ELECTION DAY: Milton Keynes referendum - What am I voting for?

Election 2015
Election 2015

The UK’s first Yes/No referendum on whether to adopt a Business Neighbourhood Plan will be voted for across Milton Keynes today.

The Central Milton Keynes plan has taken two years to organise by a voluntary alliance of local businesses and community groups.

If given the go ahead, it will act as a blue-print for developing CMK over the next 10 to 15 years.

A core policy is to retain the original, successful layout of CMK with its tree-lined boulevards, open spaces and safe pedestrian routes.

Other policies support a major university, new community and sports facilities, new public transport shuttle service, Market Hall and civic square.
