Culture & Arts

Thank you to David Lock Associates for sponsoring the Culture and Arts award.

David Lock Associates (DLA) is one of the UK’s leading, independent town planning and urban design consultancies. Headquartered in Central Milton Keynes for over 30 years, we offer our various and diverse clients bespoke strategies for planning, masterplanning and placemaking. We pride ourselves on delivering successful, commercially aware projects at all scales. In particular we are at the forefront of proactively addressing the housing crisis through establishing innovative methods of delivery and facilitating construction of new communities supported by infrastructure at every level.

We believe that everyone has a right to a good home in a great place which is safe, healthy and uplifting and we are committed to applying our knowledge and experience to help deliver sustainable and equitable development in the right locations through intelligent spatial planning and urban design.

Here in Milton Keynes, we continue to be engaged in a wide range of projects including Brooklands and Magna Park MK. In so doing we provide not only the homes and community facilities necessary to support sustained growth, but also a wide range of employment opportunities that continue to make Milton Keynes a vital economic driver for the south east and UK as a whole.

Supporting our community through the work of local charities is also very much part of our ethos. We provide assistance to local charities through the Milton Keynes Community Foundation, we are corporate sponsors of the Milton Keynes Gallery, founding sponsors of Milton Keynes Theatre and we continue to support the City Discovery Centre, the Milton Keynes Parks Trust and other local groups working in our community.

We were delighted to receive recognition at last year’s Awards, winning the Professional Services Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award for our founder David Lock.
