A VILLAGE school may have won a top environmental prize - but it has had to apply for permission to show it off.

Cheddington Combined School, in the village High Street, has submitted a bid to Aylesbury Vale District Council to put up its Green Flag Award.

If given the go-ahead, the flag - awarded after the school impressed eco inspectors - will be six metres tall.

The planning application was put in to the council earlier this month.
