Demolition begins on Agora Centre site in Milton Keynes

    It is all part of the huge £32m regeneration of Wolverton town centre.

    The ‘Love Wolverton’ project is set to bring new homes, community space, independent shops, green space and jobs into Wolverton, bolstering Wolverton’s High Street and offering a sustainable way of living.

    The  £32m regeneration will see 86 new homes, with 31% being affordable housing, eight new shops for local businesses, car-free ‘little streets’ and a pocket park for residents and visitors to use.

    A sustainable mobility hub, including an electric car club and bike hire facility and an energy microgrid are also part of the plans.

    Other improvements to the Town Centre will include a new town centre car park at St George’s Way to replace the former Agora car park, alongside public realm improvements and a public toilet.

    Today, work has begun on demolishing the empty 1970's-built Agora Centre, an iconic building in the town. 

    Back in January, after over two decades of false starts, Milton Keynes Council formally completed buying the site from private sector owners, which meant they were able to kickstart the redevelopment.

    Over the next four years, developers TOWN will be transforming and regenerating this important part of Wolverton, working with a design team led by award-winning architects Mole and Mikhail Riches.
