Site Improvements

We have been granted approval for our Planning Application for the Improvements to Wendover Woods Visitor Facilities.

Wendover proposal

Work on the visitor improvements to Wendover Woods has started. We received planning approval on the 10th March for our proposals for a new car park, Café and toilet block, access road, ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) vehicle access system, toddler and all ability play trail.

The first job is to clear the new car park area of trees and the harvester arrived on site on Monday 27th March and has made a good start. Once the trees are down we will extract the timber then take a pause whilst the detailed design is done on the car park and access road, this will be delivered after school holidays. Construction is likely to start after the summer school holidays with an aim for a fully completed and operational site from early 2019.

In the meantime, please continue to visit Wendover Woods and enjoy its many trails, picnic sites and view points and let us know your opinion on the development. You can contact us by email:

The planning application can be found on the Aylesbury Vale Website at The planning reference is 16/03982/APP.
