It is now home to over 250,000 people and boasts impressive industry, transport links and infrastructure.


Milton Keynes sits on the M1 motorway junction 14, making it an ideal base for companies wishing to distribute their goods or services across England. The M25 motorway is only 24 miles away and provides access to London via the A41 dual carriageway and the M40. Milton Keynes Central railway station is on the West Coast Main Line, offering direct services to London in under half an hour.


Milton Keynes has excellent transport links, with easy access to cities like Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow as well as direct flights from nearby Luton Airport. The city is also served by a wide range of public transport options, including buses and trains, making it a great option for both commuters and businesses. On top of this, Milton Keynes benefits from over 80 miles of dedicated cycleways which are often used by commuters wishing to take advantage of its flat terrain.


Milton Keynes is home to a range of businesses, from small start-ups to large multinationals. Its economy is largely based on the services sector and includes companies such as ASOS, British Airways, DHL and John Lewis & Partners.

The city boasts diverse cultural communities with many people coming from Eastern Europe or South Asia. It is also popular amongst students who come to take advantage of its excellent universities.


Milton Keynes is an attractive option for investors due to its low unemployment rate and good transport links.

The Legal History of Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes is an English town located in the South East of England, approximately 50 miles north west of London. It was designated as a New Town in 1967 and has since grown to become a major commercial centre, with business parks and shopping centres clustered around its railway station. The development of Milton Keynes has been documented through legislation, which provides insight into the legal history of this unique town.

The Development Corporation Act 1969

The Development Corporation Act 1969 was passed to provide a framework for the development of new towns. Under this act, nine new towns were selected by the Government for development – including Milton Keynes – with each designated area having their own Development Corporation to manage their growth. The Development Corporation was made up of local representatives from the development area, as well as individuals appointed by the Government who would decide on planning and economic issues within Milton Keynes.

The Milton Keynes Borough Council Act 1974

In 1974, the Milton Keynes Borough Council Act was passed. This act provided for the establishment of a borough council in Milton Keynes – a body that would have all the powers of a district council but with additional authority over matters concerning economic development within its boundaries.

The New Towns Act 1981

The New Towns Act 1981 revoked many of the provisions of the Development Corporation Act 1969 and transferred many of its powers to the Milton Keynes Borough Council. This act allowed for the Milton Keynes Borough Council to have increased control over planning matters within the new town, as well as a greater say in economic issues.

The Local Government (Milton Keynes) Order 1984

The Local Government (Milton Keynes) Order 1984 was passed to provide further details on how local government in Milton Keynes should operate. This order provided additional flexibility for the Milton Keynes Borough Council, allowing it to take decisions on planning and economic matters that could not be taken under the New Towns Act 1981.

The Town & Country Planning (Milton Keynes) Order 1985

The Town & Country Planning (Milton Keynes) Order 1985 amended the regulations laid out in the Development Corporation Act 1969 and allowed for a greater degree of flexibility in Milton Keynes’ planning process. This order enabled the Milton Keynes Borough Council to take decisions on development proposals that would have previously been taken by the Development Corporation.

The Local Government Reorganisation (Milton Keynes) Order 1994

In 1994, the Local Government Reorganisation (Milton Keynes) Order was passed which provided for a further reorganisation of local government in Milton Keynes. This order abolished the existing borough council and established a new Milton Keynes Council, with responsibility for planning, economic development and other matters. The order also provided the Milton Keynes Council with more autonomy than its predecessor.
