About this Event

Join Women in Planning South Midlands for our next event showcasing the MK Futures 2050 projects and how these are shaping the city, plus a presentation from Starship on the rise of the delivery pods in Milton Keynes, which represent a growing modal shift for transport planning and logistics.

Being located at the centre of the Oxford-Cambridge Arc, Milton Keynes is well placed to pave the way for delivering projects that will enable the city to continue to grow and prosper. It is also poised to set the precedent for innovation in transport and logistics.
