Parish Council

What does the Parish Council do?

The parish council is a democratically elected body serving the parish of Cosgrove. Its purpose is to protect and promote the interests of parishioners and to provide local services.
Minutes of Parish Council meetings can be read by selecting from the dropdown menu under Parish Council.

A copy of the next Parish Council meeting agenda will be attached below seven days before the next meeting and displayed on the bus shelter notice board at the crossroads.

A summary report of the previous month's Parish Council meeting can be read in the Old Mail magazine. 

Parish Council meetings are normally held at The Village Hall on the first Wednesday of each month and start at 7.30pm, unless prior notice is given for a change of date.

Members of the community are welcome to attend meetings and observe discussions. The meeting agenda includes a 15-minute period to allow parishioners the opportunity to raise any concerns or ask questions of the Council.
If you are a member of the community and concerned about any Parish matters, you may raise them at a Parish Council meeting, send details to the clerk or discuss with a Parish Councillor in advance of the next meeting.


The next Parish Council Meeting will be held in The Village Hall on
Wednesday 3rd July 2024 starting at 7.30pm.

Members of the public are welcome to attend. 
Anyone not able to attend, may raise their concerns or views by contacting the 
clerk before 3.00pm on the day of a meeting.
Matters for the agenda must be with the clerk 10 days prior to the next meeting.

  Annual Assembly of the Parish - Wednesday 17th May

The Parish Council were very pleased to have an estimated seventy residents and members of the community joining them at the Village Hall for the Annual Assembly of the Parish.
The assembly included presentations from:

  • David Smith, Chair of Cosgrove Parish Council, who presented the annual report and thanked all our village volunteers.
  • Jenny Evans, clerk and Responsible Finance Officer to Cosgrove Parish Council, who outlined the current financial situation of the PC.
  • Cllr Ian McCord and Ken Prichard, Ward Councillors, WNC.
  • Jude Basari, Executive Head, Cosgrove Village Primary School.
  • Cedric Brasey, Chair, Village Hall Committee.
  • Mr Terry Cavender, Executive Officer and Trustee, Buckingham Canal Society.
  • Mr Andy Bush and Mr Wayne Evans, Furtho Development Opposition Group (FDOG).

The Assembly was considered to be well received, and Jenny Evans, Parish Council Clerk, will be following up with attendees to ask for their thoughts on the Assembly and whether there's anything the community would prefer to be covered next year.

The Planning application for warehouses alongside Stratford Road and Old Cosgrove Road, titled Furtho Pit by WNC, is a major concern to all in Cosgrove, Old Stratford and surrounding towns and villages. The presentation by Andy and Wayne included the launch of FDOG's efforts to raise awareness for users of Old Stratford roundabout, with the siting of a banner that can be viewed from the roundabout.
Coverage of the groups efforts have also been included in an article by Milton Keynes Citizen which you can view by clicking here>
