A great place to live!
Tinkers Bridge is one of seven priority estates in Milton Keynes for regeneration. We are concerned about what this will mean, and so have been very pro-active in involvement with the authorities, other estates, and digging out information. These can be accessed on this page
This is a personal view only, limited to information available to me, and last updated on 2 June 2018.
Fullers Slade: The residents association have created a very good plan to rival the four poor plans/outlines originally put forward in November 2017 by YourMK. However, no feedback on the R.A. plan is yet available, although it was submitted on 15 Feb 2018. There is ongoing bad communication between the RA and the RSG, and recent door- door surveys have been influencing results by telling residents that all their neighbours favour demolition.
Serpentine Court or Lakes Estate: The plan here appears to be broadly accepted. There is a separation between the RSG and the RA.
New Bradville: The RA represents all of Bradville
Woughton Estates (Coffee Hall, Beanhill, Netherfield, and Tinkers Bridge): Are in a period of uncertainty, with consultation no due until 2020, and currently no input from YourMK. This can help run down these estates, making demolition more likely
TBRA does regularly attend MK council meetings which may affect regeneration, to ensure we know what is discussed at those gatherings, and to make the council aware that we are actively watching them and campaigning for Tinkers Bridge. We need more people from the estate to join in this activity
Some say that Tinkers Bridge and Netherfield were only built as temporary buildings. No documentary evidence has been seen to support such a claim - if you have any, please let firstname.lastname@example.org know.
Many tradesmen doing work on or in Tinkers Bridge houses appear to have expressed the view that the estate will be demolished. It is not clear if they have inside information, or if they are just speculating.
