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 10am – 3 pm (except Wednesdays, when we are closed). We will be looking at opening on one evening a week and at the weekends as restrictions ease further.

More details on our ‘Contact Us’ page.

YOU CAN ACCESS OFFICERS, DOG BAGS, INFORMATION, ETC. VIA THE COMMUNITY FRIDGE, WHICH IS OPEN TUES AND THURS BETWEEN 10AM – 2PM

Annual Governance Statement and Reporting

Following the Extraordinary Full Council Meeting that took place on 22nd June, we have now published our ‘Notification of Public Rights’ (you can find that HERE) alongside the budget and the Annual Return that will follow.
Any queries, please do let us know.


 Annual Service Plan

Each year, we create a plan that determines the activities and actions that we aim to achieve. The plan runs from April to March (the financial year for us) and includes a whole range of things that help the council do what we are set up to do – help local people make Woughton great. The plan for the coming year was agreed and ratified at Full Council in January and covers the period from April 2021 – March 2022

You can find the plan at https://www.woughtoncommunitycouncil.gov.uk/services/the-annual-service-plan/ 


Settled Status Support

Following discussions at our Full Council meeting in December, it was suggested that to support all our residents, we enable people who are EU nationals to apply for ‘Settled Status’, to enable them to continue to be part of out community post June 2021.
 
The government link is https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families for information and advice around this.
 
If you feel you would benefit from some support with this, please contact us and we can see how we can help.

Coronavirus

For information about Covid-19 (known as coronavirus) and the steps that Woughton Community Council are taking, click HERE

With the move to fewer restrictions in place, we have reopened all our buildings, but are asking people to remain vigilant and maintain the safe behaviours that have become so common place – masks whilst in busy, confined spaces, hand sanitiser use, etc..

We will be working to get back to some sort of normal over the coming weeks and will keep you updated on anything essential. Please stay safe, look after yourselves and enjoy the summer.

Annual Returns

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
