Progressive Alliance celebrates six months of putting people before politics

November 15, 2021 1:34 PM

Six months ago, Labour and Liberal Democrat councillors came together to form a majority administration on Milton Keynes Council.

In May's elections, the combined groups had the majority of the vote and together had the most seats on the council. They decided to join forces, creating the Progressive Alliance, to ensure Milton Keynes has a green, prosperous and fair recovery from the pandemic.

The Progressive Alliance has since achieved a large proportion of its 68-point Council Plan. Recent achievements include:

Councillor Pete Marland, Labour Leader of Milton Keynes Council, said:

"In May, we came together to put people before politics and ensure that residents' views were properly represented."
