Milton Keynes beats housebuilding targets for 4th yearStuart | YLF
Milton Keynes has beat its housebuilding targets set by central government for the fourth year running. Nearly 8,000 new homes have been built in the city over the past four years, with 2,000 new homes in the last year alone. Almost 500 of these homes are affordable.
This means Milton Keynes is comfortably beating the government goal of 1,767 homes, building 113% of its target.
In its draft Council Plan for 2022-2026, Milton Keynes Council sets out its ambitions for continued well planned growth for the city and for increasing the supply of genuinely affordable housing. The plan will be received by Council on 15 June.
Leader of MK Council, Cllr Pete Marland visited the Wavendon Chase development where Bellway is currently building 168 new homes. The development will include new schools, shops, a health centre and public open space, and is expected to be completed later this year.
