The Milton Keynes Draft Local Plan is out for consultation between Friday 17 March - Friday 9 June 2017. Have your say.

Have your say on Plan:MK by submitting comments:

  • Online via the Milton Keynes Council consultation portal:
  • Via email: Plan:This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • In writing: Development Plans, Civic Offices, 1 Saxon Gate East, Central Milton Keynes, MK9 3EJ

You can find the consultation document here.

Key features of Plan:MK (taken from the Milton Keynes Council website):

  • Build 7,600 new homes across MK: 1,000 new homes in the rural villages in line with neighbourhood plans; a 1,000-home urban extension to the south east; around 5,000 homes within the city; and 600 homes at Eaton Leys.
  • Allocate land for employment south of Caldecotte and job creation through development and growth and opportunities through the East-West Growth Corridor.
  • Land is identified east of the M1 for housing and jobs after 2031. This may come forward earlier once decisions on the new Oxford-Cambridge Expressway are made or should we be struggling to provide enough housing elsewhere in the Borough.
  • Provide different types of properties including affordable homes, housing association and privately rented. 33% of the new housing proposed in the urban extensions will be affordable.
  • Education provision will include a University for MK.
  • Open spaces should be protected and any new housing will have easy access to open areas and parkland.
  • Proper infrastructure is in place in growth areas funded by development including school places, health facilities and utilities like super-fast fibre broadband.

We will be submitting a CPRE Bucks response and will share our position shortly.
