As the application was made to Milton Keynes Council.

An application has been made to Milton Keynes Council to convert the former B&M site in Bletchley into a car sales dealership.

The B&M store in Watling Street, Bletchley, was abandoned when it closed in 2017. The app called the site a “hotbed of anti-social vandalism”.

The application, submitted by Motorpoint Limited, will be considered by Milton Keynes Council for a decision in the coming weeks.

If accepted, the plans include a £1.5million investment in site redevelopment.

The car dealership would create 40 new jobs in Milton Keynes.

The proposed development would retain existing access to the site from Watling Street, it currently offers 39 parking spaces for customers.

Submitted alongside the proposal, the statement reads: “The site development includes a single storey retail unit on the west side of the site with vehicular access from Watling Street on the corner northwest and parking on the east side of the site.There are some mature trees on the Watling Street frontage.

“The site has been vacant since July 30, 2017 and during that time has been the target of anti-social vandalism and is now dilapidated and somewhat of an eyesore.”
