Tinkers Bridge Facts and Figures

As part of the preparation for regeneration in November 2015, the following figures were circulated for Tinkers Bridge

  • Number of properties (2011): 376
  • Population (2011): 1037, 74.9% white, 12.3% Black/Black British, 7.3% Asian/Asian British, 5.5% others
  • Life expectancy (Woughton ward): Male: 72.58, Female 78.20, All 75.43

On area and housing density, there is some dispute. The original regeneration figure of 12.2 dwellings per Hectare comes from "The 2014 figure from MKi Observatory (which includes Passmore and measures approx. 31 hectares) is 414 dwellings, which results in a gross density for Tinkers Bridge of c.13 dwellings per hectare." David Lee, in Feb 2016 concluded "The area of Tinkers Bridge, excluding land belonging to The Parks Trust, I have estimated at about 16 hectare, so this gives a density of about 339/16 = 21 dwellings/hectare."

For national statistics, Tinkers bridge is in region Milton Keynes 023C E01016843 which includes the southern sections of Netherfield and Passmore, containing about 549 households. This is used for the Index of Multiple Deprivation, which MKC used to select Tinkers Bridge as a priority regeneration area.
