This committee has three key roles: it reviews every planning application, considers tree applications, and takes part in various district and regional consultations where they may impact on Princes Risborough.
The Town Council is a statutory consultee, and reviews all planning applications and advises Buckinghamshire Council should they not meet local requirements and aspirations. However, it should be noted that Buckinghamshire Council makes the final decision on all planning applications, and does not always agree with the Town Council's comments.
Events/PR Committee remit is to make the town a pleasant place to come to and to put on events for residents and visitors. All events are aimed to strengthen our community, young and old; and contribute to making Princes Risborough an especially vibrant town. Many events are run in partnership with local groups and organisations. The Committee also takes responsibility for the promotion of the town through appropriate media. the production and distribution of Crosstalk newsletter, website management, and public meetings.
