Welcome to Longwick-cum-Ilmer Parish Council’s Website, we hope that you find this a useful and informative source of information about the parish.
Longwick-cum-Ilmer Parish Council serves the villages of Longwick, Ilmer, Owlswick, Little Meadle and part of Horsenden. It was first formed in 1934, before that time the civil parish boundaries in this area were the same as the existing ecclesiastical parishes of Princes Risborough, Monks Risborough, Horsenden and Ilmer The parish covers a total area of 1,228 hectares, and lies within the Icknield Ward of Wycombe District Council and Buckinghamshire County Council.
There are seven Members of the Parish Council plus the Clerk and between us we have a wide range of experience ranging from people who have lived in this area all their lives to those who have only been in the area for a few years.
The Parish Council is involved with planning applications, roads and footways, public footpaths, bridleways and regional and government decisions affecting the community, we enter into discussions, confer and can forward our objections or support to decisions taken at District and County level.
The playing field in Longwick is the responsibility of the Parish Council and we are responsible for overseeing the maintenance of this area and supplying the children’s play equipment.
The Parish Council meets once a month in Longwick Village Hall and meetings usually last about two hours. The first ten minutes are available for the public to express their view or ask a question on relevant matters on the agenda and they are welcome to stay and observe the rest of the meeting.
Longwick-cum-Ilmer Parish Council is trying to make the community a good place to live and work and free from crime by consulting with Neighbourhood Watch, and all the other voluntary organisations within the villages.
The Parish is also represented on Buckinghamshire Council and Bucks County Council community committees.
