Crest Nicholson welcomed the Member of Parliament for Milton Keynes North, Mark Lancaster, to Campbell Wharf on 1st March to see the latest progress on the exciting canal-side development and the new homes under construction.
As well visiting the new marina which was recently filled with 25,000 cubic litres of water from the canal, Mark Lancaster MP was one of the first to cross the spectacular footbridge which provides a view across the whole site and will soon form an important link between the two sides of the development.
The canal-side development was identified as part of the original Milton Keynes masterplan. Since work began in the middle of last year, progress on site has been dramatic and the first residents are expected to move in this Autumn. When complete, with new and improved pedestrian and waterway access, the development will deliver a total of £100m investment to the local area and breathe a new lease of life to previously underused space.
Campbell Wharf is a unique 383-home development bordering the Grand Union Canal on the edge of Campbell Park. A number of shared ownership apartments will be made available through bpha, and in total 115 of the new homes are classified affordable. Along with the much-needed additional homes and the local shops and facilities on the Campbell Park side of the Canal, Campbell Wharf will also boast a new marina and canal-side pub on the Newlands side.
MP Mark Lancaster, Member for Milton Keynes North, said:
“This is such an exciting and inspirational new development for Milton Keynes, bringing together all the elements of work and leisure with the potential of creating a new and vibrant community. Many congratulations to all who have worked in partnership to create an incredible destination to add to the MK portfolio.”
Peter Cusdin, Development Director at Crest Nicholson said:
“We are proud of the rate at which Campbell Wharf is progressing and a particular highlight was showing the MP the new marina and the construction of the mixed-use development overlooking the canal. The high-quality and the wide range of facilities here will attract visitors and residents for many years.”
