Milton Keynes has a population of around 240,000 and is in the county of Buckinghamshire. It is a relatively new town, which was dreamed into existence during the 60s, one of several areas in South East England built to relieve housing congestion in London. A very well-planned town, and also one of the largestof the “British New Towns”, Milton Keynes has “stood the test of time far better than most of the new towns” according to Wikipedia thanks to advice from Californian urban theorist Melvin M. Webber who thought the concept of a town centre nucleus was outdated and that areas of the town should be arranged in a grid like fashion, and therefore easy to travel from one district to another by car. His vision proved to be very far sighted as far as resident’s needs were concerned, and the grid like layout of Milton Keynes works very well in these days of ecommerce and advanced telecommunications.
Milton Keynes boosts one of the largest covered shopping centres in the UK, with three miles of shopfronts and 230 stores.
Milton Keynes is an attractive location for commuters, but it should be noted many residents of Milton Keynes are also locally employed.
