Regeneration Strategy 2030

In 2009, Milton Keynes Council launched it’s first Regeneration Strategy. With an ambitious vision to transform the life prospects of the most deprived residents, the strategy initiated a programme which focused on improving the social, physical and economic outcomes in priority neighbourhoods for the benefit of the whole of Milton Keynes.

 

Regeneration Strategy 2030

The Councils Regeneration Strategy 2030 (PDF, 11.1MB) sets out the vision for Milton Keynes, capturing the type of place Milton Keynes aspires to be for all those who live, work, learn and visit. It focuses it’s priorities on health and wellbeing, transport, skills, employment opportunities, housing and the public realm. In addition, the Council has made a commitment to be a Co-operative Council, following the values and principles of social partnership, democratic engagement, co-production, enterprise and social economy, maximising social value, community leadership innovation and learning.

The vision for RegenerationMK blends this ambition and approach with the Council’s commitment to respond to the needs we know exist for people living in places in need, framed by national policy and guidance. The RegenerationMK vision is of a Milton Keynes where:

• People are empowered to take ownership
  of their future.

• People’s surroundings make their lives better.

• Barriers are removed between people and
  jobs, and ambitions can be realised.

 

Strategic Priorities

Strategic Priority 1, People: Through community development we will work in priority neighbourhoods to build the skills, knowledge and confidence of people and community groups to enable them to take effective action and play a role in the development of their communities. We will proactively seek to raise local aspirations, build cohesion and create systems which enable residents to be active partners in the regeneration of their neighbourhoods.

 

Strategic Priority 2, Place; We will deliver transformational change across the city focusing on priority neighbourhoods8 for investment. We will support and deliver ambitious schemes of mixed tenure development, providing high quality living opportunities for existing and new residents and in doing so seek to create vibrant, welcoming and safe places to live and work. We will seek to deliver a befitting legacy for current and future communities that is desirable, affordable and sustainable, and we will remove the postcode stigma.

 

Strategic Priority 3, Prosperity: We will tackle the root causes of poverty by improving access to employment and increasing income levels. We will seek to unlock entrepreneurial talent, re-invest in the local economy, develop skills that are matched to the needs of the local labour market, and develop mechanisms that will support educational achievement and help guard against future poverty risk.
