New public park at Brooklands gets approval

Tue 02 Mar 2010

Brooklands Cricket PitchThe development will include a range of homes alongside two new schools and health and community services, and the Milton Keynes Partnership Planning Committee this week unanimously approved the creation of 
a second public park. 

The 30 acre park will provide a new cricket pitch, four new football pitches and two children's play areas and will, along with Brooklands Meadows, scheduled to be completed in the summer, provide additional open space for the new community of over 2500 homes.  As well as providing space for leisure, the tree edged park will include five large ponds and wetland areas that will create habitat for plants and wildlife to enhance the existing natural landscape of Broughton Brook.
The layout of the park has been designed to accommodate the route of the proposed Milton Keynes to Bedford Canal along its southern boundary at some time in the future and its northern boundary will be overlooked by new homes.

"We are delighted that  MKP has granted planning approval as it will enable us to continue our strategy of creating attractive parks, places and facilities at Brooklands ahead of new residents moving into the neighbourhood." comments Simon Elcock, Project Director for the developer Places for People.
