Significant Milton Keynes Development Given Go-Ahead

Deemed one of the most significant retail and leisure developments in Central Milton Keynes in over a decade, the scheme, designed by 3DReid, will deliver a new dining quarter spread over two levels, a five-screen boutique cinema and an extra 100,000 sq ft of space.

Intu submitted the planning application back in May 2014. Milton Keynes council gave the proposals the green light on 3rd September 2015.

Regional Director of intu, Martin Breeden, commented: “We’re delighted that our proposals have been approved. intu Milton Keynes is already the premium fashion pitch in the city and these plans will strengthen its position, creating a contemporary destination for our customers to shop, eat, relax and socialise.”

“We’ve had some good interest in the scheme as brands recognise the opportunity that Milton Keynes provides.”

The 430,000 sq ft shopping centre has 16 million visitors a year and comprises top retail brands such as Apple, H&M, Hugo Boss, Superdry, Zara and Debenhams.

These proposals fall in line with ambition of Central Milton Keynes to continue growing the local Neighbourhood Development Plan, which calls for an expansion and diversification of the retail offering in the city centre, with a great mixture of dining and leisure in the evening.

The proposed work for intu Milton Keynes forms part of the £1.5bn development pipeline by intu, which is to be implemented over the next 10 years.
