Have your say on plans for city centre’s future

Sep 20, 2012

The draft Supplementary Planning Document aims to plan the future development of Central Milton Keynes to maintain its unique design and growth is properly planned for the next 15 years.


The plan also builds and expands on the council’s core strategy vision for Milton Keynes.


The SPD is one of two plans for the central area of Milton Keynes and is being prepared in parallel with a Business Neighbourhood Plan – both are key parts of the government’s new planning reforms under the Localism Act.


The framework aims to attract development into Central Milton Keynes by providing strong building blocks for the future and setting out the councils’ commitment to investment in this key area.


The business community has the opportunity to have its say on the Business Neighbourhood Development Plan being put forward by the CMK Alliance, a group comprising representatives of business and the public and violuntary sectors.


The plan will go under the spotlight at a presentation and discussion on October 10 at Network Rail’s new national centre The Quadrant:MK. The event has been organised in partnership with the Milton Keynes Business Council. Booking is essential – to reserve a place, e-mail [email protected]

The council has used experience gained from similar previous documents such as the 2002 CMK Development Framework and projects like Vizion and the Hub in preparation of this draft document in order to outline principles that it believes will facilitate economic growth as well as providing a high quality city centre for all visitors, residents and employees.

View the draft Supplementary Planning Document either online at www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/udla or in libraries across the borough.

Two public exhibitions of the council plan take place at Acorn House in Midsummer Boulevard on September 27 12.30pm-7pm and October 3 11am-7pm. Both plans will be on display at exhibitions on October 10, 17, 24, 31 11am-7pm and November 7 12.30pm-7pm.


Consultation on the council plan ends on November 12. The CMK Alliance plan is available from October 10 to November 18 on the wiki website www.cmkalliance.co.uk
