Milton Keynes City Council to launch consultation on improvements for Bletchley and Fenny high streets

    Milton Keynes City Council will begin an eight-week consultation this month, seeking the views of residents and businesses on proposed enhancements to Bletchley and Fenny Stratford’s public realm.

    The Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Deal seeks to make best use of the area’s current and future growth prospects. The funding for the project comes from the £22.7 million grant awarded in 2020, to deliver several projects which capitalise on the opportunities presented by the development of the East-West rail link, which connects to the Bletchley railway station.

    The consultation on public realm improvements in Bletchley and Fenny Stratford will set out a strategy for proposed enhancements to Queensway and Saxon Street in Bletchley, and Aylesbury Street in Fenny Stratford.

    The consultation is planned to run for eight-weeks, from July 27 until September 22, to raise awareness of the town Deal programme and look for local views from residents and businesses on the public realm schemes planned for the town, which includes:

    • Wider structural change to the layout and movement patterns within the town centre, to improve the connection between Queensway and the train station, making the town centre more accessible by train and for those visiting Bletchley Park.
    • Improvements to parking on Bletchley’s High Streets
    • Transport Hub improvements, including Bletchley’s Bus Station

    During the consultation period, a range of materials will be published via social media, mailouts, electronic information boards, online and at events.

    Cllr Lauren Townsend, Cabinet member for Resources and Customer Experience said, “We are passionate about working with the people, and local businesses, of Bletchley and Fenny Stratford to deliver the Town Deal projects and create a thriving, affordable and attractive place for people to live and work.”

    The Cllr continued, “The structural changes to the town’s high streets will help generate positive tourism and long-term investment into the heart of Bletchley and fenny Stratford. This is another positive step towards in our community-led regeneration of the historic town centre. We are delivering change that people want to see.”
