Community Building Plans Approved

The Town Council’s plans to construct a new community pavilion and events space in Campbell Park were approved at a meeting of Milton Keynes Council’s Planning Committee on Thursday 6 July.

The proposed development, being jointly advanced by CMK Town Council and The Parks Trust, will also feature a café and public toilets for users of the park. With planning application granted, work will now progress on tweaks to the design and drawing up contracts to make the building a reality.

One local resident fed back to the planning application by saying, “I think the proposed design of the cafe/community centre/offices is exceptional and will fit perfectly into the landscape… It is to be hoped that this iconic new building will at last make our wonderful park less of a hidden secret.”

The Town Council would like to thank all the local residents who took part in both public consultation events for the project, as well as those who wrote in to comment on the planning application.
