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, what is it really like to live in a city built from scratch.
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.
