MK Council already agreed in 2015 to the principle of building a new community of up to 1,140 homes, primary and secondary schools, shops and a GP health centre at Glebe Farm, near Wavendon.

But the various developers of the land which sits on the eastern fringe of MK now have to show that they can meet a series of 53 conditions before they can go ahead. Many of the conditions have already gone through the system by the lead developer, Gallagher Estates.

Now Bovis Homes has presented the council with its plans for 198 homes, parking and open space on a 3.01 hectare slab of land that it is responsible for developing at Glebe Farm. They are for access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale.


When developed there are proposed to be 42 two bedroom houses, 90 three bedroom houses, seven four bedroom houses, 17 one bedroom flats and 42 two bedroom flats. Of those, 59 will be affordable.

Bovis Homes says it attended a meeting of Wavendon Parish Council in April 2019 where the plans were greeted positively.

This plan and others are now available for public comment on MK Council’s planning portal.
