The building’s distinctive appearance will be retained and refreshed, and the landmark black horse statue will remain.

Plans to rebuild Lloyds Court into a new retail destination were approved at a meeting of Milton Keynes Council’s planning committee last night. The building, which dates from 1976, will retain its current appearance in view of its status as the first building to be completed in CMK. The interior, however, will change completely, with five new large retail spaces and a number of smaller units being created, designed to support a mix of larger shops and smaller businesses.

The plans also involve filling in the current service entrances on the Secklow Gate side of the building, creating one continuous pedestrian route along this side, where the new larger shop units will have their entrances. A new service area will be created on North Row, having  been relocated there after concerns from local residents saw the original plans for a service access on North Tenth Street changed.
