The trustees of the Pitstone Town Lands Charity are reviewing the accommodation they currently own. The charity owns a large building on Cheddington Road which was converted from two houses into four flats in the mid 1960s. However, the properties are considerably older than this, having originally been built in the 19th century. The trustees are exploring ways of improving the quality of this accommodation and whether they can attract additional grants or use the land around the flats or other assets to provide more modern facilities and possibly additional flats.
They would like to hear from local people about whether and how this would benefit them. The charity can only support people with a strong Pitstone connection. At the Party in the Park in July, the trustees began a consultation and are inviting people to make comments or suggestions and to answer these questions:
- how are you connected to Pitstone?
- do you wish to be considered if one of the one bedroom flats becomes available for rent? If so, what are your current living circumstances?
- have you or a family member from Pitstone had to leave the area in order to obtain affordable rented accommodation?
- do you consider yourself to be in need of any other type of accommodation in Pitstone which could be provided by a charity established to support Pitstone people in genuine need? If so, what type of accommodation would that be?
- what is your age group?
