Emily Darlington said, “I would like to thank the residents of Bletchley East for their increased support for Labour. We now need to tackle some core issues affecting the different communities of Bletchley East. We need to improve litter picking and grassed area maintenance on the Lakes, improve parking in Fenny Stratford and traffic management in Water Eaton. The trees estate needs improved open space management and we need to see all community facilities built and roads adopted on Newton Leys. ”
