Recently revealed as the 11th most enterprising city in the UK, Milton Keynes is home to over 14,000 businesses, with 341 people in the area for every one business set up (1). With thousands of growing local firms and one of the highest start-up rates in the country, the ever-increasing number of employment opportunities and growing population makes L&Q’s Saxon Reach a great place for families, professionals and downsizers to put down roots.
Milton Keynes is a buzzing hub for business, ideal for people searching for employment, or residents wanting a thriving local scene. From coffee shops and restaurants, such as HomeGround MK and Nonna’s, to clothing shops and furniture stores, like Rags Boutique and Outhouse by Hand, Milton Keynes has a wide range of independent businesses, all of which are accessible for residents at Saxon Reach. In addition, the area is home to the headquarters of a number of large national corporations, including Europe’s largest indoor ski slope and one of the biggest shopping centres in the UK. Providing homes for the rapidly growing population in Milton Keynes, L&Q’s Saxon Reach development will place residents on the doorstep of all the activity in the city centre.
Christine Osborne, Sales and Customer Services Director (Counties) at L&Q, comments: “Our homes at Saxon Reach have seen high levels of interest, and have proven extremely popular with a range of buyers, from families putting down roots, to first time buyers and downsizers. Milton Keynes creates the feel of a small village, whilst living in a large thriving city, thanks to its wide selection of local independent businesses that are supported by the whole community, and we’re delighted that our residents are discovering the independent gems of the city. With an ongoing increase of new business, and the rapidly increasing population, Milton Keynes is the perfect location for buyers searching for their forever home, and now is a great time for people to buy at Saxon Reach.”
Saxon Reach is part of the wider Glebe Farm development area, a growing new residential quarter for Milton Keynes, which will meet the demands of the budding town. Glebe Farm will deliver new retail and commercial facilities, and an extension of the Milton Keynes Redway system – a 200-mile network of shared use paths for cyclists and pedestrians. Perfect for families, the site will also be home to a new school – welcoming children from primary age up to the end of secondary school
The development is one of the first developments forming part of L&Q’s New-Build Homes: Quality Standard promise, a commitment to delivering premium fixtures, fittings and appliances as standard; at no additional cost to the buyer.
