The mission statement of the Chiltern Countryside Group is -
'Preserving the peace of the Chilterns'.
|We value and wish to protect the beauty and tranquility of the Chilterns and the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The Chiltern Countryside Group naturally evolved from the networks of action groups, societies and individuals throughout the Chilterns, in response to the proposed changes to flightpaths set out by the National Air Traffic Service (NATS) in the Terminal Control North Public Consultation Document 2008.
The Chiltern Countryside Group is an independent Action Group with supporters throughout the Chilterns. Whilst we seek to work with other Action Groups & organisations with the same aims, we are not represented by any other campaigning body.
In March 2010 the Chilterns once more become threatened by the High Speed 2 Rail proposals.
|The Chiltern Countryside Group makes every effort to ensure the contents of the Group's submissions and reports are accurate, as dated. The CCG does not accept any liability for the use of their work by others, who should carry out their own independent verification.|
