The first hefty planning application for the government's planned expansion of Milton Keynes has won the green light.
The proposals - by local practice Whittaker Prestidge Architects - will involve the construction of a whole new village on the outskirts of the city.
It will include 455 new homes - ranging from one-bedroom starter homes to five-bedroom detached houses - and 3,000m 2
of live-work units.
The scheme will be built on a 42ha site, including the Rocia Pipe Works, which the developer, Gladedale, claims is 'Milton Keynes' last remaining brownfield site'.by Ed Dorrell
