A £45 million mix use regeneration of Bletchley town centre has been approved by Milton Keynes Council. The scheme, which is being promoted by Investec, will provide a new residential quarter with a new nine storey landmark building at its heart. It will deliver:
- 184 new homes (high quality town houses and apartments)
- Affordable Housing
- A new commercial/retail space
- A new community space for local people
- s106 contribution to contribute to social infrastructure delivery/ provision
- An extension of the cycling Redway (‘Fixing the Link’)
The proposal has been prepared following extensive consultation with the various Town Councils, and local community and will represent a sizable private-sector investment into Bletchley Town Centre and an increased town centre population to support local spend on the high street.
The development is divided into Bletchley View North and Bletchley View South, each with its own first floor podium deck supporting a bio diverse landscape with new trees in wild meadow and lavender gardens.
Designed to Lifetime Home standards, all flat are fully accessible and will benefit from large full length windows and doors each with its own balcony accessed from large living/kitchen rooms with full length glass windows and doors bringing light and views as far as Bletchley Park.
As part of the development, a terrace of modern townhouses will face Albert Street which leads directly into the town centre. They are designed with modern interiors, private gardens and as homes for starter families, will help met the Milton Keynes housing needs.
Peter Dijkhuis, Director at CBRE, who is leading the project said:
“We are delighted with the decision made by Milton Keynes councillors to approve our plans for Bletchley town centre. Our proposals will bring significant investment to Bletchley and act as a catalyst for the revitalisation of the town.”
The site is being promoted by CBRE on behalf of Investec.
