A consultation has been launched so that residents can have their say on proposed improvements to car parking and landscaping in Wolverton town centre that are part of massive regeneration plans for the area.
The consultation outlines proposed improvements to the St George’s Way Estate, and ties in with Milton Keynes Council’s commitment to invest £36m in the regeneration of the Agora Centre.
Changes proposed involve:
- Demolishing the existing underused garages
- Providing new car parking spaces for local residents and visitors
- Improving the planting and landscape
- Introducing a new public toilet, which will be funded by MKC and managed by Wolverton and Greenleys Town Council
Councillor Rob Middleton, Labour Councillor for Wolverton Ward and Cabinet Member for Resources, said: “These are exciting plans that could breathe new life into Wolverton. The area isn’t being used as much as we would like, which means it’s looking rather tired. We want to spruce up the area by planting more trees, flowers, and creating more parking for residents and visitors.”
He continued: “This is all part of our regeneration plans for Wolverton, where the town centre will be transformed into a green, attractive space for residents and businesses. The Agora Centre will be demolished next year, and in its place will be new streets, shops, and homes. This is all incredibly exciting and I encourage people to have their say on the plans.”
