Of State significance as a rare implementation of the planning principles of the Radburn traffic separation idea with communal ownership of community facilities and very extensive community parkland in an extremely successful development.
The Milgate Park Estate is notable for the extremely generous allocation of parkland and waterways with facilities such as two tennis courts, a netball court, football ground and playing facilities that are owned by the residents through a Home Owners' Association. Pedestrian and vehicular traffic is completely separated. There is no through traffic and only Landscape Drive is not a cul-de-sac. There are no overhead powerlines, footpaths and very few fences. House numbers are in the kerbs. Sites are slightly smaller than usual to compensate. Maintenance of the estate is of an extremely high standard. No individual houses are of interest.
