Tree Wardens

Buckingham benefits from a number of beautiful green spaces, with considerable areas of woodland, parks and street trees. However, Members of the Planning Committee have grown concerned at the increasing number of fallen trees, despite tree protection orders being in place and being located in the town’s Conservation Area. Members  review the number of fallen trees at each meeting of the Planning Committee and have agreed to publish their findings within the attached report.

River Wardens

As part of a joint project between the Environment Agency and Buckingham Town Council, with £5,000 of Buckinghamshire County Council's Buckingham Local Area Forum funding; the River Wardens will take part in regularly monitoring the River Great Ouse. Monitoring is done in a variety of ways, from photographs and water sampling to river restoration.

River Wardens also meet regularly for information sessions, learning more about the river, its health and how to look after it.

If you are interested in taking part, please contact Ruth via
ruth.coxon@tcv.org.uk.
