Bob Reid bows out of Milton Keynes Partnership
Appointed in 2004, Reid was the driving force behind Milton Keynes’ ambitious expansion plans, which will see the new town double in size to a population of 380,000.
The Milton Keynes Partnership will be overseeing the expansion to the east and west of the town where 70,000 new homes will be built, along with the densification of the town centre.
Pauleen Lane, deputy chairman of English Partnerships, said the government’s regeneration agency was ‘indebted to Bob for holding the reins well beyond his original contract’.
Reid said of his tenure: ‘I feel the time is right for me to bow out to concentrate on my other interests at a time when, I hope, I leave Milton Keynes Partnership Committee in a healthy state and ready to face an exciting future.’
