Futures Group

Stony Stratford High Street

You may remember taking part in a survey as part of a Town Healthcheck for Stony Stratford in 2004. The aim of the Healthcheck was to look at the issues facing the town at that time, and in the future, especially with the ongoing expansion of Milton Keynes. The results of the survey were used to create a ‘Vision’ of how our community would like to see Stony Stratford, Fullers Slade and Galley Hill develop over the next 20 years.

The Stony Stratford Futures Group (SSFG) was formed in 2005 to produce an Action Plan to take the town into the 21st Century. The SSFG has its own constitution and is made up of representatives from the Town Council, Stony Stratford Business Association, various community groups in the parish, Milton Keynes Council and a number of local residents including those with links to Wolverton Archaeological Society, Stony in Bloom, and Milton Keynes Museum. 


The SSFG is continually looking for active participation from the local community to be involved with this process and to help obtain other sources of external funding.

Members of Stony Stratford Futures Group are:-

Chairman Ross Ellens

Lesley Arkin
Stony Stratford Business Association (SSBA)

SSFG Meeting Minutes

The group meet a least once a month and produce minutes of the meetings. Printed copies of the all the meeting minutes are stored on file in the Stony Stratford library.
