Estate Renewal Forum
MK Council has agreed a new Community-led Estate Renewal and Regeneration Strategy. This is more targeted at regeneration schemes that we have yet to begin engagement on.
We will continue working with the community on our proposals in Fullers Slade and establish an Estate Renewal Forum. The forum, made up of community stakeholders, will be supported by a Community Engagement Officer and will be an important group to help local people shape future proposals.
We will be approaching organisations in the next few weeks to establish the forum, but if you have any suggestions about membership please do get in touch on the details above.
Thanking the RSG
We recently received notice from the RSG about their decision to dissolve the group. We'd like to thank them for their good work and for supporting the community through the ballot process.
This naturally leads us on to establishing the Estate Renewal Forum which we have been speaking to the community about recently. We look forward to working with the whole community to deliver on the proposals that residents voted for through the new forum.
Work is continuing on the appointment of the professional team. This team will work with both MK Council and the local community in preparing the planning application, which we intend to submit next year.
As we establish the new Estate Renewal Forum we will set up a timeline which will allow plenty of opportunities for you to engage with the architects and other members of the team. We expect to hold design workshops and surgeries in the new year where you will be able share your ideas.
Update - 2nd October 2020
I'd like to introduce myself as the interim Community Engagement Officer for Fullers Slade following Mim McConachie's departure in September, and while MKC conducts the recruitment process for the permanent position.
