Milton Keynes Council’s Progressive Alliance has revealed their proposals for a fair and prosperous economic recovery from the pandemic in their new Council Plan.
The ambitious plan has 5 areas of priority, including delivering a COVID-19 economic recovery plan that supports businesses, high streets and residents, to ensure a fair, prosperous and green recovery.
The plan covers everything from investing over £3m to support Milton Keynes businesses, to working with Centre:MK to protect and renew the city centre, to delivering improvements to CMK market. A programme of improvements and investment will be brought forward to help the city’s high streets, local centres and independent retailers.
Councillor Robin Bradburn, Liberal Democrat Progressive Alliance Cabinet Member for Economy, Recovery and Renewal, said: “As we look to the recovery of our city, it is important that we always aim to be fair and green, and to deliver a recovery that is truly prosperous. Businesses, high streets, residents who are unemployed and those looking to reskill all need support, and this Plan provides that.”
Councillor Rob Middleton, Labour Progressive Alliance Cabinet Member for Resources, said: “MK’s businesses and residents have had such a hard time because of the pandemic and lockdowns. We have listened to these concerns and are committed to making sure our recovery is successful.”
