MK New Town Heritage Register

MK New Town Heritage Register

Milton Keynes is the last, largest and most ambitious of all the new towns in England. The combination of its scale, distinctive grid layout and architectural and landscape driven design, will never be seen in this country again.

National Heritage Register

Its unique character contributes to its local, national and international significance, with many assets having been awarded grade II listing by the Government and its advisors, Historic England, including:

  • The Shopping Building
  • Central Library
  • Former bus station (Elder Gate)
  • Houses at Cofferidge Close, Silver Street Stony Stratford, Octo
  • Octo (CMK)
  • 2MS Series No.1 sculpture (Bletchley).

MK New Town Heritage Register

The MK New Town Heritage Register aims to identify all assets that contribute to the distinctive identity of Milton Keynes, with or without grade II listing. We hope bringing these assets together will:

- properly inform planning decisions that may affect them

- positively promote town heritage, and the investment and growth of other cultural projects

- allow residents and workers in MK to celebrate and enjoy those assets

Nominations to the Register – 2018

Nominations to the Register took place between January and March 2018 and are now undergoing a technical sift.

A selected panel of experts and local stakeholders will make recommendations to Milton Keynes Council for final approval.
