Plans to introduce a fast food restaurant "exclusion zone" around schools in Milton Keynes will be put to the public, after councillors agreed to push forward with the idea.
The exclusion zone would mean fast food restaurants could no longer open new premises within 400 metres of primary and secondary schools in Milton Keynes.
"We want to do all we can to encourage young people eat healthily. Research shows that where hot food takeaways are situated very close to school, young people will use them regularly. This approach, which could mean stopping new hot food takeaway premises opening very close to schools, is just one action that the Council is considering to support healthy eating locally."
Students from Cambridge University will be feeding homeless people tonight to show their support to rough sleepers in the city.Read the full story ›

The construction of a £40 million teaching and research 'STEM' building for science and engineering at the University of Bedfordshire is a step closer. Construction firm 'RG Carter' has been appointed to build the STEM centre at the Luton Campus which will be dedicated to teaching and research in the 'stem' subjects such of maths, science, engineering and technology.
“This is part of the University’s wider vision for high-level skills growth in Luton and Bedfordshire. Our new STEM building will support the ambitions of regional policymakers to enhance the skills base in Luton, extending opportunity for local residents and attracting investment to the region.”
The building will also be home to a new Science and Engineering Outreach Centre, which will promote the value of science and engineering to local schools.
RG Carter has been involved in construction projects with universities and other education providers, including Norwich University College of Arts, Cambridge University, The University of East Anglia and Anglia Ruskin University.
The STEM building is due for completion in 2018.
