thecentre:mk withdraw Primark plans. CMK saved from disaster!


In a stunning victory for common sense and democracy, thecentre:mk announced this morning that it was withdrawing the rest of its planning applications to demolish Secklow Gate Bridge and the market, which has been established in Market Square for over 30 years. The plans have stirred the biggest public outcry in MK’s history, with over 20,000 people signing a petition to keep the core intact in just 3 weeks.

We did it!

WE DID IT!

This is also a vote of confidence in the original vision for the new city of Milton Keynes – the most successful master-planned city in British history – which owes its success and future prosperity to the superb vision of its original founders, architects and landscape planners.

Over 20,000 signatures in just 3 weeks. Biggest public outcry in MK's history.

    Well done Xplain, Parish and Town councils and all those MK residents who fought this stupid plan and gained a stunning vistory over the short sighted developers. Perhaps it will be a temporary respite, so we must continue to lobby to retain the market adjacent the Shopping Building. They will be back!
