Browns Wood Sports Ground

Planning permission was granted, subject to conditions. Plans have been re-submitted and we are now awaiting MKC approval, hopefully by the 24th of September.

When we have received this approval we can begin construction work on the Pump Track, Play Area and the Outdoor Gym.

The blue shelter will be removed during this stage and we hope that these features will be completed by the end of this year.

We are provisionally looking to "break ground" for the actual Pavilion in March 2019???


At its meeting held on Tuesday 2 May 2018, the Council agreed that, in view of borrowing approval having been given by DCLG, then subject to all the conditions being met in respect of the planning application, Walton Community Council would build a pavilion at Browns Wood Sports Ground that would be funded by the drawing down of a Public Works Loan Board annuity loan of £1.492m, over a term of 50 years.  


Decisions made by Walton Community Council Full Council about matters relating to Browns Wood Sports Ground Pavilion Build.


A resident consultation about funding for the Browns Wood Community Pavilion was carried out between 29th January and 16th February 2018.
A letter was delivered to all the houses in the parish and was also published on the Council website and on social media.
From a total of 9102 registered voters in the parish there were 71 responses to the consultation received. (0.78%). Of these responses 38 were against the funding proposals (0.42% of electorate, 53.5% of responses), 26 in favour (0.29% of electorate, 36.6% of responses) and 6 did not state a position but wanted further information (0.07% of electorate, 8.45% of responses). 1 response was in favour of the project in principle but wanted further information regarding the loan.
From the 71 responses received, a total of 44 distinct questions were generated. Responses to these questions can be found in the Consultation Response Document. The document references 2 other documents that are also linked to here, the Consultation Statement and the Evidence of Need.

Browns Wood Sports Ground development plans

Following the feedback from residents at the drop in events in March 2017 and the Summer MK50 event in August 2017 we have continued to work with our Architects to develop the proposals for the community pavilion and the outdoor leisure offer.

The latest plans will be available to see at one of our drop in events where you can discuss them with staff and councillors.

Room 4, MK Snap building,  Bourton Low, Walnut Tree.

Wednesday 22nd November 2017 - 6:30 - 8:30pm

Saturday 25th November 2017 - 10am - 12noon.

We would love to see you there.



Now that WCC have taken over the management of the sports ground, we are progressing plans for improvements to maximise the potential and provide additional facilities for the whole community. You may have seen the recent improvements and extension to the boundary footpath, with more recently the replacement of the benches and addition of a new one, including the facility of wheelchair access.

The pictures below show some early concept plans of the types of facilities we are considering, all of which have been proposed as a result of community feedback over the last 2-3 years.

Concept Plans

It is important to stress, these are just concept layout drawings to show how the various elements might fit alongside the existing football pitches. No decisions have been taken as yet and we are now inviting residents to find out more and offer their thoughts and ideas before more detailed plans are drawn up.

Or why not come along to one of our drop-in events at MK Snap where you can view the ideas, meet with staff and councillors to give your feedback.
