MK Futures 2050

Our programme to manage the ambitious long-term future for Milton Keynes

The MK Futures 2050 Commission was set up in September 2015 as a way of thinking about the future of the city, helping to create a long-term vision for the way MK should grow and prosper over the coming decades.  The Commission published their report in July 2016.  You can read more about the MK Futures 2050 Commission and their report “Making a Great City Greater” at

Since 2016, the MK Futures team have prepared and adopted a Strategy for 2050.  The Strategy sets the way forward for the next era of making our great city greater.  It is a strategy for everyone living in Milton Keynes today, especially the children and young people who will be our future citizens, as well as those who will choose to move here to be part of a globally leading green city.

You can read the final Strategy for 2050 at or by downloading it here (PDF, 12.8MB).

The MK Futures 2050 programme will now be moving to focus on delivery of our long-term growth programme, as well as continuing to support our Renaissance:CMK and MK:U projects.
