Street Resurfacing Works in Wolverton

 

Did you know that the Wolverton Public Realm Design created in 2011 protects many of the design elements within Wolverton?

Thanks to a local resident reporting this to us, we have now been in touch with Milton Keynes Council who have now halted the work that they have been undertaking across Wolverton. Works were originally scheduled to re-tarmac along Victoria Street which is part paved and part flagstone paved. The guide identifies where possible any works undertaken should look to retain or reinstate original features which strengthens Wolverton's identity.

MKC will now look at their budget to see if they are able to secure funding to reinstate the remainder of the flagstone paving along Victoria street and WGTC are currently liaising with MKC to see what budget is available to undertake reinstating the remainder of the streets in the future.

Coming soon!

Public Consultations

Consultation on the Statement of Community Involvement 

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how Milton Keynes Council will engage and consult with local communities and stakeholders on planning policy documents and planning applications within the Borough.

The requirement to prepare a SCI was introduced in the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004. The Council’s existing SCI was adopted in March 2014. Following a change to the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 in April 2018, there is now a requirement to review this document every five years, starting from its adoption.

We are therefore holding an eight-week period of public consultation to provide an opportunity for comments to be submitted on the draft SCI (2019). The consultation will commence on Monday 14 January 2019 and comments must be received no later than 5.00pm on Friday 8 March 2019.

The consultation documents and supporting documents will be available at: https://www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/planning-and-building/planning-policy/statement-of-community-involvement-sci once the consultation is open.  

SaferMK 2018 Survey 

SaferMK want to hear your opinion on crime & community safety in the area. You can share your views by completing their short survey via this link: www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/community-safety 

Survey on Coercive Control 

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) would like to hear from you.

The OPCC is launching a campaign to raise awareness of relationship abuse so that people who are experiencing it, identify with it and potentially seek help. 

Relationship abuse is not solely physical abuse but emotional and controlling abusive behaviours. It is also called coercive control.

The OPCC have developed a survey to gather experiences of relationship abuse. The data gathered from the survey will support the campaign. All responses are anonymous.

If you would like to complete the survey, you can do so at https://www.surveygizmo.eu/s3/90120270/Coercive-Control-survey.  

Informal Consultation on Proposed Waiting Restrictions (double yellow lines) in Stacey Bushes 

Please be advised that Milton Keynes Council has received a request to provide ‘no waiting at any time’ restrictions (double yellow lines) in Stacey Bushes, due to vehicles parking near to accesses to premises which are causing road safety concerns.

The Council has reviewed this request and after careful consideration has decided to propose the introduction of ‘no waiting at any time’ restrictions at the junction (as illustrated on the attached plan).

The proposed waiting restrictions will help to alleviate obstruction and enable a safer environment to be achieved throughout the above mentioned roads and encourage and facilitate safer pedestrian movements. It will also ensure free passage for refuse and emergency service vehicles.

The Council intends to carry out informal consultation with local residents on 26th February 2019 for a period of 6 weeks. A letter will be sent to affected residents within the immediate area which will outline the concerns, proposal and invite them to comment.

At the end of the consultation exercise the Council will consider all comments received and report back to you with the outcome and recommendations.
