We welcome the news that Milton Keynes – the location for our flagship Brooklands development - has been granted city status as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

This civic honour is a real boon for the former new town, with history showing that new cities can expect a boost to local communities and the opening up of new opportunities for the people who live there.

Created in 1967, Milton Keynes is a key destination for sports, entertainment and shopping, facilitated by excellent connections to both London and Birmingham. Home to more than 10,000 businesses, it is used as a model for new towns across the world and the fact it’s now a city demonstrates further how important it’s become to the regional and national economies.

It’s exciting news for our Brooklands customers too, who will be able to benefit from the best of city living while enjoying a vibrant neighbourhood that not only offers a wealth of local amenities such as schools, shops and restaurants, but plenty of attractive woodlands and green space – including six kilometres of pathways and 30,000 new trees.

The development of 1,800 contemporary mixed-tenure homes offers something for everyone’s tastes and budgets, from first-time buyers and couples to growing families.

And – with another exciting phase in the pipeline – we can’t wait to welcome even more customers to this popular and well-established community as they look to make one of the UK’s newest cities their home.
