Milton Keynes Council has announced more estates to receive a clean-up as part of city-wide plans proposed in next year’s budget.
Over the next year Conniburrow & Oldbrook will also receive a deep clean and action will be taken on rats in response to issues raised by Councillor for Central Milton Keynes, Pauline Wallis.
Problems on those estates are a concern due to how close they are to two primary schools, play parks and local centres with lots of litter being dropped as people pass through.
The funding will be used to remove rubbish, cut back overgrown bushes and replace planting. Steps will also be taken to reduce the vermin population.
Cllr Pauline Wallis said: “We regularly hear from local people with concerns about rubbish and rats in these estates and I’m glad MK Council is including Conniburrow & Oldbrook in its deep-clean plans.”
She continued: “As a local resident myself I’m looking forward to seeing the work go ahead and am glad to see our Council is committed to getting the basics right across the city.”
