CMK Town Council has succeeded in getting MK Market officially listed as an “Asset of Community Value.” This adds a layer of protection in case a plan similar to the Primark scheme comes along again, threatening the existence of the market.

If the Borough Council ever decides to sell the land it owns in Market Square, it cannot now simply sell it to the highest bidder. It will have to give the local community six months to put together a bid to buy the land, which would give us a chance of protecting this important social hub and all the family businesses that keep it going.

The Town Council has also given a grant to support the newly formed MK branch of the National Market Traders Federation to support their first ever community Fun Day at the market.
