General Information - Milton expanded considerably in the late 1980s when two large housing estates were built between the bypass and the village. This resulted in a doubling of the population between the 1981 and 1991 censuses.
The latest expansion started in 2012 with the development of the North Lodge Park consisting of 88 homes, two football pitches, pavilion and car park, with the first residents moving in April 2014.
The A10 bypass was built between 1976 and 1978 around the west edge of village, splitting Butt Lane into two parts. The nearest station is to the north in the village of Waterbeach, until the Cambridge Science Park- CAMBRIDGE NORTH railway station opens (due to be operational by 2017).
Facilities: The village currently possesses three pubs, all of which are Grade II listed buildings. A fourth pub, The Waggon and Horses, closed July 2014 and reopened as an Italian Restaurant October 2014. A brewery, Milton Brewery, established in June 1999, moved to nearby Waterbeach in July 2012. There are two churches: All Saints' Church, which serves the Church of England parish of Milton, and a New Apostolic Church.
The village has a primary school but no secondary school. Most pupils continue their education at Impington Village College, Cottenham Village College or St. Bede's School, Cambridge. There is also an Agricultural College, part of the College of West Anglia. The Cambridge Science Park lies within the civil parish boundaries.
Land between Milton and Waterbeach has been purchased for building a rowing lake by Cambridge Sport Lakes. Plans for an international-standard 8-lane rowing lake have been under consideration in Cambridge for many years. The original planning permission for the rowing lake was granted in 1995 but subsequently lapsed. However, permission was granted again in 2007.
On 25 February 2015 the UK Footgolf Association opened its East of England headquarters in Milton on the site of the former Milton Park Golf Course.
