Welcome

To Woughton Community Council

Woughton Community Council is the council closest to the residents in the parish of Woughton. The Community Council is here to support residents by representing their views on issues affecting them. We provide environmental and community facilities. On our website you will find information about Woughton Community Council’s services, as well as news about upcoming events and projects.

You can also get information at our office, based in the Local Centre on Coffee Hall. We are open each weekday between 9am – 5 pm (except Friday, when we close at 4pm). More details on our ‘Contact Us’ page.

BUDGET CONSULTATION 2020/21

It is that time of the year where we are planning budgets for next year and we would love to hear your views. At Full Council on Monday 11th November, a recommendation was made that we increase our small part of the council tax precept by 10% (just over £1 a month for most in the parish). Is this too much? Too little? About right?

Have your say by completing the survey by clicking HERE

or visiting the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/FW8X7LL

The survey is open until 6th January and there will be consultation events where you can come and discuss with us on 18th December and 7th January

Council of the Year Winner

Woughton Community Council was awarded the ‘Council of the Year’ award on Monday 28th October, as part of the National Association of Local Councils awards ceremony. This award, presented by the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire is given to the council that the judges and the public voted as the best and reflects the hard work of councillors, staff and residents from across the parish.

The ceremony, which took place at Stadium:MK, was part of the NALC Annual Conference, which saw representatives from local councils across the country come together for two days, with HRH Princess Anne also in attendance.

Cllr Sue Smith, Chair of Woughton Community Council said:

‘This award reflects the hard work from the council over many years. Councillors, staff, local residents and many others all help to ensure that we listen and respond to local people and being seen as the leader of all 10,000 local councils is a fantastic result.’

Alongside winning the award, Woughton also delivered a workshop titled ‘Investing in your community – how local councils are tackling austerity’. Milton Keynes is one of the few areas with parish or town councils covering the whole city and is viewed nationally as an example of how councils can work together. Accepting the award, Cllr Donna Fuller, Leader of WCC noted that the award came in the year that the city lost Cllr Kevin Wilson and dedicated the award to him, as one of the leaders in making MK a fully parished city and his dedication and influence nationally.

The judging panel felt that the range and quality of the services that Woughton provides were an example to other councils of what is possible, and the public agreed, voting Woughton as the winner ahead of Salisbury Town Council and Feock Parish Council from Cornwall.

 

 

 

 

 

To try and get YOUR views on parking and traffic across the parish, we have opened a feedback survey. We aim to use the feedback to encourage better planning, parking, enforcement and (hopefully) some new parking spaces.
