Padbury Parish Council would like to acknowledge the following organisations and thank them for their financial support by awarding grants for some of the works carried out to complete the extension and refurbishment of Padbury Pavilion:

Buckinghamshire Council Community Boards

The National Lottery Community Fund

Bee Green Grant Fund


The opening of the pavilion will take place on Monday 20th May from 6pm – 8pm. All residents are welcome to attend. This will be combined with the Annual Parish Meeting.

The Annual Parish Meeting is a meeting for residents to update them on what’s happening in the village with reports from village organisations.

This event will give residents an opportunity to have a first look around the building. We expect that several village groups will be in attendance. There will be a brief period of parish business at the start.

Neighbourhood Plan

A neighbourhood plan for Padbury?

In the December/January edition of the Padbury Pump the Parish Council set out what a neighbourhood plan is and how it is produced.

To recap, a neighbourhood plan:

· sets out planning policies for the neighbourhood area – which, in conjunction with county-wide policies, are used to decide planning applications in the village.

· is written by the local community, the people who know the area, rather than Buckinghamshire Council.

· Is a tool to assist the community to get the right type of development in the right place.

The article included details of three sites in Padbury where developers have already indicated they would like to build at some point in the future.

Although neighbourhood plans have to be initiated by a ‘qualifying body’, which includes a Parish Council, this does not mean that Padbury Parish Council has to or can do all the work. The view of the council in that article was that a neighbourhood plan is a community effort and needs to be produced by the residents of the village. A range of skills is required, for example in drafting surveys, raising funds, report writing, planning law etc. The council considered that a working group of at least 10 people was needed so that all the work did not fall on a few people.

The article called for volunteers and thank you to the two residents who did put their names forward. However, in view of this response, at its February meeting, the council decided that it would take no further action about a neighbourhood plan. If more people do come forward then this can possibly be reconsidered.
