ELDERLY people have been given three months to find somewhere else to live, after being told their nursing home is to close.
Residents of Howard House in Vicarage Way, Gerrards Cross, have been told by owners Perseverance Trust that they need to find alternative accommodation by July, and that the home will be closing this summer.
CAMPAIGNERS who are desperate to see a set of traffic lights and road junction changed to improve safety want to be updated on the county council's progress on the issue.
In February, Bucks County Council held a public exhibition at which they presented four options for how to improve the traffic light system and road layout outside Tesco in Packhorse Road, Gerrards Cross.
It followed a survey of nearly 2,000 people carried out last year by a working party on behalf of the parish council which found that nearly 90 per cent of people felt that the layout was dangerous.
A consultation process followed, which allowed people to have their say on the issue, and this has now come to an end.
The working party were promised a meeting with Transport for Bucks after the consultation to find out what people had said and what the most likely outcome will be before any final decision is made, but members of the group are concerned that it has not happened yet.
Working party member Philip Sellers said: "We want to make sure that we have this meeting so that the county council doesn't simply say that they will re-examine the situation in the future.
"We need action to be taken now, so we want to know what people have said and what they county council plans to do about it.
"One of the options they came up with was to simply do nothing, which isn't an option at all, so we are keen to have this meeting to make sure that something is actually done to improve this area for Gerrards Cross."
Other options were to remove the traffic signals in the road, have a priority controlled junction or create a shared space for traffic and pedestrians.
The consultation ran from February 28 until April 8, with people in the area invited to have their say.
Rosemary Bryant, spokesman for Transport for Bucks said: "The online consultation closed on Monday April 8. When the results have been looked at TfB officers will be in touch with working group as discussed at the exhibition."
A CHURCH which owns land which campaigners want to protect from future development says that it will do what is best for the community.
Last week, the Advertiser reported that people living near to an area of woodland adjacent to Lower Road in Chalfont St Peter and Gerrards Cross want to re-classify the site as a village green in order to stop any future development from taking place there.
