What is the MK Futures Connectors Group?

Community Action: MK is supporting a project which is all about connecting ‘ordinary’ residents with the Six Big Projects that are going to shape Milton Keynes as we plan for the year 2050. 

The MK Futures Connectors Group is a two year stakeholder engagement programme to underpin the MK Futures 2050 work. The connectors group will engage local community groups, representing a diverse range of people, to ensure as wide a participation in the programme as possible.

*NEW* Update on the MK Futures Community Connectors group

 culture

We want to make sure that involvement as a Connector can be really effective and that Connectors can have a real influence on the future of the city.  We are therefore proposing to focus the role of the Connectors on the work being done to prepare the Strategy for 2050.  The Strategy for 2050 is a new long term plan for the future of the city, that will look at how and where the city will grow over the coming decades, what sort of place it should be, how we will travel around the city, and how communities can be more sustainable, healthy, accessible and inclusive.

Over the next year, MKC and partners will be developing the Strategy for 2050 and we want you to help us on that journey.  We want to talk to you about some of the key challenges facing the future of the city from your and your communities’ perspective and how the Strategy might be able to address some of those, plus how we can harness the opportunities of growth for all residents across the whole city.

We are working now on the plan for how we will work with you as part of this journey and will be in touch soon with more details. We hope that you will continue to be part of the Connectors group; your involvement will help to shape the future of Milton Keynes.
