Parish assets in the Milton Keynes Community Asset Transfer Programme (CAT)
After the withdrawal of Walton Community Council's partner (Walton Community Facilities) in the joint bid for Wavendon Gate Pavilion site; Browns Wood Playing field and Britten Grove Community Centre in late December 2013, the bid process was halted by Milton Keynes Council. After careful discussion, Walton Community Council decided in its January 2014 meeting that the Council's responsibility was to the community and to ensure that the facilities (assets) remained in the public ownership and for community use. The Council therefore agreed that the course of action to take would be to bid for the assets as they were returned to the programme by Milton Keynes Council and self manage the assets.
Subsequently Browns Wood Field has been released back onto the programme and Walton Community Council have submitted a bid.
