The New City Plan


The New City Plan will take forward Milton Keynes City Council’s Strategy for 2050 which set out a bold and ambitious vision for MK over the next 28 years, including equal opportunities for all, ‘lifelong’ homes that suit people at all stages of their life, and a pioneering mass rapid transit system. 

The role of the New City Plan is to deliver on the vision set out in the Strategy for 2050 and to do so sustainably. It will also build on the award-winning previous Plan:MK from 2019 and will plan the city’s development until 2050. 

Delivering on the Strategy for 2050 is also a key part of the Council Plan to build an environment that is able to thrive, is progressive and delivers a sustainable future for new and existing residents. 

The City Council wants to work with local people, businesses and organisations on the New City Plan, which it intends to be ambitious and innovative with a focus on high-quality sustainable growth, genuinely affordable housing and new job opportunities.
