Cllrs Subhan Shafiq and Jenni Ferrans in Walton Manor – the field next to Walton Grange now scheduled for development
Early plans are being developed for high tech companies in a special science park opposite the OU, with access from the H9 Groveway.
As part of this development there may be some housing at the southern side, bordering Simpson Road and next to Walton Grange. Your local Lib Dem Focus team will keep you posted and ensure you are able to take part at the consultation stage.
The Lib Dem team has met with MK Council and asked if a play area can be built into the scheme so that children from Walton Grange and Walton Park have somewhere to play – something that is badly missing at present!
Street Signs that have received attention after Focus Team action on Walnut Tree recently
Residents are proud of our area – but it’s not helped by illegible and damaged street signs making it hard for people to find their way around! Recent action by the Focus team includes:
- Cllr Subhan Shafiq had to chase the Tory council for two months to get the sign in Hindhead Knoll repaired
- Vaness McPake has had bushes cut back so that the sign on Groundsel Close is visible again
- Cllr Jenni Ferrans has reported the damaged sign in Tatling Grove – about to fall over!
- Vanessa McPake has asked for the worn lettering to be replaced on the sign on Juniper Gardens

Many people are still finding it hard to find get jobs locally – but the Tories have made it worse by removing MK Council’s recession-buster’s web pages that helped point people to key advice!
Cllr Jenni Ferrans says “Things are actually looking up in our area – Waitrose at Oakgrove, more shops and the library at Kingston and A G Barr at Magna Park will all offer jobs – but we need to help local people get the jobs!
Where’s Vanessa? Vanessa McPake on the path between Kents Hill and Monkston
Vanessa McPake has demanded that the bushes on the main footpath between Kents Hill and Monkston be cut back.
The bushes are so overgrown pedestrians have difficulty walking along the path – we had problems finding Vanessa!
Cllrs Subhan Shafiq and Jenni Ferrans have asked for the trees near the H7 on Ladbroke Grove, smashed by vandals recently, to be removed and replacements planted – with more protection this time!
