Are you looking for city plumbing Milton Keynes?

Ever since Milton Keynes was formed, there’s been heated debate about city status. 

Is MK a large town or a city?

Depends on who you ask.

Technically, a city has to have a cathedral and as far this commercial plumbing company knows, MK doesn’t have one. 

Leicester, Birmingham and Cambridge, neighbouring cities, have cathedrals – but not MK.

And yet.

Two years ago, the Duke of Kent visited Milton Keynes

Nothing unusual about royalty visiting our boulevards and roundabouts you may say but on his visit he referred to our town as a city.

Pete Marland, council leader in 2018, commented:

“The Duke of Kent says we’re a city, so I’ll take that.”

But does the place status matter?

We think so.

MK is one of the largest towns in Britain. It has facilities and shopping that would grace any cityscape. It is superbly connected by road and rail and has a high quality of life, with its many green areas, natural and man made lakes. It has a growing population of 240,000, decent air quality according to a recent report (perhaps due to the lack of manufacturing sites?) and its modernity. Parkland forms 25% of the town’s surface.

MK is a place Elite Contracting Ltd are delighted to be associated with. 

What makes it special?

We quote from Wikipedia:

Facilities include a 1,400-seat theatre, a municipal art gallery, two multiplex cinemas, an ecumenical central church, a 400-seat concert hall, a teaching hospital, a 30,500-seat football stadium, an indoor ski-slope and a 65,000-capacity open-air concert venue. There are five railway stations (one inter-city). The Open University is based here and there is a campus of the University of Bedfordshire. Most sports are represented at amateur level; Red Bull Racing (Formula One), MK Dons (association football) and Milton Keynes Lightning (ice hockey) are its professional teams. The Peace Pagoda overlooking Willen Lake was the first such to be built in Europe.

Milton Keynes has one of the more successful economies in the UK, ranked highly against a number of criteria. It has the UK’s fifth highest number of business startups per capita (but equally of business failures). It is home to several major national and international companies.

What this means for you as a resident of Milton Keynes, whether you’re a business or resident, is that in you’re in a good place to work and live, with bright future prospects. Many large towns and cities are seeing outward population migration; Milton Keynes (large town or city) is seeing inward migration.
