Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Council consists of 21 councillors who are elected (or in some cases co-opted) to represent the local community. It is a statutory body which forms part of the first tier of local government. The town council is wholly independent of Milton Keynes City Council though we work with the city council and many other partner organisations. Our councillors are supported by a team of employees who implement the day-to-day work of the council. Like all local councils, our work falls into three main categories:
- representing the local community
- delivering services to meet local needs
- working to improve community well-being and quality of life
and is funded by a tax known as a precept which is paid by local residents and is collected as part of the council tax.
We are asking you to give us your views about the services and support we provide to residents. This feedback is really important in helping councillors to decide the town council’s priorities. There are lots of services we cannot provide such as rubbish collections, schools, social care, planning, street lighting and road maintenance because these are all MKCC services. We will help where we can, but we cannot do this work ourselves. Our existing services include management of community centres, community events and specialist markets, Christmas lights, public toilets, allotments, youth clubs, holiday play schemes, CCTV cameras to deter and detect anti-social behaviour and many others. Recent feedback encouraged the council to take on landscaping maintenance and to provide warm spaces and money saving advice surgeries during the winter.
