Love Wolverton will see the demolition of the Agora and redevelopment of the site and adjacent car park with a mix of shops, apartments and houses. In doing so, it will re-establish the traditional street pattern, scale and grain of this wonderful old railway town.
Our vision is Wolverton’s vision
Our emerging plans respond to the ambition laid down the Wolverton Neighbourhood Plan adopted in 2014 to make Wolverton town centre a “vibrant, attractive and distinctive neighbourhood”, and to Milton Keynes Council’s 2013 Agora Development Brief SPD.
Radcliffe Street will be reinstated where the Agora now stands, reconnecting and reinforcing the main shopping streets and creating new and improved public realm.
As well as new small shops, over 100 very-low-carbon new homes will be provided, including family townhouses, affordable apartments and live-work units, bringing new residents to the town and customers for existing businesses.
The most important London Plane trees fringing the site will be retained, providing new landscaping and green infrastructure, and aiming to deliver a net gain in biodiversity.
We’re working with Milton Keynes Council and other partners to deliver improvements beyond the Agora site including better pedestrian and cycle connections, expanded bus interchange facilities and extra town centre car parking.
