Wooburn & Bourne End Parish Council
We are still having issues with the new website, if you have any questions please contact the council office.
Welcome to the Wooburn and Bourne End Parish Council website. Please note that the necessary move from our historical WDC-hosted website was delayed by the Covid-19 situation and we are still working on several areas which need to be updated or completed.
Corona virus – please follow the link below for latest advice and information
To comply with Government advice on social distancing and non-essential journeys, the
Parish Council offices are still closed to the General Public until further notice.
The Cemetery has now re-opened for visitors, however Social distancing rules must be adhered to.
Council meetings - Virtual Council meeting via Zoom which the public can attend, will continue until further notice. Meeting details will be published nearer the time.
Annual Parish Meeting - The annual Parish meeting has been postponed until social distancing rules allow. In the meantime an Annual report is under preparation which will be published as soon as possible.
Neighbourhood Development Plan
Prior to the implementation of the social distancing “lock down” we had planned to start a formal process of local consultation on the latest draft of the Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) and had sent out a leaflet to notify residents of this. It appears that the leaflet has only just been delivered and is causing some confusion for which we apologise. Due to the current "lock down" we are unable to comply with a condition of the process - we are therefore continuing with the consultation on an informal basis... All comments will be reviewed and if they should result in any changes these will be incorporated in a Fourth Draft which will become the pre-submission draft to the Planning Authority. We encourage Residents to read the draft NDP which can be found on the webpage tab above.
Parish Council – ongoing operations and activities

Sapper’s field sinkhole
As most people are aware, Sapper's field was closed to the public when a sinkhole appeared on 29th February 2020 which quickly grew to a diameter of 30 feet by 140 feet deep. We immediately engaged experts to survey the sink hole to advise options to mitigate the dangers, then to survey the whole field as there was a risk there may be others.
The two Sappers Field survey reports and the Notification from our Parish Council Chairman are published under the NEWS heading above. The reports confirm that Sappers Field is unsafe. We ask the Public to respect the signs and stay out of the field. Any unauthorised persons entering the field do so at their own risk; they are not covered by any Parish or Buckinghamshire Council insurances.
