A 4,000-home development in Milton Keynes has passed the final planning hurdle.

Milton Keynes Council’s development control committee voted to approve MK East development in November. Now, following successful discussions over the scheme’s s106 agreement, the scheme, put forward by St James, part of the Berkeley Group, can go ahead.

The scheme will include two primary schools and a secondary school, a community hub, around 400,000 sq m of employment accommodation (mostly logistics) and open space in the scheme will include a linear park along the River Ouzel. There will also be a bridge over the M1.

The project is phased over a 25-year period with infrastructure works to take place within the next few years and the first new homes starting in 2025.
