How to register for an affordable housing scheme in our Parish
You may be aware that our parish has a small scheme of affordable housing in Newman Close that was built for local people with a strong connection to the parish. From now on, the Parish Council will be maintaining a register of those interested in applying for these properties.
If you wish to be considered for one of these homes, please contact the Parish Clerk for an ‘expression of interest’ form. We will need a few details from you and will pass these on to the Local Authority or Housing Association as and when we are aware of a property becoming available.

Buckinghamshire Council’s Planning Meeting Notes – April 2021:
BUCKS COUNCIL’S PLEA ABOUT SAFE RECYCLING OF BATTERIES:
WHO TO REPORT WHAT TO:
Please always give an exact location (nearest residence) and a photo would speed things up!
Please email clerkwhitchurchaylesb
with details, exact location and if the post has a (white, but NOT yellow) number eg MP1, please quote that.
The parish council will then pass the information on to the council’s contractor.
Overhanging Trees, Hedges, and Foliage
Just a reminder that any overhanging foliage on to adjoining footpaths can be a danger to pedestrians walking past. In some cases, the foliage could block the vision of car drivers emerging from neighbouring properties.
Residents have a duty to ensure that their property does not present a danger to others, so please look at your front, and in some cases, your rear garden boundaries to ensure that your beautiful and admired bushes, shrubs, and trees are not over hanging and presenting a danger to others.
The parish council does get reports of offending foliage etc. Once it does the problem area will be inspected and, if needed, a letter will go to the resident requesting that work is undertaken to cut back the offending foliage. To prevent a visit or letter please check your boundaries and cut back any foliage that is encroaching on to the pathway or roadway. This applies to fallen leaves, pine needles etc, that will need to be swept up to keep the pavement clear.
Please report toTransport for Bucks for clearing. Again, when reporting blocked drains please give the details of the house that they are closest to, with a description of the problem and photos if possible.
There are certain issues that are not the responsibility of the parish council but fall under the remit of Buckinghamshire Council and so they should be informed if there is a problem. The preferred method for reporting favoured by Buckinghamshire Council is to report it on the fixmystreet website – www.fixmystreet.com – the issue will then be allocated to the appropriate department.
Overhead Power Cable Problems – please stand well clear if there are sparks! Report to
