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.
Each year, Woughton Community Council sets a budget for the coming year. This includes ALL spending and income for the year and shows exactly how we are spending our income.
Every house in the parish will receive details of the proposed budget and the option of making comments about this. We also have an ‘online’ option for feedback which can be found by clicking HERE
(if this link doesn’t work, you can copy and paste https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/JW73TR8 into your browser).
It is proposed that we increase our (small) part of the council tax precept by 6.25% (equivalent to around 16 pence per week for most households in the parish). This will ensure that we can maintain and improve our services, with a special focus on improving the estates and the environment and landscaping.
Your feedback is really important – the survey is only five questions and should take no more than a couple of minutes, at most. All responses will be confidential.
The budget will be formally agreed at Full Council on January 14th (meeting held at our offices from 6pm) and we have two ‘drop in’ consultation events in December:
Wednesday 19th December at 3pm
Thursday 20th December at 7pm.
Both these events will be held at the Council Hub, Local Centre, Garraways, Coffee Hall, MK6 5EG.
You can also send feedback via email – firstname.lastname@example.org or by returning the form attached to your letter by 4th January 2019.
We would like to make you aware that Woughton Community Council is reviewing their current contractor list and is eager to employ people from within the area wherever possible.
We are currently looking for applications from local companies / individuals to provide a range of services including; electricians, plumbers, gas suppliers, carpenters / fitters, general handy-persons and similar.
Applicants need to be insured and registered with the relevant professional bodies (where applicable, e.g. Gas Safe registered) and provide suitable references.
Woughton Community Council manages six +venues and is in the process of a significant improvement programme.
We are looking for professionals to provide both ‘one off’ jobs, but also to build a list of ‘approved’ contractors for ongoing work.
If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please contact us at email@example.com
Have a nice day and enjoy the rest of the week.
