Public Inquiry – Footpath through Donkey Meadow

A PUBLIC INQUIRY is to be held on Wednesday 25th November in the Bernard Hall to make a final and binding decision on the footpath through Donkey Meadow becoming a public right of way.  “Definitive Map Modification Order” (to show a path from Public Footpath No 10B Lower Winchendon to Pubic Footpath 3 Upper Winchendon).

This path was closed by Robert Spencer-Bernard in 2010, but efforts have been made by residents of Nether Winchendon and Cuddington to have the path re-opened.  Submissions were made by these residents to Bucks County Council, and in due course the BCC Rights of Way Committee found in favour of the path becoming a public right of way.  Mr Spencer Bernard appealed against this, and there is now going to be a Public Inquiry.

When evidence was originally taken, BCC asked only for people who had used the footpath for 20 years or more to make submissions.  This limited the number of potential witnesses.  It now appears that this is not a requirement and that anyone who has used this footpath, believing it to be a public right of way, is able to submit evidence to the Inquiry.  The more evidence that can be submitted the more likely it is that the Inquiry will find in favour of re-defining this footpath’s status, and thus open it up for future use by walkers.

If you have not yet done so, but now wish to complete a User Evidence Form, please contact Angela Sanderson for a form (which is simple to complete) and return by mid-September so that they can be submitted for evidence well in time for the Inquiry.

If you do not wish to submit a form, but would like to attend the Inquiry on 25th November, again – please contact Angela so that a list of attendees from Cuddington to the relevant authorities can be submitted.

Best Kept Village Competition – Cuddington Wins Again!

Cuddington has once again won the Morris Cup for the best kept village in Buckinghamshire with a population of between 500 and 1,500.  The runner-up in this category was Castlethorpe near Milton Keynes.

Our village also has the added honour of being selected for the Savills’ sponsored Community Award.

Competition chairman Richard Pushman commented: “There was a record number of entries this year, standards were high in all the competing villages and I congratulate all our winners and runners-up.

“The judges were very impressed with the general upkeep and absence of litter.  Almost all the entries displayed much evidence of good community spirit with numerous activities and community enterprise.  Cuddington is a worthy winner of the Community Award.  In particular, the Cuddington Picture House, run by volunteers, is an ambitious community project which has been a great success.  Oving too deserves congratulations.  Although not a Best Kept Village winner, Oving’s new village hall has been a tremendous achievement for the village.”

Locally, Haddenham won the Pushman Cup which is awarded to large villages with a population of over 3,000.

The judges look for well kept open spaces, community facilities and evidence of community involvement.
