Community Governance Review
 
For the Parishes of Ravensden and Brickhill
Including the Future Arrangement for the Development Known
as Woodlands Park

On 22 February 2013 the Borough Council commenced a Community Governance Review for the two Parishes of Brickhill and Ravensden.  Details of the Terms of Reference for the review including further information about what is involved with a Community Governance Review are available here

 

Between 22 February and 21 May 2013 the Council invited submissions on the future community governance arrangements in the two parishes. 

 

Representations received in this stage of the review are available to view here.

 

Representations were also received from Ravensden Parish Council, Brickhill Parish Council and from Woodlands Park Residents Association.  Click here to view these.

 

A report was then submitted to the Borough Council's General Purposes Committee.  The following link will take you to the Report to General Purposes Committee.

 

Having considered the report above, the General Purposes Committee re-opened the Stage Two consultation of the review for a further two month period. 

 

The implication of this decision is that further time has been provided for views on options for future community governance arrangements for the two parishes.  In particular, the Council wishes to receive views from local government electors and others with an interest in the review on the appropriate arrangements in respect of the Woodlands Park development.

 

Further comments or representations on the future arrangements were welcomed and  made by 15 September 2013.  The consultation has now closed.

 

Representations received in this stage of the review are available to view here.

 

The report on the outcome of this extended period of consultation was presented to the Borough Council's General Purposes Committee on 5 November 2013.  The report is available to read here.

 

Draft recommendations are available here.

 

Stage Four of this Community Governance Review started 11 November 2013 and ended 6 January 2014.

 

Responses recieved during Stage Four are available here.

 

The final recommendations were presented to the General Purposes Committee on 21 January 2014 and approved by Full Council on 5 February 2014. The final recommendations are available here. These recommendations will be implemented on 1 April 2015.
