Our priorities

Each year we will look at what matters to our local area the most, using data and local intelligence to help us determine the priorities our board will focus on. Some of this information can be found in the Chesham & Villages Public Health Profile. We will involve residents, partners, local groups and organisations in understanding what the local issues and priorities are.

Priorities for 2023 to 2024 are:

  • Championing young people
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Protecting green and blue spaces
  • Supporting development and regeneration
  • Enhancing our villages

These priorities will help us determine where we take action and allocate funding to improve the local area.

Apply for funding

If you have a project that relates to one of the priorities above, you may be eligible for funding.

Action Groups

We take actions on issues linked to our priorities. To do this, we have action groups that bring together board members and representatives from the community and relevant partner organisations.

Action groups identify and discuss issues linked to our priorities, and we consider project ideas and requests for funding linked to these issues.

  • Village Forum
  • Health and Wellbeing

If you're interested in getting involved with one of the action groups or would like to discuss an idea you may have for a project, contact us at [email protected].

Residents who live in Chesham ward can also join their Ward Partnership, to help support priorities identified as part of the Opportunity Bucks programme.

View and report policing issues via the local forum

The Chiltern & South Bucks Policing Issues Forum provides a platform for effective communication between residents and Neighbourhood Policing across the Chiltern & South Bucks Local Policing Area (C&SB LPA).

Their work can also provide insights to the Community Board about policing matters in our area which can help set the local priorities for the Board each year.

View more about the forum and it's work on the Chiltern & South Bucks Policing Issues Forum.
