Have your say on Milton Keynes 15 year plan

editorial image

Residents and business are being asked to give their views on proposals for how the Milton Keynes Borough should grow and develop over the next 15 years.

With the population expected to increase to over 300,000 by 2031, it is vital that we plan how this growth can be managed now.

The public consultation on Plan:MK will run from 12noon on March 17 until 5pm on June 9.

This is your opportunity to tell the council what you think about things like housing, transport and roads, infrastructure, green open space, employment plus health and education provision.

Plan:MK is split into chapters each concentrating on key areas. These chapters have been created and developed using the ideas, comments and feedback from residents, councillors, professionals and key groups in MK.

Plan:MK and its associated documents including FAQs can be viewed online, in the Civic Offices or local libraries.

Councillor Liz Gifford said: “Plan:MK was created by council officers with input from councillors and incorporated the thoughts, ideas and wishes of MK residents.

“It clearly sets out what local people want for their local area. I would encourage everyone to get involved in this consultation so they can learn about the plans and most importantly, have their say about the future of their city”

“As MK turns 50 we have been looking back at events and developments that have shaped and built this area; through Plan:MK we look to the future and ensure that growth is sustainable, meets the needs of the residents and protects all the unique elements that make MK special”.
