The Mayor for 2023-24 is Councillor Mick Legg

Mick Legg

    The Mayor of Milton Keynes is chosen each year at the Annual Council Meeting (usually in May).

    Mick Legg is a Labour Councillor representing Bletchley West Ward. He was elected in May 1996 and has been a Councillor ever since. Over the years, Mick has been a cabinet member and chaired various committees, including Planning, Environment, and Licensing / Regulatory services.

    Having grown up in Milton Keynes, Mick has witnessed the diversity and development of the city, its communities, and its landmarks, and was delighted when Milton Keynes was recently awarded City Status. Mick is a strong advocate of the can-do attitude of Milton Keynes, where dreams can become reality when local people work together for the common good.

    Mick has always been active in the local community and is a former Chair of Governors at Wellsmead First School which is now part of Barleyhurst Primary School. He is married to Mandy who will be the Mayoress and has a stepdaughter, Georgia who is currently studying for a PhD at the Open University.

    Mick loves the green open spaces of Milton Keynes and spends time exploring them with Mandy and their dog, Holly. Not only this, but Mick also enjoys the green spaces that come with being a keen amateur golfer.

    This year promises to be a busy one, with the Coronation of the King taking place days before Mick takes over as Mayor and he is looking forward to joining in the celebrations across the city. Another highlight of the year is the IF: Milton Keynes International Festival, which will take place in July, featuring some world-renowned acts .

    The theme of Mick’s Mayoral year will be health and wellbeing. The Mayor will be particularly highlighting the excellent work that the voluntary and charitable sector does, throughout these challenging times and in partnership with other agencies, to make a real difference to ordinary people’s lives.
