Parish Meeting

Local Politics and Crime Prevention

Local Politics

The Parish Meeting is the lowest level of local government, but is perhaps the most democratic form.
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 a “stranger” and does not have the right to vote.
The Agenda for the next Parish Meeting and minutes of the previous meeting can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.  Copies of older minutes can be requested using the Contact form.
Chicheley is within the Milton Keynes Unitary Authority.  It was part of Sherington Ward until the local election of 22nd May 2014 when it became part of the larger Olney Ward.  
Chicheley is represented on Milton Keynes Council by the three Councillors for Olney Ward; Keith McLean, Peter Geary and Debbie Whitworth.   The Councillors publish a monthly article in the Olney Phonebox Magazine that presents information on local issues they are addressing.
SCAN Magazine provides additional information on local issues and events in Chicheley and neighbouring villages Astwood, Sherington, Hardmead and North Crawley.
Chicheley is represented in Parliament by the MP for Milton Keynes North, Ben Everitt.

Public Rights of Way

Chicheley is blessed with a great network of public footpaths and bridleways with enough routes and adequate distance to satisfy all users.  Rights of way pass through land that is actively farmed, so for safety, and as a courtesy to other users, please stick to the routes and adhere to the regulations governing rights of way.  Please refer to:

Ordnance Survey maps show the type of right of way using the legends on the left of this article for 1:25000 and 1:50000 scale maps.  
Public rights of way should be way marked with signs, but are not always, so please check you map.   Tracks shown on fitness apps are not valid and should be checked against Ordnance Survey maps.
Horses and cycles are not permitted on footpaths, and cyclists should give way to walkers and horse riders on bridleways.  
Some paths are "permissive" meaning the land owner has granted access, but they are not public rights of way.  Such routes can be closed from time to time for farming purposes.
Some tracks are not necessarily public rights of way and unless they are should not be used.
