Local Politics

The Parish Meeting is the lowest level of local government, but is perhaps the most democratic form.

Chicheley is part of Milton Keynes Unitary Authority.  

Chicheley is represented in Milton Keynes Council by the Councillor for Sherington Ward,  Keith McLean.  Chicheley became part of the larger Olney Ward from the local election of 22nd May 2014.

Chicheley is represented in Parliament by the MP for North East Milton Keynes, currently Mark Lancaster.

Chicheley Parish Meeting is usually held in the Village Hall twice per year.  The purpose of the meeting is to discuss matters of importance to Chicheley, and to report them to local and national government for attention.

The Parish Meeting is run by an elected Chair and Clerk.

Any person on the Electoral Register of the Parish is entitled to speak at a Parish Meeting.

Any member of the Electorate can ask for an item to be put on the Parish Meeting agenda.

Any matter pertinent to the parish may be discussed at a Parish Meeting.

The Press and general public have a right to attend Parish Meetings, but anyone not on the Electoral Register of the Parish is “stranger” and does not have the right to vote.
