MK Council’s clean up teams have been busy refreshing parts of central Milton Keynes which normally wouldn’t be possible during busier times.
As the nation prepares to come out of lockdown, MK Council is spending £75,000 to support businesses in CMK to encourage people back to the city centre when it is safe to do so.
The clean-up includes:
Running a programme of cleaning underpasses and using material that is graffiti resistant
Focus on removal of graffiti which is all part of keeping MK cleaner and greener
Every single tree has been pruned
Removed weeds and deep cleaned the junctions across CMK
Working with the Business Improvement District to roll out an ongoing programme of repainting street furniture
Other plans for sprucing up CMK includes deep cleaning Station Square and landscape improvements
Cllr Emily Darlington, Cabinet Member for the Public Realm said: “Crews have taken advantage of quieter times in CMK to clean up and in preparation of the easing of the current lockdown.”
“We are also meeting with businesses and parishes on our historic high streets to support them to reopen and thrive while promoting residents safe return to shopping.”
“We are committed to improve the look and feel of central Milton Keynes and welcoming residents and visitors back when they are able to.”
