People in Milton Keynes will be asked their thoughts on redeveloping a shopping centre in the city.

Milton Keynes City Council has drawn up a draft development plan for Bletchley’s Brunel Shopping Centre and the site of a former Sainsbury’s nearby. Councillors at the September 26 meeting of its executive agreed to go ahead with a six-week consultation starting in October.

The site was acquired by the council’s property division, Milton Keynes Development Partnership (MKDP), earlier this year to form part of the Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Deal project which will lead to major improvements to those areas.

Leader of Milton Keynes City Council Cllr Pete Marland said: “This is another positive step forward as we create new and better infrastructure and facilities for Bletchley and Fenny Stratford.

“We want to take the community with us every step of the way, and I ask local people to take this opportunity to share their thoughts on the proposed brief.

“By working together, we’ll deliver real change and a brighter future for Bletchley and Fenny Stratford.”
