Newport Pagnell Library Reopening

Newport Pagnell Library will reopen on Tuesday 4 August 2020. Opening hours will be:

  • Tuesday – Friday: 10:00 – 16:00
  • Saturday: 10:00 – 12:00

They will provide a basic book lending service where customers can borrow and return books but not remain inside the building. Customers will also be able to reserve books online before they visit, to reduce the amount of time spent in the building.This is a trial to see how things go.

Footbridge at Chicheley Street

Newport Pagnell Town Council have announced that the footbridge on the public right of way to the East of Chicheley Street is due to be replaced.

Works are scheduled to begin w/c 7th September and will take up to two weeks. A closure of the route will obviously be required for this time.

The structure will be hardwood and width increased to 1.5 improving both accessibility and the aesthetics.

Statement posted by Newport Pagnell Town Council via their Facebook Page.


Newport Pagnell Allotments are currently open, if you are already a tenant please feel free to visit your plot but please observe current government guidelines regarding social distancing to help limit the spread of the virus.

Please note that the government could change its guidance at any time and it is possible that allotments could potentially be closed at a later date, so please continue to monitor The Town Council website for up to date information.

Parks and Play Areas

Please be aware that although our parks remain open the play areas in them are not and should not be used.  All our sports grounds are closed.

Should you not follow the guidance around use of parks for brief exercise periods only we will unfortunately be forced to close the parks.  Please remember that Buryfield Common can also be used for exercise and to walk dogs, but the principles in Government Guidance are that you should walk or run to your place of exercise, not drive.

Town Council Offices to close due to Covid-19

Sadly, owing to Covid-19, the Town Council has had to close its Town Centre office, but we are still very much available to the public. Our central phone line is being redirected to our receptionist’s home phone, and our email addresses are all still in use. Councillors can be reached at any time, via their contact details on our Town Council website.

Meetings and events have been suspended for the time being. If you would like to comment on any planning application in your area, please just send us an email, and we will make sure your comment is considered. We will endeavour to keep grass cut in parks, to the best of our ability during these circumstances, but it very much depends on whether our contractor can field a grass cutting team. Of course all play areas are closed for the moment.

The Town Council is involved in the volunteer response to Covid-19 and you should soon be getting a message through your door advising you of whom to contact if you need help or wish to volunteer. Our thanks to the great team at Newport Pagnell Chit Chat on Facebook, for co-ordinating the volunteers for this response and doing all the work.
