Residents support MK canalside development

Crest Nicholson and MKDP held an exhibition of their proposals for Campbell Park Canalside at the centre:mk. People were asked to comment on the proposed development of the 21 acre site bordering the Grand Union Canal to the east of Campbell Park.

Almost 90% of those who responded to the exhibited plans were supportive and welcomed the plans. The most popular elements were the water-based parts of the development including the new 110 berth marina and the canal bridge linking Campbell Park to Newlands. The proposal provides 380 new apartments and town houses with integrated car parking, a local convenience store, a café, restaurant, nursery and a pub.

The development sets the location and provides the starting point of the proposed Bedford to Milton Keynes Waterway Park (B&MK).

Charles Macdonald, chief executive of MKDP says: “We are very encouraged that this exciting scheme received such positive feedback. The observations and suggestions made have been extremely helpful and have been fed back to the architects who are working on the detailed plans for submission to the MK Council’s planning department.”

For people who weren’t able to get to the exhibition but would like to know more about the proposed development, the exhibition boards may be downloaded from the tab on the right.
