Other Agencies – Who Does What

Chesham Bois Parish Council (CBPC) serves the residents of the Parish. Like other Parish Councils (or Town Councils if they serve an urban area) it is a statutory body, representing the lowest tier of Local Government, sitting below but independent of District, County and Unitary Councils.
