The BBC regional news programme Look East ran a small item about Fullers Slade regeneration on 29th January. The BBC journalist approached YourMK in advance to ask us for a statement which we provided. This statement is set out in full below. Having given them this information we were very disappointed with the way that the story was presented when it was broadcast.
Regeneration must be community led. The process of developing detailed options has started but there is a long way to go. One co-design workshop has already taken place and more are planned.
In recognising the importance of working with the community, YourMK recently proposed a revised timeline in the process on Fullers Slade to ensure we get this right. This pauses the residents’ ballot to enable increased engagement and was approved by the Council’s Cabinet recently.
We have been in contact with Barrie but are yet to receive his proposal. We will of course fully consider this when it is received, and respond accordingly. All proposals will be externally appraised and validated.
We have encouraged all residents to fully engage with us in whichever way they can to help develop the blueprint for Fullers Slade’s future.
