Recreation Ground

The Parish Council is trustee of the Rec, an open space to the east of the village used for sports and leisure activities, and the home of Wing football, tennis and bowls clubs. Dogs may be let off the lead, but owners must keep them under control and pick up any fouling. The Rec is available for private events, free of charge.

Jubilee Green

Dogs must be kept on a lead and owners must pick up any fouling. Available for private events, free of charge.

Environment

Keeping our village clean and tidy and presentable, from prevention of dog fouling, litter and fly-tipping, to landscaping, and maintaining planters and flowers.

Planning

Parish Councils have no planning powers but we do comment on applications to reflect the views of residents, and the strategy agreed in Neighbourhood Plan.

Neighbourhood Plan

Endorsed in a referendum by Wing voters in 2015, the Neighbourhood Plan stands beside the AVDC strategic plan. It allows the Parish to say where future housing will be located and what it looks like, and to work with developers about the extras they can provide.

Bylaws

These are local laws governing how we use our open spaces. Currently under review by central Government, we will publish them on the website once approved.

Speedwatch

Wing Speedwatch Group is open to members of the public who wish to be involved. We share two Moveable Vehicle Activated Signs (MVAS) with Wingrave and Mentmore. These display the speed limit and the message ‘Slow Down’ when vehicles exceed the limit, and log the number of vehicles passing and their speed. We also have access to a Sentinel video speed camera, which is shared between 12 parishes. It needs a team of people to supervise as it stands on a tripod and cannot be left unattended.

Wing & Burcott in Bloom

All gardens are automatically entered in two categories – Best Front Garden and Best Hanging Baskets –with certificates and gardening vouchers for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Judged one evening in late-June, early July.
