What We Don't Do
There is sometimes confusion about what WGTC is responsible for and what MK City Council is responsible for. Here are the most common topics.Rubbish Collection
MK City Council is directly responsible for emptying litter bins, domestic bin collections, street cleansing, fly-tipping on public land and environmental health.Planning
MK City Council is the planning authority and decides whether to grant planning permission or not. WGTC expresses its opinion on individual planning applications. Our job is to represent the whole community in making these observations which must relate to material planning matters. WGTC is also a consultee on planning policy.
MK City Council determines licensing applications but again WGTC may comment on behalf of the community. WGTC also gets involved in the spending of financial contributions made by developers under S106 of the Town and Country Planning Act (as amended).Parking
Thames Valley Police and MK City Council both have powers to enforce parking restrictions and the police can issue penalties to motorists causing obstructions or committing other driving/parking offences. We report problems and liaise with both organisations about parking problems but we can’t take enforcement action or impose restrictions.Streetlights, Roads Pavements and Traffic
MK City Council is directly responsible for street lighting, footway and carriageway repairs, traffic calming and all issues relating to local roads which are not the responsibility of the national Highways Authority.
WGTC report problems and work with MK City Council and others on road safety issues; we regularly deploy our own Speed Indication Devices (SIDs) around the area which flash to remind speeding motorists to slow down.Parks and Play Equipment
MK City Council is responsible for the grounds and play equipment at Victoria Park, Western Road Recreation Ground and Greenleys MUGA (except for the floodlights at this MUGA).
