I am delighted after much chasing by myself MK Council has finally resurfaced the Tickford Roundabout on London Road and more of the A509 to the M1.

 

Environmental neglect

The Lib Dem Focus Team and I are being inundated with complaints by residents about potholes, poor quality of pavements, long grass, overgrown bushes blocking footpaths and covering street signs, missing directional and street signs and weeds in gutters.

This can all be summarised as environmental neglect by the Council. Residents are not happy that the place where they live is starting to look run down and neglected.

When the Lib Dems ran the Council the environment was a priority and we call on the Council to do better.

The Focus Team and I have reported all the faults reported by residents and demand that the Council takes action.

 

Fire Station Roundabout Potholes Fixed
Cllr Derek Eastman and the Focus team are pleased that most of the potholes have finally been fixed on the fire station roundabout.

At last, after much chasing by the Focus Team, MK Council has fixed the worst of the potholes around the roundabout at the junction of Wolverton Rd/High St/Marsh End Rd. A pity they didn’t repair them all when they were there.

MK Police to hold online discussion about burglary

thames valley police logo

Tomorrow (31st July) Thames Valley Police are holding an online discussion with Milton Keynes residents about burglary in their Local Policing Area (LPA).

The end of year crime figures released in April this year showed that burglary in Milton Keynes had reduced by 9 percent, and it’s one of the LPA’s key priorities to ensure that it continues to reduce this year.

However, residents of Milton Keynes still express concern about the number of burglaries in the LPA and for this reason, officers want to provide crime prevention advice and answer any questions that residents may have about their home security.

Residents of Milton Keynes can join the online discussion which will be taking place between 11.30am-12.30pm by clicking on this link:
