Milton Keynes celebrates its Golden Anniversary

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of Milton Keynes, considered one of the most successful new towns of the era. Planned by Llewelyn Davies Weeks, the underpinning vision was to create a green city which could grow and flourish whilst acknowledging that circumstances and forces would change and shape the development in unpredictable ways.

“In planning of this sort it’s futile to make guesses. You have to design a city with as much freedom and looseness of texture as possible. Don’t tie people up in knots.” Richard Llewelyn-Davies
