VILLAGE STEWARDS - Would you like to be a volunteer?

Do you have a little time to spare to help maintain our lovely village? Padbury Parish Council is looking for volunteers to become village stewards who would be happy to assist with some maintenance jobs around the village. The cost of materials will be reimbursed by the Parish Council. This would help to reduce Parish Council expenditure (which is part of your council tax). If interested please contact the clerk via email: padburyparishcouncil@gmail.com or telephone: 07961 827302.

THANK YOU


28/04/21 - Padbury Parish Council are pleased to advise that two temporary speed indication displays have now been fitted while we wait for the delivery of our new displays. They have been placed on the A413 and Main Street by Amblers Way.


A413/London Road crossing:

Buckinghamshire Council are finalising plans for the new signal pedestrian crossing on the A413/London Road. This has been made possible due to funding secured from the Section 106 developer contributions. The planned construction is during the school summer holiday period. The scheme’s statutory consultation has now been carried out. 


EWR

Padbury Parish Council has raised concerns with EWR, HS2 and Buckinghamshire Council and will continue to do so. Updates/information are shared during the monthly Parish Council meetings as Cllr John Chilver from Buckinghamshire Council attends our meetings and meetings with both EWR and HS2. In addition, in March, Greg Smith MP for Buckingham chaired a meeting with EWR and a councillor from Padbury attended. Further meetings will be arranged. Also, the damage to the grass verges and Main Street tarmac has also been reported.
