CAR PARK NOTICE // This is a polite notice to all park users.

Due to changes in MK City Council Transport policy, from 2 January 2024 we are expecting a significant increase in the number of vehicles using our car park; particularly at busy times.

In the interests of safety, we will be closing the side access road and also the area immediately in front of our fire assembly point to all parking.

At busy times we will operate a system for drop off and pick up which may involve asking vehicles to queue.

We ask for your patience with these measures which are for everyone’s safety.

We sincerely hope that this will be a short term temporary measure while we work with MK City Council to find a more sustainable solution.

Thank you for your continued support of the charity.
