On 8th November, Love Wolverton submitted a planning application for the demolition of the Agora Centre to Milton Keynes Council. This follows wide-ranging consultation with key stakeholders and the local community of Wolverton that showed strong support for early demolition of the building, which is the first step towards the redevelopment of the whole site.
Should the application be approved, demolition could take place in early 2020, avoiding any disruption to the town centre during the busy Christmas trading period. We will share details of the application and how you can support it, including an application reference number, in due course.
We’re looking forward to waving goodbye to the Agora as a part of the Wolverton Lantern Festival on 23rd November, and we hope to see many of you there.
The application is now available to view on the Council’s website. If you would like to show your support for the demolition of the Agora, and the wider redevelopment of the site – we welcome your comments on the application. Comments can be submitted by following three steps:

3. Complete the form and make your comment in the ‘Your Comment’ field.
The application is due to be determined in early January 2020.
