Alastair Pike

Alastair Pike moved to Beaconsfield in 1989 and has run a retail business in the Old Town since 1993. Some years ago he warned against the long term impact of increasing traffic movement and is keen to see the introduction of a vehicle weight limit in London End.

He is also certain that without parking regulations traditional retail businesses will fail to keep pace with rising costs and ultimately disappear.  As a prominent member of the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce (he is currently President for the Buckinghamshire area) Alastair is very aware of the need to balance the needs of residents and local businesses whether they be

retailers or professionals. If there is to be any long term growth in the community he believes it is crucial for all parties to make the effort to understand and work alongside each other.
