In February 2019, Bletchley Councillor Emily Darlington highlighted the need for traffic calming measures in the Eaton Avenue, Lennox and Leon Roads in Central Bletchley. All share a common problem, namely that of speeding traffic.
On Tuesday 28th May she made a Delegated Decision to put £9,523 into traffic calming in these roads. The money comes from Milton Keynes Councils new Community Infrastructure Fund (CIF).
This will provide 50% of the funding. The Bletchley and Fenny Town Council will be asked to provide the remaining 50%.
Cllr Darlington said: “When I put forward these roads for speed traffic calming in February I did not expect to be the one making the decision 3 months later. However, I have since recently been appointed to the cabinet, so it is now within my remit to make decisions like these. I am really pleased to allocate Milton Keynes Council funding to this much needed scheme in Bletchley.”
Cllr Darlington added: “Now I will be asking the Bletchley and Fenny Town Council to match fund Milton Keynes Councils investment.”
