£20m investment in Bletchley and Fenny Stratford gets underway
Tuesday 22 June 2021
The demolition of Bletchley’s former fire station has signalled the start of works that will deliver multi-million pound improvements in Bletchley and Fenny Stratford.
Last year, MK Council secured more than £20m of Government ‘Town Deal’ funding for Bletchley and Fenny Stratford to bring major improvements to the area through several key projects.
Demolition of the former Bletchley fire station, which has been vacant since last year after its operations were moved to the new multi-purpose Blue Light Hub in Denbigh, has now been completed. It’s made way for new development and MK Council will continue working with local people and Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Council to determine what is most needed for the future of the site so proposals can be brought forward.
The Council’s development body, MKDP which owns the site will be taking the major redevelopment forward that could include new homes, shops and create jobs for local people.
Leader of MK Council, Cllr Pete Marland said: “This is the first significant Town Deal project and will pave the way much needed improvements in the area. We’ve been clear from the outset that local people will be involved in projects like these so we can continue to deliver on the things that really matter to our residents.”
