Wendover Woods Woodland Hub

David thought that you would be interested to know that Wendover Woods was sucessful in securing a £450,000 grant from the HS2 Community & Environment Fund. This grant will benefit the Wendover Woods Recreational Development project by providing a multipurpose recreational centre for people visiting the area. 

"The new building will incorporate a café with 100 indoor covers and outdoor seating for 200 (open to all), an adaptable interpretation space and 23 toilets including fully accessible units. The site currently has a small café which opened in 2006 which caters for 30 indoor covers, a car park with 220 spaces and toilet provision including a temporary toilet unit. It offers car parking, café and toilet facilities for those wishing to access the woodland for walking, cycling and picnicking or more adventurous play such as the Go Ape high ropes experience. The existing café building will be used as an information point and the existing toilet block as a store and pay shelter for the car park once the new hub building is in place."

Chilterns Area of Natural Beauty Survey

David thought you might be interested in a survey which the Chilterns Conservation Board is currently undertaking to gauge the public’s feeling on the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

David said:

"The Chilterns AONB is a landscape treasure, especially for people in Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire. With urban housebuilding at greater density and with significant new development planned for our part of England, the value of the Chilterns AONB to urban populations will grow still further.

"I hope that large numbers of local people will make their views on future of the Chilterns AONB known by completing the short survey published by the Chilterns Conservation Board here."
