Milton Keynes named a city to mark Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
Milton Keynes is officially a city!
The successful bid comes after three previous applications over the last 22 years. In 2000, an application was submitted for the millennium – then again in 2002 for the Golden Jubilee, and 2012 for the Diamond Jubilee.
Council leader Cllr Pete Marland said: “People have always said that Milton Keynes looks like a city, feels like a city and now we can say, it is a city.”
The award confirms the importance of Milton Keynes to the regional and national economy, he added. “City status will make people even prouder to call Milton Keynes their home and gives us the platform to make our great city even greater.”
Well done to everyone involved who helped us get there!
