Students from Denbigh, Radcliffe and Kents Hill Park schools came together at Denbigh School to give their ideas about how Milton Keynes might develop in the future.
The event was part of an engagement programme being carried out by the MK Futures 2050 Team at MK Council to develop a framework for how they can best deliver the vision for Milton Keynes in 2050.
During the event, the students got the chance to design their own neighbourhoods on a ‘community-building’ app, which helped them overcome town-planning issues to create inspiring places for people to live. Planners from MK Council were on hand to help the students develop their ideas.
The students also heard from the MK Futures Team about the ‘Six Big Projects’ included in the 2050 vision, including the development of MK:U, MK’s City Centre University.
Andy Squires, Headteacher of Denbigh School says, "We are pleased to be able to host this event which gave students from across Milton Keynes the opportunity to learn about the vision for our City going forward and to design neighbourhoods that they would want themselves and their families to live in."
