We circulate this Newsletter to update all on the regeneration debate and to seek to update our records.
FIXING THE LINKS.
Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Council continue to seek to influence decisions taken that may better improve the links to the town centre from the railway station.
The works to the east west railway line will place Bletchley Station at the intersection of this new route and the west coast main line. The Oxford to Bedford section of the new route is scheduled to become operational in 2019.
It is thought that Bletchley Station is in poor condition and gives a negative impression on arrival. Exiting the station the routes to the town centre are not clear and include obstacles for some users. Proposals are being debated and an indicative time line that sees works commence in Autumn 2016 is in place.
At the time of writing proposals, both large and small are being debated, from improved signs and footpath works through to large projects to change the roadways and roundabout. This is at a key stage in decision making and it is recommended that interested parties attend the Town Council regeneration meetings to be updated.

Ideas presented by the Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Business Association
Fenny Stratford is a neighbourhood overlooked and left behind. In part the design of Milton Keynes has contributed to the success of many areas but also to the failure of some of the original neighbourhoods and the increased isolation of disadvantaged residential areas. This is likely to be a contributing factor towards the polarisation of socially advantaged and socially disadvantaged neighbourhoods.
