The Marston Vale lies between Milton Keynes and Bedford. It is pepper-potted with modern villages, large lakes and an emerging community forest. Throughout the Vale, infrastructure is already excellent. O&H currently have schemes for five village extensions, totalling around 3,000 homes. The regeneration potential of this former home to the UK’s brickmaking industry is clear and O&H are working with organisations, such as, the Forest of Marston Vale and the Bedford to Milton Keynes Waterway Trust to explore how their aspirations correspond with plans for a new community.
