Using Our Common and Woodland
The Parish Council wishes to see the Common and Woodland well used, including for community events.
The Common and surrounding woodland is currently used for the Village Fete and Picnic on the Common.
Chesham Bois Parish Council has registered a ten-year Woodland Management Plan with the Forestry Commission of England to improve the public amenity of the Common and other woodlands for which it is responsible. The Plan also aimed to enable Forest Schools to use public areas for educational purposes, for which a licence is required.
The Parish Council is therefore delighted to have agreed a licence for Heatherton House School to use Common Land for its Forest School activity. Please read the news post (12th January 2022).
Berkhamsted Schools Group, of which Heatherton is part, will also help maintain the woods as part of the license agreement.
