Rickley Park comes to West Bletchley

West Bletchley Council recently completed the transfer of ownership of Rickley Park, from Milton Keynes Council.  This means that we will now be responsible for the maintenance and management of the park, on behalf of local residents.

The Council is in the process of completing a "best value review" of the park, in order to better understand how much the park is currently used by local residents and also what would encourage them to make greater use of the area.  This has included considerable levels of consultation and input from local residents.

West Bletchley Council is committed to ensuring that the park remains available for use by local residents and that facilities and activities within the park are developed in such a way that encourages positive use of the space.
