Have your say as housebuilder asks for views

Proposals to build 85 new homes in western Milton Keynes are to be unveiled at a public exhibition on Tuesday.

Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey is inviting people to have their say on plans for a new residential development, including affordable housing, on land west of Dansteed Way.

The site, which forms part of the Milton Keynes Western Expansion Area, has already been granted outline planning permission by the local authority.

The public consultation event will give local residents, businesses, community groups and other interested parties the chance to find out more about the scheme and discuss the plans with the Taylor Wimpey project team.

Comments received from those who attend the event will help to shape the development proposals before a planning application is finalised for submission to Milton Keynes Council in due course.

Emma Walton, planning manager for Taylor Wimpey South Midlands, said: “As a considerate, responsible developer, we want to give people the chance to have their say on development plans for their area.

“We are confident this scheme will provide an attractive and sustainable development of high-quality homes to meet a range of requirements – including affordable properties for local people in housing need – in accordance with the aspirations and requirements of the approved Milton Keynes Western Expansion Area.”

The proposed development site is located to the west of Dansteed Way and the north of Hazeley Wood, with access to be taken from a new road being built to the west of Grange Farm roundabout.

It has been identified as a key location for the regeneration and sustainable growth of the western side of the town.

The exhibition is at Shenley Church End Parish Hall on Tuesday, May 12, between 3pm and 7pm.
