Plan:MK’s Strategic Development Directions of Growth consultation

A 12-week consultation on Plan:MK’s Strategic Development Directions of Growth started on Wednesday 13 January on four possible directions of growth for the MK Borough.

The four options have been presented as a direct result of public comment


The four directions of growth were developed following a series of workshops held last year and a range of stakeholders, including members of the public were asked to discuss their priorities and ambitions for the future of Milton Keynes. These potential development options include development to the West, South-West and/or South of the present city, development east of the M1, intensification and redevelopment in the existing urban area, and one or more satellite settlements in the rural area.


Their feedback has been summarised in this consultation document and the Council is now asking for further comments from the public on these possible directions of growth, and asks if it should form the long-term plan for the Borough.

Feedback about what people think the overall ‘vision’ for Milton Keynes should be including any long term opportunities that could be encouraged is also welcome.


Additional information on Plan:MK and these development options can be found on the Council’s website at www.milton-keynes/

The consultation document will also be available in the local libraries and in other locations around the Borough.

There will also be events arranged throughout January, February and March when Planning officers will be on hand to explain the consultation and answer any questions you may have.
