5-7 Church Street Refurbishment Project To Go Ahead

Stony Stratford Town Council agreed unanimously at a special meeting held on Tuesday 14th June to fund work to transform the Council owned building 5-7 Church Street, Stony Stratford which currently houses the Council offices and the branch library provided by Milton Keynes Council.

The works will include: removal of the central staircase to create two larger spaces on the ground and first floors plus improved sound-proofing, a new staircase to the side with glass block partitions creating a lighter building, a full building rewire with new lighting and heating, roof insulation and general decoration.  

‘This is a fantastic collaboration between the Town Council and Milton Keynes Council (Principal Authority) and we thank them for their assistance with the tendering process and funding’  - Lynne Compton, Town Clerk.

The contractors appointed for the work were subject to a significant tendering process to ensure that the work is of the highest quality and provided value for money for the public. An improved children’s library will be an important part of the final outcome, supporting the learning of all young people within the parish.
