History of
Little Chalfont

Little Chalfont is situated in the county of Buckinghamshire, on the edge of the Chiltern Hills and about 30 miles from central London.
The Metropolitan Railway reached Little Chalfont in 1889. However, the village didn't really develop until the 1920's when land was released for housing to become part of Sir John Betjeman's "Metroland".

The present population is around 6000. The station is served by London Underground Metropolitan line and by Chiltern Railways resulting in excellent transport to and from London;  Marylebone station can be reached in little over 30 minutes.

The village has a post office and a building society as well as a pharmacy, a Tesco Express and about 30 other shops. There are three dental practices, a doctors surgery and an optician. There are many places to eat including Chinese, Indian and  Italian restaurants. The ‘Sugar Loaf’ public house and the White Lion Inn both serve food.
There are two Primary Schools plus Dr. Challoner’s (Girls) High School.
There are three churches; Anglican, Methodist and Roman Catholic.  

The Village Hall is centrally positioned next to the library.
A major employer is GE Healthcare with three sites in the Village including its world headquarters.
The head office of ‘The Entertainer’, a large toy retailer, is situated in the village.
Little Chalfont became a separate Parish in 2007 following a poll of local people who overwhelmingly voted in favour. The new Parish comprises the old Little Chalfont ward of Amersham Town Council plus what was previously the northern part of Chalfont St. Giles.

Have your say on transport in Buckinghamshire

As Bucks County Council start to develop the new Local Transport Plan for Buckinghamshire, they would like to hear your views on transport related matters. What is important to you? To share your views they have developed an app which allows you to have your say in a quick and easy way.  

The app will be available from 24 August–
6 Sept. 2015 and can be accessed via this link

Within the app you are provided with 100 points to allocate to issues that are most important to you.  

Your views will then be considered when developing the new transport plan, which will set out our approach to transport across Buckinghamshire.  

Buckinghamshire is a growing county, with more people and businesses. This means more people will be moving around the county. Combined with falling central government funding, this means the plan will have to make some difficult choices. We need to understand your priorities, so the plan makes choices that work for you.
