Milton Keynes Council hits back over CABE review

Local authority retaliates after its plans to demolish FaulknerBrowns’ Bletchley Leisure Centre are dismissed

Milton Keynes Council (MKC) claims CABE ‘refused to play ball’ over the local authority’s proposed redevelopment of FaulknerBrowns’ 1970s Bletchley Leisure Centre.
Last week, the AJ reported that CABE had published a crushing design review of a Holder Mathias plan which called for the demolition of the building.
The watchdog said it could not back the scheme and called for the FaulknerBrowns building to be saved.
MKC assistant director of leisure and culture Paul Sanders said: ‘At every RIBA design stage, from A to F, we have tried to engage CABE.
‘But it wasn’t until the very last possible moment that they decided to comment, and then they fundamentally disagreed with our scheme.’
