Applications Going to Development Control Committee/Panel

If the application you wish to view is going to a Development Control Committee (DCC) meeting then you may wish to read the report that will be presented in the committee agenda. This can be found using the following link: 

Contacting your Ward Councillor

As a result of viewing an application you may wish to get in contact with your local Ward Member/Councillor to discuss the proposal. If you are unsure of whom they are or how to contact them please use the My Milton Keynes mapping system and enter your postcode.

What happens after the Council has made a decision

You can telephone (quoting the application reference number or address) or:

Only the applicant has a right of appeal so it is important that you voice any concerns before a decision is taken by the Council.

However, if you consider that the Council's decision was flawed, for example, because inadequate consideration was given to a relevant factor, you may make a complaint. If you are not satisfied with the response having exhausted the Council's internal procedures you may take your complaints to the Local Government Ombudsman. 

If you were notified of the application or have submitted written comments we will let you know if the applicant appeals. We will let the Planning Inspectorate have copies of your letters.

Once work is under way you should let us know if you believe that it has not been carried out in accordance with the approved plans. We will check the situation and tell you what we are able to do.
