Wendover Parish Council is the fundamental tier of local government in the parish. The parish is situated in the administrative area of Aylesbury Vale District within the County of Buckinghamshire.
Members of the public are very welcome to attend any of its meetings and are given the opportunity to make comments and observations during the period set aside for public participation.
The Council decides on its projects for the coming financial year, works out the cost (precept) and informs Aylesbury Vale District Council of the amount it will need to raise through the Council Tax.
Wendover Parish Council employs staff to look after our recreation grounds in Hampden Meadow, Rope Walk Meadow & Orchard, Ashbrook (Castle Park) as well as Witchell Meadow. In addition to this they also keep the allotments on Hogtrough Lane and London Road tidy and maintain Hampden Pond. Our grounds staff are also responsible for making sure that our play areas are safe.
