Milton Keynes Councillor calls for parent and children parking spaces outside Civic Offices

    The relocation of the registry office from Bletchley to the Civic Offices in Central Milton Keynes has prompted calls for wider parking spaces for parents and children.

    Conservative Councillor Alice Jenkins has asked Peter Marland, the Leader of Milton Keynes Council, to look into providing car parking spaces with adequate room to remove a car seat by the Civic Office, given that new parents will now be coming in to register their child’s birth there.

    Cllr Marland agreed at Full Council on 18th July to look into this as soon as possible.

    Speaking of the proposal, Cllr Jenkins said: "Having made regular trips to the Council with my new-born, I quickly realised that you can’t get a car seat out of a car around Civic Offices, particularly during peak times when most of the spaces are filled.”

    "With parents coming to register their child’s birth in the centre of town at Civic Offices now, it is surely common sense that this needs to be addressed.”

    She concluded: "I've asked the Council to look into the possibility of offering spaces wide enough to open car doors fully to get car seats out, close to the new registry offices entrance. It seems a no-brainer to me.”
