Project 5

New Town Heritage Explorers

The New Town heritage Explorers Project is an exciting design and heritage project. It will develop a New Town Heritage toolkit and bring the city’s design heritage to life with an innovative creative programme.

The project will explore and document the social history of MK – the stories of the people who live here, the impact of the buildings on daily life, and what is it really like to live in a city built from scratch.

The project

The project will produce a heritage toolkit to enable local communities to:

  • Use the city’s archives to find out about the history of where they live,
  • Assess the city’s architectural and heritage character: what has worked well, and what not so well?
  • Put forward buildings that could go on the New Town Heritage Register, and
  • Shape the city’s future planning and growth.

The creative programme will involve children, young people and communities to animate the design heritage of the city through a series of innovative activities and events.
