The MK Futures 2050 Commission recognised the opportunities that are created by Milton Keynes position at the hub of the corridor between Cambridge and Oxford.  The National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) also looked at this corridor, and considered how improving transport infrastructure and cross-boundary strategic planning could create benefits for the wider region. Being at the centre of this corridor, especially with improved transport links, means MK can really benefit from access to knowledge-intensive jobs, a highly-skilled workforce and a bigger market for our services.  To help achieve this, we continue to capitalise on those opportunities through work with partners, neighbouring authorities and central government.

The delivery of our Strategy for 2050 was a key part of this work.  It sets out a framework to deliver the long-term vision of the future identified in “Making a Great City Greater” that will help inform future the development of our Local Plan and other strategies and policy documents.  

We are also working with central government to consider alternative approaches for how we deliver our long-term growth programme, through the 'New Development Corporations Competition', with funding from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC).  This is in line with the principles set out in Chapter Ten of the Strategy for 2050.
