Important -New Community Transport Hub

Thank you to everyone who has responded so far to the “New Community Transport Hub” link below. 

Putteham Parish Council have made an application for funding to transform the area by the skate park into a safe, cleaner and more appealing parking space in order to help alleviate the traffic situation in the village particularly during school drop off and pick up times. 

It will  have electric charge points and bike racks and will be built in as ecofriendly a way as possibe. It will enable more people to access all the recreational facilities offered at the recreation ground and,in particular, will benefit those who find it more difficult to access the area on foot. 

In order to be successful in the funding application, the PPC need to demonstrate that this project, which many parishioners requested via the Neighbouhood Plan, has the support of the local community. Traffic and parking in the village was shown in the Neighbourhood Plan survey to be the biggest annoyance in the community as a whole and this project should really help alleviate the problems.

Please help by following the link below and show your support. The more support, the more likely it is that the funding will be granted.

Puttenham Common Habitat Restoration Update

Following on from the many presenations given to the public by Hampton Estate regarding their 100 year plan for Puttenham Common their website is now up and running. If you wish to access the information please follow the link below or go to our useful links tab and click on Sustainability.


With many householders extending and renovating their properties, can you please ask all your builders and delivery drivers to park appropriately and respectfully for other householders without affecting the flow of traffic, blocking driveways or parking dangerously in the village, particularly in The Street which is very narrow. We would also ask that any noisy building works finish at 1 pm on a Saturday and remind people that it is prohibited to have noisy work on Sundays and bank holidays, as per current legislation. 

21st July 

The Parish Council are holding a presentation evening on Wednesday 21st June at 7:30pm in The Marwick Hall, where Hampon Estate will be presenting “The Next 100 Year Plan for Puttenham Common”. 

This meeting is an opportunity to hear the plans and  give your views.


Local Celebrity – Dave Williams

Puttenham Hop Fields

Hampton Estates are applying digestate in the new hop gardens to the hop plants for nutritional purposes.

In the past we have used synthetic fertilizer for this particular application, but are trying a liquid fertilizer instead. It’s completely inert with a make up of maize and grass waste and is the bi product of electricity production through an anaerobic digester system.

It accords with our aim to have less dependency on industrial man made products and is a natural solution.



An uncontested election was held on Thursday May 2023 and the following were duly elected.
