About the Chesham Society

The Chesham Society is the local amenity Society for Chesham town and the surrounding parishes of Chartridge, Cholesbury-cum-St Leonards, Ashley Green, Latimer and Chesham Bois. We are a voluntary group of people who care for the Chesham area.

Formed in 1957, we are a registered charity, a member of Civic Voice and a founder member of the Association of North Thames Amenity Societies and the Town Council Environmental Group. We are not political and cooperate with other groups working for the good of the town and act as a forum for debate. The Chesham Society monitors local planning schemes and applications, and encourages debate to ensure that the interests of local people are properly heard; see this page for information about the Chiltern District Local Plan, and the Societies response to the last consultation.

The society is also involved with the new Chesham Community Interest Company, formed to promote our Vision for Chesham.

We welcome as members all local residents, with or without professional skills, who would like to learn about, discuss, or help to develop, ideas and schemes to protect and improve whatever is best in Chesham. We have no political bias. The Chesham Society's aim is to promote the highest standards in planning, design, building and restoration, use of materials and other matters, appropriate to the Town and its people.
