Brickhill Parish Council, Bedford

Woodlands Park - Transfer of Funds from Ravensden Parish Council

Woodlands Park Ward became part of the parish of Brickhill on the 1st April 2015. Part of the process involved the transfer of £20,000 from Ravensden Parish. Brickhill Parish Council has been in consultation with local residents and their representitives on how best to allocate these funds for the benefit of Woodlands Park residents.

In view of the considerable time and effort being invested in this Consultation by representatives from Woodlands Park and the Parish Council, a dedicated page and Timeline was created below to simplify matters.

The Timeline was maintained until the merger in April 2015. From that point onwards, please refer to the Parish Council Minutes which include a specific section on Woodlands Park each month. One exception is the resultant 'Consultation Report' published in July 2015 which, as the culmination of all the work, justifies inclsion here for ease of reference.
