Milton Keynes & Surrounding Areas

Location: Milton Keynes & Surrounding Areas

Milton Keynes is recognized as one of the fastest growing cities in the UK.


With significant population and employment growth and high levels of productivity, Milton Keynes has been identified by Centre for Cities as one of five Fast Growth Cities, with significant potential for future growth.

Milton Keynes has attracted more than 500 inward investors and is home to some of the largest concentrations of North American, European and Asian firms in the UK. Between 2010 and 2016, its business base grew by an amazing 34%.

The city is consistently ranked at the top of economic bench marking surveys. In 2015 Centre for Cities ranked Milton Keynes as number one for all job growth in the last decade, the number one location for start-ups outside of London; and within the top ten for new patents registered. The UK Powerhouse quarterly reports consistently list Milton Keynes as one of the top cities for employment and GVA growth and the city was ranked as the second best place to work in the UK by recruitment specialists Glassdoor in 2016.

The second phase of Milton Keynes' expansion is now underway. This new growth will see the city compete economically and culturally with other elite cities across the world.
