Crest Nicholson has a bold and creative vision for Campbell Wharf ‘ a new waterside community and destination that will raise the bar for development in Milton Keynes. Private and public amenity space is a vital component ofthis, with a new public square, and a network of footpaths and cycleways, that sit alongside the canal and marina, linked by an innovative new three-span footbridge. Residents will get to enjoy private amenity space in the form ofbalconies, terraces and gardens, while each apartment block will enjoy green landscaped resident-only courtyards.

Planning History

Crest Nicholson has worked closely with the award winning architects TP Bennett and the Milton Keynes Development Partnership (which owns the land) to design this cutting-edge development. Planning permission for the land to the west of the canal, comprising the residential units and commercial space was granted in September 2017. Permission for the land to the east, comprising the pub, canal boat marina and start of the proposed Bedford & Milton Keynes waterway park was subsequently approved in early 2018. First occupations are due from late 2019, with overall completion due in 2024.
