New Hindu temple planned in Milton Keynes

Plans for a new Hindu temple and community hall in Milton Keynes have been lodged with the council.

A London company called SHITAL, from Wembley, has applied to build an 894-sq-m two floor building on Milton Keynes Community Foundation land to the east of St Agnes Way, in Tattenhoe.

It would be for the Shirdi Saibaba sect which teaches love and unity, and be open from 8am to 8.30pm every day of the year.

Planning documents lodged with Milton Keynes Council show it would be constructed from recycled steel shipping containers, and painted with marine paint.

SHITAL has already carried out one door to door meet and greet and two indoor public consultation exercises for the plan, which would be near to Tattenhoe Sports Pavilion.

Parking, or the lack of it, has appeared as an issue. One local resident wrote: “Great addition to the community. Looking forward to activities to enhance the area. Will be good to have an occupied building which will add to security in the area. Extra parking will be great. Parking is an issue, not enough.”

SHITAL responded, saying there is overspill parking on the residential streets by parents picking and dropping their children at the nearby Giles Brook Primary School. Meetings have been held with Tattenhoe Pavilion, and Giles Brook Primary School. SHITAL, in its online documents, says: “SHITAL has offered the use of the allocated car parking spaces to parents doing the school run as well as to Tattenhoe Pavilion as an overspill car park on event days.

“The offer of the use of the additional spaces will be distributed to parents by Giles Brook School and event day attendees by Tattenhoe Pavilion.”
