AED defibrillator kiosks
10th Jan '16 Both telephone boxes are now operational as AED defibrillator kiosks. The AED’s are housed in a heated cabinet that has a security code. If the AED is required in an emergency call 999 and give the location of the kiosk and you will be given the four digit access code. The Chipping kiosk has been fully refurbished and the PC is looking for a volunteer who will undertake the Buckland kiosk. We have all the materials required. If you would like to give some time for a worthwhile community project please contact Cllr Jeff Jones on 274800.

Launch of Neighbourhood Plan
I hope you have all received a flyer inviting you to a Cheese & Wine Evening at St Andrew Church, Buckland at 7 pm, Sat 14th September to launch a Neighbourhood Plan. I would urge you all to attend for an informative and enjoyable evening that will give you an explanation and information on the proposed neighbourhood Plan for Buckland & Chipping. It must be stressed that this plan is not a Parish Council initiative, although it should be Parish Council led, but a community plan. We will be seeking volunteers on the evening who would be interested in joining a forum to develop the plan. It is imperative for the plan to succeed that the forum is made up of a mix of residents, young and old, businesses, landowners, developers, community groups, who have a keen interest in the future of our villages up to 2013. Once the plan is formulated, approved by East Herts District Council and gone to a referendum, the plan will be a document shaping the future of our neighbourhood. Even if you have no interest in joining a forum we would very much look forward to seeing you all on the evening. If you are unable to attend the evening but would require further information please contact:

What Is A Neighbourhood Plan?
The Government’s Localism Act, given Royal Assent on 15th November 2011, will reform the planning system to give local people new rights to shape the development of the communities in which they live.
A key component of the act introduces a new tier of planning – namely neighbourhood planning. The Government anticipates that neighbourhood planning will allow people to come together to produce a Neighbourhood Plan.
Once a Neighbourhood Plan has been completed it will become part of the Local Development Framework for East Herts. This means that it will be a statutory part of the development plan for the district.
