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 two sites in the village.
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.


Threat to Green Belt


The District Council is preparing a Local Plan which will set out policies used to determine planning matters in the period to 2036.

The process includes a review of the green belt and parts of Little Chalfont were identified as areas which might be removed from the green belt to allow for additional housing. The preferred options paper has now been published which shows one large area of the village has been included. The full details can be read on a leaflet which has been distributed to all homes in Little Chalfont.

Urgent - call for funds


We need professional help to continue our fight for the land to remain in the Green Belt and free from development.

Along with other professional advice, we will need to produce our own independent evidence. We seek the community’s support at this juncture by asking for funds, large or small, to be pledged.
