Plan:MK Draft Plan
Public Consultation 17 March to 9 June 2017

Plan:MK is the development strategy for Milton Keynes outlining how the borough will grow over the next few years. It is MK Council’s new Local Plan for the homes, jobs and infrastructure that will be needed in the borough for the period until 2031. MK Council expects the population in the borough to increase to over 300,000 by 2031, so they need to start managing this growth now.

Plan:MK has been developed using the ideas, comments and feedback from residents and key groups in MK responding to the previous stages of the consultation and independent evidence assessments and the Draft Plan covers how and where future development sites will be.

26,500 new homes will be provided over the next 15 years – most already have planning permission with further homes earmarked for development on brownfield sites and sustainable urban extensions to the east and south of MK.

IMPACT FOR MOULSOE

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 MKC be struggling to provide enough housing elsewhere in the Borough.
