built to Parker-Morris standards, which defined minimum space requirements for public housing in the 1960s. Ken Baker has reached a similar conclusion about planners attacking MKs grid: The very thing that the flexibility delivered to them, that has given them the competitive edge, they want to destroy. Winkelman, who is popular in MK but still despised in parts of south London for relocating Wimbledon FC to Milton Keynes, offered reassurance to residents who fear MKs singular qualities and particularly its grid are being destroyed by new development. The light that washes over them is a sour green, making the whole scene look unwell.
Carole Mills, the council chief executive, suggests so, although she wont be drawn on her vision for MK thats a matter for the commission and elected councillors. MKs defenders argue that such philistinism threatens a modern masterpiece which deserves to be recognised as a world heritage site. She successfully fought to stop a new shopping centre that would have destroyed the multicultural market but failed to halt a multistorey car park (the car-bunkle) which will disfigure the eastern end of the shopping building. Perhaps I was seeing things through Inokis eyes or maybe it was simply spring, with the waft of freshly mown grass and cherry blossom on the breeze, but I began to marvel at the grace of CMKs broad boulevards. This is where the councils planning department has failed. Blending so many ideologies, comprised of high glass walls that reflect back its inhabitants with eerie power, Milton Keynes deserves more than a PR version of its futuristic roots. Further back theres cobbled roads with white farm gates. Im standing on a public boulevard, I replied.
Local residents and architects passionately defend what they see as the special qualities of Milton Keynes against private developers trying to make profits and planners desperate to meet home-building targets and satisfy an orthodoxy that demands high-density, walkable cities. More important, the way Milton Keynes was built and paid for is increasingly offered as a solution to the housing crisis in Britain. Its not everybodys cup of tea but its wrong to try and change. By 1967, when Milton Keynes was formally designated by the government, the flaws in places such as Stevenage, Cumbernauld and Crawley, constructed under the 1946 New Towns Act intended to rebuild communities devastated by the war, had become apparent. Parks and broad grid-roads are conspicuously lacking on MKs expanding periphery, which I explored with Henk van Aswegen, director of the City Discovery Centre, a charity that maintains the corporations archives. Tahir, of Broughton, Milton Keynes, grabbed the mother's arm and dragged her to the floor before touching her "inappropriately over her clothing". The stark contrast between Milton Keynes spacious older gridsquares and cramped new estates seems to prove that private developers cant create high-quality places. Expansion in Milton Keynes is no longer funded by a development corporation empowered by the government to purchase cheap agricultural land. The parish councils plan is localism in action if it is ignored, then the governments championing of localism looks meaningless. Underpass (1983) by Fionnuala Boyd and Leslie Evans is forceful and genuinely weird.
