    Liberal Democrats believe that local people must be able to shape planning and house building in the best interests of their community and the environment.

    A year on from the start of the pandemic, there has been an unprecedented rise in the need for food bank help. The Government put in place schemes to support family finances in the wake of Covid-19, but too many households are falling through the gaps. Vast numbers of people are coming to food banks for the first time in their lives and children left unprotected from poverty and its lifelong effects.

    Chesham & Amersham Liberal Democrats note the passing of our MP, Dame Cheryl Gillan, with great sadness. We send our condolences to her family and many friends.

    Clearly we had differences of political opinion, but all the Liberal Democrats who stood against her at parliamentary elections remember her courtesy and politeness. She was well regarded as 'a good constituency MP' and continued the work of Sir Ian Gilmour in making Chesham & Amersham one of the better-known constituencies.
