In 2004 Chris Cobbold directed a major study examining the future of Milton Keynes. Working closely with civic and business leaders, the team developed a shared vision for the city that has stood the test of time. The team reviewed the vision in 2009. With minor adjustment the original vision was endorsed. The partners continue to work towards the goal of Milton Keynes being a major international city in the 2030s. Progress has been achieved in delivering all five of the transformational projects identified in the strategy.
