Introduction

The Missendens Community Partnership(MCP)area includes the Parishes of Great Missenden (including Ballinger Common, South Heath, Prestwood, Heath End and Hyde End) and Little Missenden (including Hyde Heath, Little Kingshill and Holmer Green). The Missendens Community Partnership is a local area forum convened by Buckinghamshire County Council and attended by local county, district and parish councillors, along with representatives from Police, Fire and Rescue, and other public and voluntary sector partners. The Missendens Community Partnership meets regularly to discuss local residents' issues and priorities, which then help to make up the Local Area Plan. The MCP uses the Local Area Plan to help guide its activity and how it uses the budget provided to it by Buckinghamshire County Council. The last Local Area Plan for this area highlighted the following priorities:

• Facilities and Activities for young people
• Reduce isolation for older or vulnerable people
• Parking & road safety
• Highways, potholes & pavements
• Support to voluntary organisations

These priorities now need to be reviewed and the MCP would like as many residents as possible to help identify refreshed set of local priorities. Local priorities identified and funded the projects listed below in 2012/2013
