Wendover Parish Council is consulted on some planning applications by Buckinghamshire Council (BC). The Planning Committee meet up to twice per month to consider applications within the deadline set by BC. Agendas for these meetings set out which applications are being considered for comment by the Parish Council and are published on this website as well as the noticeboards in the village. WPC only receives those applications BC wishes them to consult on. The Parish Council has no authority over the final decision and can only make a comment to either support, remain neutral or object to the application.

WPC can only comment on “Material Considerations” such as:-

  • Overlooking/loss of privacy

  • Loss of light or overshadowing

  • Parking

  • Highway safety

  • Traffic

  • Noise

  • Effect on listed building and conservation area

  • Layout and density of building

  • Design, appearance and materials

  • Government policy

  • Disabled persons’ access

  • Proposals in the Development Plan

  • Previous planning decisions (including appeal decisions)

  • Nature conservation
