Breaking news – the centre:mk has announced it will withdraw plans to move the market for the time being.
However it will go ahead with the main application to demolish Secklow Gate Bridge and build an extension for Primark over the existing Market Square. This application will be heard at MK Council’s planning committee meeting on Thursday night.
The plans have hit a wall of opposition as they would literally smash up major infrastructure and a popular, established market in order to build a relatively minor new store which could easily be built on sites just yards away.
Over 20,000 people have signed a petition started by market traders to keep the market and Secklow Gate Bridge in the heart of Milton Keynes.
However it is VITAL to keep campaigning.
Please come to the public meeting on Thurs 21st Feb at MK Council offices.
Xplain supporters are gathering from about 6.15 outside main doors.
Meeting starts at 7.00 pm.
