Closed Consultations

Consultation on financing the inclusive adventure play project – Parson’s Close Recreation Ground

The Town Council has had a long term aspiration to increase the availability of accessible play equipment in the parish. This has led to the gradual installation of more accessible play equipment over time in a number of Town Council owned play areas.

As the town’s most centrally located, most popular and most visited park, it has long been the intention to develop a fully inclusive adventure play area in Parson’s Close Recreation Ground, in which children of all abilities and needs can play together – including playing at height. This aspiration forms part of the Town Council’s Five Year Plan and Objectives for 2019-2024.

Find out more about the project including Frequently Asked Questions and view the play area designs here

Thank you to all who took part in the consultation regarding the financing of the project. An update will be available shortly.

Community Engagement

In February 2020, the Town Council supported Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) host an opportunity for members of the public to give their views and opinions on the town centre. Central Bedfordshire Council recorded the information into the document here.  All information gathered then and over many months is in place to inform future work delivery.

Town Centre Benchmarking Report

In summer 2019 Central Bedfordshire Council commissioned a series of town centre surveys across towns in the Central Bedfordshire area. The purpose of the surveys was to develop a better understanding of town centres and their needs.
