MK Council agree in principle transfer of Agora car park

Jul 25, 2018

Milton Keynes Council agreed to transfer the Agora car park to developers TOWN last night subject to a number of stringent conditions:

  • that Town obtain planning permission for the site with a scheme which meets local planning policy, including the Wolverton Neighbourhood Plan and Agora Development Brief – this includes ensuring access to the garages at the rear of Buckingham Street, and meeting parking standards required by MK Council
  • that a working group is established to address concerns over parking provision in the Town Centre – this group will include representatives from the Town Council, Future Wolverton, local businesses, and local faith groups
  • that Town engage in a comprehensive community consultation process to devise a regeneration scheme for the Agora site which meets community aspirations and is financially viable.
