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 and Wednesday, when we close at 1pm for staff training). More details on our ‘Contact Us’ page.
And don’t forget the big Flash Mob Distance Dance!

Following advice from Central Government and in line with safety precautions, as from today (17th March 2020) the following actions have been taken to protect local residents and staff and help reduce the impact of the virus:
- Our buildings (Hub, No 95, all community centres) will close with immediate effect.
- All public facing services (advice, wellbeing, youth, Community Fridge, Community Café) will stop operating any public access sessions from today. Services will remain accessible via email, phone and Skype, where suitable.
- All meetings with external partners will be postponed or will take place online
Landscaping will no longer be working, except for emergencies, in line with the guidance.
This is clearly a difficult time and these decisions have not been taken lightly. We have to protect our staff, our councillors, our residents and those we come into contact with. Whilst many of us don’t fall within the ’high risk’ categories, many of us do and the need to protect everyone is paramount.

*NEW* Gazette (and previous copies!)
You can check out the Spring Edition of the Gazette, which includes information about the current Coronavirus support and plans for the coming year.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WILL BE DELIVERED TO HOMES ACROSS THE PARISH IN EARLY APRIL. WE DECIDED THAT EVERYONE NEEDED TO KNOW HOW TO ACCESS SUPPORT AT THIS DIFFICULT TIME AND HAVE WORKED WITH OUR DISTRIBUTORS TO ENSURE THIS IS DONE SAFELY – not everyone is online.
You can also still look at previous editions of ‘My Woughton Gazette’, going back to 2015 (and a few from even earlier).
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.
You can give us your views by visiting:

As part of our governance and to make sure that we are compliant with all the laws and rules around local councils, each year we provide an ‘Annual Governance and Accountability Return’ (sometimes known as an AGAR) to external auditors. Local electors have a right to see this return and, if requested, to see our accounts, etc..
You can find our annual returns for the past year HERE
