MKDP delivers more affordable homes in Medbourne

Construction of a 19-home residential site at Pascal Drive, Medbourne, built by local developer Paul Newman New Homes on land owned by MKDP, will complete shortly. It will provide a variety of high quality affordable and market rate housing in Milton Keynes.

The scheme comprises 19 homes of various sorts including one, two and three bed apartments and detached houses. The affordable homes comprise of six apartments and one three-bedroom house and will be managed by Hightown Housing Association.

MKDP Property Development Director Matthew Green said: “We have an ongoing and successful working relationship with Paul Newman New Homes. This has continued on this site, which has seen us jointly develop an innovative approach to delivering high-quality homes for private sale and affordable rents.”

Paul Newman of Paul Newman New Homes Limited said: “Having previously developed a site in Ladbroke Grove with MKDP, we were delighted to be given the opportunity to deliver this site with them as well. In line with our normal policy, we have designed an individual development using the same high-quality materials for both private and affordable units, which has resulted in a beautiful traditional development, whereby the units complement one another and the affordable are truly tenure blind. There has been huge interest in the development and we expect it to be fully completed by the Autumn. We look forward to working with both MKDP and Hightown in the future to continue delivering high quality developments in Milton Keynes.”

Hightown Housing Association Chief Executive, David Bogle, said: “We are delighted to be a part of this fast-developing community in Milton Keynes. Hightown’s aim is to provide as many homes as we can at below market rates to help tackle the housing and homelessness crisis.”
