Opening of play areas in our parks. The Parish Council has continued reviewing the situation regarding the pandemic and infection rates. We are now of the opinion the risk has reduced sufficiently for us to re-open the Play Areas. The infection rates in this area are now below the National Average and we believe the benefit of play outweighs the risk.

We will revert to disinfecting all play equipment once a day, seven days a week but obviously safety is dependent upon the public's adherence to the Government's safety guidelines.Closing the play areas was not an easy decision to make and we are pleased to be able re-open them. Safety of our staff and the public is paramount and we will continue to closely monitor progress.

The Cemetery-Is open for visitors, however Social distancing rules must be strictly adhered to at all times.

Council meetings- We continue to hold Council meetings via the Zoom platform for the foreseeable future which the public can attend. Meeting details available from the Clerk.

Neighbourhood Development Plan progress

The version of the plan with its Appendices which is on the website is the3rd Draft which wasready for public consultation in March 2020. Unfortunately, this plan became a victimofCOVID-19 and the public consultation had to be postponed to comply with government regulations. Also, we received guidance from Bucks Council after it had reviewed the 3rd Draft, that specific amendments to the content/format would assist its progress through the Independent Inspection process, which cannot start before May 2021.
The positive outcome of the delay is that it has given us an opportunity to update the plan and the 4th Draft is scheduled to be available for local public consultation in March/April 2021before going to the Bucks and Independent stages in May.
In the meantime, if you have any questions or comments our Clerk would be very happy to hear them.

Wooburn Guide

Sapper’s field sinkhole

The field remains closed to the public as the sinkhole which appeared back in February 2020, quickly grew to a diameter of 60 feet wide by 140 feet deep and is an ongoing issue. We have been seeking expert advice to survey the sinkhole to advise options to mitigate any dangers and to survey the whole field, as there is a risk there may be others. In the meantime, we would ask the public to respect the signage and stay out of the field as we do not know if the sinkhole is stable or whether other parts of the field are safe. More details of the reports we have received can be found under the above News tab.

PLEASE NOTE : As a result of the timing of "going to press", the attached Parish Guide brochure, on page 13, mentions our previous MP's name. Our new MP is Joy Morrissey contactable via...joy.morrissey.mp@parliament.uk
