What you had to say on Station Square

We are publishing the findings of our wide-ranging public consultation about Station Square.

This consultation work sought to discover what the people of Milton Keynes thought about the open space outside MK: Central station and how it could be developed to meet the city’s changing future needs. It started in the summer of 2018 when we asked you to have your say on Station Square and continued throughout 2019, with interested parties such as community groups, businesses and councillors taking part in workshops.

We put ideas for the future of Station Square on display last July in Middleton Hall and the station.  We received more than 2,700 comments from the exhibition and online survey.

Arup, our consultants, have utilised the comments we received to produce a detailed report.

If you are interested in reading the Station Square & Environs Redevelopment Consultation Feedback Report, you can find it here.

In response to the feedback we are now looking at introducing initiatives to make the square a more welcoming and interesting place. The first being explored is the introduction of temporary ‘pop-up’ spaces this summer.

As these ‘meanwhile’ uses of Station Square are being explored and put in place, the consultation report will help shape the future of Station Square into an exceptional gateway to Milton Keynes.
