Our parish is a unique and beautiful place. Any planning application should respond to this context. The parish has a variety of new and old buildings including many designated listed buildings within a Conservation Area and Ancient Monuments all interspersed by the creative legacy left by new town developments.
The parish clerk is notified by Milton Keynes Council of new applications in our area. OWPC reviews the full list of planning applications at its bi-monthly meetings.
Details of these applications are issued via the public meeting agenda with discussion as appropriate. As a parish Council we can respond to the consultation by either:
objecting to the application
supporting the application
passing no comment
If you have any specific concerns regarding a planning application in your area you can make representations as a member of the public direct to the relevant Planning Officer at Milton Keynes Council.
You can also contact your Old Woughton Parish councillor to discuss any specific concerns that you would like us to consider when we make our representations on the application.

St. Mary’s Church
St. Mary’s Church
The church building is predominantly 13th century (1200 AD)The south aisle and porch were added in the 14th century . The church was re-ordered in 1974, in the early days of Milton Keynes. Although this has taken away some of the furniture usually associated with a Parish Church, it does give the visitor the experience of a church that has been successfully adapted to suit the needs of the modern congregation and the community it serves. The 15th century Tower, rises to a height of 60 feet above the ground. Six bells are housed in the chamber, the oldest two dated 1653.
The church forms part of the Woughton Ecumenical Parish, which includes the Church of England, Methodist, United Reformed and Baptist denominations. St. Mary’s Church serves the communities of Woughton on the Green, Woughton Park, Peartree Bridge, Eaglestone. and Passmore. The Minister is the Rev. Paul Norris.
