Milton Keynes centre receives grade II listing

Milton Keynes’ 1970s shopping centre will today be listed at grade II, in a major victory for architectural campaigners over the building’s management.

Designed by Christopher Woodward alongside Derek walker and Stuart Mosscrop, it is one of four listing decisions on modern buildings due to be announced by architecture minister John Penrose today.

Coventry Market, built in 1957 and designed by the city architecture department, along with Sheffield’s 1964 Castle House co-operative department store, will retain their protection after he rejected appeals against their listing at grade II last year. But Penrose turned down the application to list the 1966 gatehouse at St Anne’s College, Oxford.
