Estate Renewal Forum - Lakes Estate

As part of the new approach to regeneration and estate renewal, Milton Keynes Council is launching Estate Renewal Forums (ERF)

Estate Renewal Forum (ERF)

The ERF will be made up of residents, the Residents Association, the Town Council and others like the police, local businesses and faith leaders. As a local stakeholder, you are invited to register your interest to be a member of the forum.

The ERF will decide on the priorities, from the categories below. Subgroups will then be formed to develop work plans with support from Council officers and other relevant organisations.

  • Housing
  • Communities
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Community safety
  • Better jobs and skills
