chairman)
  • Councillor Gareth Williams

Town Council (Committee)

  • Councillor Simon Booth

Our other representatives

  • Chesham Town Council Representative – Louise Steele (Clerk)
  • Community Representative – Tony Molesworth (Chesham Renaissance)
  • Business Representative - Andy Garnett (Chamber of Commerce)
  • Private Sector Business – Harold Rothman (Silverson)
  • Community Board Representative - Ross Tackley
  • Arts and Culture Representative – Karen Perkins (Chesham Museum)


Along with Chesham Town Council and other stakeholders, we are considering multiple projects.

These support the principles of the Chesham Regeneration Strategy and include:

  • a Neighbourhood Plan (in collaboration with Chesham Town Council)
  • public routes and wayfinding opportunities to be better signposted to residents and visitors (in particular around the Underground Station)
  • active and sustainable travel project
  • The Lowndes Park Masterplan and play equipment
