Mark pushes for regeneration funding for Wolverton

Two of the city's High Streets could soon get a Mary Portas-style makeover, thanks to £10,000 government funding.

Bletchley and Wolverton were unsuccessful in their previous application for one of the twelve places up for grabs when the Portas Pilot was announced a few months ago.

However, this could change soon as MPs Iain Stewart and Mark Lancaster have given their backing by signing the individual bids submitted last week by both towns.

Milton Keynes North MP Mark Lancaster said: "I have supported the bid for Wolverton to receive funding for a number of years and whilst £10,000 isn't much, I am sure that Marie Osborne and her fellow team members will ensure that every penny is spent in the best possible way. This would be really exciting for Wolverton and I have my fingers firmly crossed that they get the funding."

Iain Stewart, his Milton Keynes South counterpart added: "I am particularly pleased to sign this bid and hope that Bletchley is successful this time round."

"Lisa Courtney, her staff at the Town Council and residents have all worked so hard to change the face of Bletchley High Street with the Love Bletchley Day campaign."

"Winning this bid would be a fitting award for all the hardwork everyone has put in," he added.
