January 2020 Breakfast
With the Government set to cut Rate Support Grants, and MK Council’s reliance on business rates set to increase by 25%, Cllr Sam Crooks, Mayor of Milton Keynes, has called upon businesses to work collaboratively with the council - particularly as the city faces a decade of considerable growth. Speaking at the first Milton Keynes Business Leaders Partnership (MKBLP) event of 2020, Cllr Crooks highlighted how the phasing out of the Rate Support Grant will see the percentage of local business rates retained by the council increase to 75%.
December 2019 Lunch
MKBLP have kicked off the festive season in style with a Christmas lunch at Marco’s New York Italian restaurant at the Holiday Inn Milton Keynes Central. We were delighted to see so many of our members and board directors gather together and enjoy great food, wine and company! These more informal gatherings complement our programme of formal events where members hear from a range of great speakers, and it also provides us with an opportunity to catch up and create long lasting acquaintances.
