• Wendover Parish Council

View from the Chair | October

As I write this Wendover is bustling as people enjoy a late warm spell. The pavement cafés that are now a feature of the village are bursting with life and I hope it is helping the businesses that surround them as they strive to recover from the lockdown period.


The Parish Council is very aware of the disturbance that is caused by high speed and high volume motors racing along our bypass. I have in the past attended meetings with our County Councillors and the Deputy Police Commissioner for Thames Valley in an attempt to fix this problem but our efforts have trickled away as these things do. The WPC has resolved to set up a community led working group to look at all of the options and to bring pressure to bear on those with the power to improve the situation for residents. If you’re interested in joining us for this project please contact the Clerk.


One of the results of the WPC’s experience working with the Wardens during lockdown is that we have discovered that while care and support is available it is a fragmented resource. Help is available from many sources and for many things but it’s not clear how it can be accessed. WPC has resolved to work with the community to see if a way can be found to simplify the process. If you’re interested in joining us for this project please contact the Clerk.

Chairman Wendover Parish Council
