The key to Bletchley’s future is attracting new businesses, according to two of the Conservative council candidates for the new Bletchley Park Ward.
Alex Walker and Hiten Ganatra visited Specsavers on Queensway, Bletchley, to discuss concerns for business owners with local MP, Iain Stewart.
They met with owner, Bhavesh Kotecha spoke about issues including the old Co-op building, the lack of variety and the amount of empty units.
Mr Ganatra, who runs his own property business, said: “It was great to meet with Bhavesh. It is so important to get the views and concerns of local business owners.
“It was a very productive meeting and there are some issues that the other candidates and I are going to go away and look at very closely.”
Alex Walker, the other candidate for Bletchley Park added: “We are very keen to work closely with business owners on Queensway and across Bletchley. Attracting new and a variety of businesses is key for the future.
“We have a lot of ideas that we are going to look at introducing now and when we are in the council.”
Iain Stewart MP, noted, “I think the East-West rail project that will see Bletchley linked up with Aylesbury, Oxford and beyond will present the town with a fantastic opportunity.
“I am in close contact with Network Rail; making sure Bletchley will get the best deal from the new rail line.”
