Buckinghamshire - Milton Keynes
sometimes abbreviated MK, is a large town in Buckinghamshire, about
45 mi (72 km) north-west of London. It is the administrative centre
of the Borough of Milton Keynes. It was formally designated as a new
town on 23 January 1967, with the design brief to become a 'city' in
At designation, its 89 km2 (34 sq mi) area incorporated the existing
towns of Bletchley, Wolverton and Stony Stratford along with another
fifteen villages and farmland in between. It took its name from the
existing village of Milton Keynes, a few miles east of the planned
At the 2011 census the population of the Milton Keynes urban area,
including the adjacent Newport Pagnell, was 229,941, and that of the
wider borough, which has been a unitary authority independent of
Buckinghamshire County Council since 1997, was 248,800, (compared
with a population of around 53,000 for the same area in 1961), with
almost all the 41,000 population increase since 2001 arising in the
urban area. In the 1960s, the British government decided that a
further generation of new towns in the south-east of England was
needed to relieve housing congestion in London.
Since the 1950s, overspill housing for several London boroughs had
been constructed in Bletchley. Further studies in the 1960s
identified north Buckinghamshire as a possible site for a large new
town, a new city, encompassing the existing towns of Bletchley,
Stony Stratford andWolverton. The New Town (informally, "New City")
was to be the biggest yet, with a target population of 250,000, in a
'designated area' of 21,850 acres (34.1 sq mi; 88.4 km2). The name
"Milton Keynes" was taken from the existing village of Milton Keynes
on the site.
