The Parish Council serves the areas of Atterbury, Brooklands, Broughton, Middleton, Milton Keynes Village and Oakgrove. There are currently twelve parish councillors for two wards within the parish.
The Parish Council is funded by an annual precept, which is paid through Council Tax. Funds are used to maintain our assets, to pay the clerk and warden and for the support and development of the environment, community projects and services. These assets include the sports pitches and pavilion in Middleton, the village green, the paddock in Milton Keynes Village, litter and dog waste bins and four allotment sites.
In addition the Parish Council represents parishioners on matters both parochial and city wide, e.g. planning issues, new policies proposed by Milton Keynes Council and we have representatives on bodies such as the Parishes Forum and the Eastern Expansion Area Stakeholder Group.
We feel it is important to make parishioners aware of our role and we hope the website will help to disseminate information. We also post notices on the notice boards strategically placed throughout the parish. So keep a look out if you want to know what is current.
The public are welcome at all parish council meetings, which are held at 7.15pm in the Milton Keynes Village Hall or the Broughton Pavilion. Do come along and hear first hand about the variety of work we do.
