This website explains the details of plans to develop land to the South West of Milton Keynes, including the documents that support our planning applications, the changes that have been made as a result of public consultation and the benefits of the development of the area.
The original planning applications were submitted to both Aylesbury Vale District Council and Milton Keynes Council in January 2015. Since then, the South West Milton Keynes Consortium has been working closely with both authorities through the mechanism of a Planning Performance Agreement.
The proposals, by the Consortium, will create a new neighbourhood for Milton Keynes and include:
- up to 1,855 homes, up to 30% of which will be affordable housing
- land required to provide a route for a Bletchley Southern Bypass
- land reserved for a 6GP surgery
- a primary school with early years provision
- a site for a secondary school
- an employment area
- over 53 hectares of green space including parkland, sports and recreational facilities
The Consortium is now proposing formal revisions to the applications, which we have submitted to both Councils. Full details of the proposed amendments can be found here.
The proposed development will help to meet Aylesbury Vale and Milton Keynes’ growing housing needs. It will also support the city’s ambition for growth. The economic benefits will include:
- the creation of around 475 jobs during construction including opportunities for apprenticeships
- 2,000 additional employment opportunities created to service the needs of new residents to the area and also as a result of the new office park, schools and neighbourhood centre
