Research and policy planning
The Plan for Milton Keynes is the strategy which will guide the development of the new city. At its simplest, it is an approach to guiding the urbanisation of a large piece of land. When it was published, the Plan was widely acclaimed as a major step forward in town planning. Critics thought that the flexibility of the Plan was its major strength - clearly it is not possible to identify the dominant and minority life styles for which a city should be catering over the next century. The Plan permits many changes to take place in the built form in response to changing economic and social conditions.
