The CMK Alliance Business Neighbourhood Plan
The CMK Alliance Business Neighbourhood Plan 2026 (CMKAP) is a pioneering business neighbourhood plan prepared by an alliance of Central Milton Keynes Town Council and local business leaders, working in partnership with Milton Keynes Council.
The Plan celebrates CMK’s distinct design and heritage – its renowned grid of roads, wide pedestrian underpasses and porte cocheres (covered walkways), its generous and convenient car parking, its remarkable landscaping and stunning Campbell Park, all of which contribute to the commercial attractiveness and quality of life in our city centre. Just as important is the promotion of CMK’s emerging role as the centre of a prosperous and growing region, through greater and more diverse development that contributes to the economic, social and environmental well-being of Milton Keynes.
There are almost 50 hectares (120 acres) of land yet to be fully developed in CMK, where the Plan proposes to:
- Expand and diversify the retail offer of CMK;
- Build many more offices to create new jobs;
- Reserve key sites for major opportunities, such as the proposed expansion of the University;
- Complete almost 5,000 new dwellings; and
- Enrich our social, sporting and cultural life with new facilities.
At the heart of a city well placed to drive the national economic recovery, what happens in CMK is of national significance. The CMK Alliance Plan 2026 prepares CMK to fulfil its role through a balanced approach, promoting growth and development whilst retaining its competitive advantage as a distinctive place with a high quality of life.
