Thank you to those residents living in Bois Moor Road and Hodds Wood Road who responded to our recent play area survey.

Following the success of the WCA-led refurbishment of the Gordon Road play area last year, the Association have looked at other play areas in Waterside, those in Bois Moor Road (on the way to Chesham Bois) and also Hodds Wood Road. Both of these play areas are managed by Chesham Town Council and were earmarked for closure.

The survey results clearly showed that residents want to keep and improve the play area in Bois Moor Road. There was less support for the smaller play area in Hodds Wood Road.

Waterside Community Association has reached agreement with Chesham Town Council to keep the Bois Moor Road play area open, whilst they fundraise to replace the current equipment and even increase the size of the play area.  The Hodds Wood play area will be closed.

If you would like to be involved in the fundraising to improve the play area at Bois Moor Road, or have any ideas, please contact the WCA Chairman, Shane Willmoth – shane@wcassoc.co.uk

Bois Lane, Chesham Bois is to be closed between Woodside Avenue and Stubbs Wood, from Saturday 31 March until Sunday 15 April to allow work to replace a water main. National Grid may also be working on the same section of road.

Please note: This will affect bus services in the area. Services 71 & 73 will not be allowed through the works and will need to operate to the temporary timetable which you can access by clicking Bus Diversions.

Below is a summary of the information sent to Cllr Peter Hudson. This details the changes to bus routes in the area which will affect Waterside residents.

Thanks for sharing this with us, Peter.


Journeys from Chesham Broadway to Penn Street or Little Chalfont should divert as follows;

  • JOURNEYS NOT VIA CHESHAM MOOR

from Chesham Broadway, normal line of route to Red Lion Street, continue ahead at the Waterside roundabout, continue up the hill along the A416 Amersham Road, left into North Road, right into Glebe Way, to Anne’s Corner, and then normal line of route.

Vice versa for the return journeys.

  • JOURNEYS VIA CHESHAM MOOR

from Chesham Broadway, normal line of route to Red Lion Street and left into Waterside, (via Pheasants Rise if timetabled to do so), right into Bois Moor Road, left into Cresswell Road, back to Moor Road, left into Moor Road, left on to the A416 Amersham Road, left into North Road, right into Glebe Way, to Anne’s Corner, and then normal line of route.

Vice versa for the return journeys. Note – Journeys heading towards Chesham and operating via Chesham Moor will need to use Waterside to go to Chesham Moor because of the “No Entry” along Moor Road. Having turned at Cresswell Road they will again need to use Waterside to ensure the Chesham bound stops are served.

  • The turning point for journeys terminating/turning at Chesham Moor will be Cresswell Road. Buses should pull into Cresswell Road and then turn by reversing into Appletree Walk. The timetable should only allow sufficient time to turn the bus and head back. However, if you do need to wait please do so in Cresswell Road and not in Bois Moor Road where it can be very congested.

Journeys from Chesham Broadway to Chesham Moor/Pheasant Rise should operate as follows;

  • SHORT WORKINGS TO/FROM CHESHAM MOOR

from Chesham Broadway, normal line of route to Red Lion Street and left into Waterside, (via Pheasants Rise if timetabled to do so), right into Bois Moor Road, left into Cresswell Road.

Vice versa for the return journeys.

  • The turning point for journeys terminating/turning at Chesham Moor will be Cresswell Road. Buses should pull into Cresswell Road and then turn by reversing into Appletree Walk. The timetable should only allow sufficient time to turn the bus and head back. However, if you do need to wait please do so in Cresswell Road and not in Bois Moor Road where it can be very congested.

During this period Redline service 76 will not operate the short workings from Chesham Broadway to/from Pheasant Rise. Redline will instead operate service 72 the 09:00 ex Penn Street journey on the temporary timetable.

On November 2nd, 2011, the inaugural meeting of the Waterside Community Association (WCA)  was held to establish an association that would represent the residents of the Waterside area and tackle issues that have been an annoyance to residents for a long time.

In the presence  of over 60 residents, the new WCA Board was voted in and began the meeting to list all the issues faced by residents of the area.  Working together with local authorities, police and residents, the association aims to address concerns such as speeding, anti-social behavior, dog fouling and litter.  A list of the associations projects and aims will be coming soon to the home page.

To contact the WCA or become a member, please email info@wcassoc.co.uk for an application form.
