King William IV – Change of Use
A Planning Application has been submitted for Change of Use from a Pub to a Private Dwelling of the King William. The relevant background is fully explained in the attached document written by the Save the King William Group (Click Here to read it). You can also view the application detail itself and register to add your comments by clicking on This Link which takes you to the relevant Wycombe Area Planning page for this application (23/07884/FUL).

The Save the King William Group has opposed the application.  If it is approved then our pub will be gone forever.  Now is the time to act and the more villagers who register objections to this application the better.  Your help to prevent this happening is requested. Please use any of the information in the above attached document in your representations to Buckinghamshire Council.
According to the Planning page, the deadline for submitting comments is Friday 2nd February, however we have been advised that representations may be accepted as late as Thursday 15th Feb.
Better to submit your comments sooner than later.

Thank you!
Save the KWIV Group

    Hi
    I am trying to find out more about my parents’ whereabouts in the Second World War. My mother was twenty when her firm was evacuated to Plomer Hill House in Downley, but she spent a lot of time in Speen. It is possible that she lived there, possibly with someone called Greta who may have been originally German. She often talked fondly about Speen and she told me that it was at Speen that my father first kissed her when the bus driver told him to hurry up and kiss her as the bus needed to depart.
    I know it’s a long shot but can anyone help me?
    Came to Speen a week ago and spoke to two women in the Village Store who were far too young to remember 1941 but were otherwise most helpful.
    Here’s hoping Linda Nissen Samuels
