Newport Pagnell Neighbourhood Plan Modifications publicity period

Summary

In January 2021, Newport Pagnell Town Council submitted Modifications to its Neighbourhood Plan to Milton Keynes Council.  The Modifications to the Plan are now being published in accordance with Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Plans (General) Regulations 2012.

This is the final stage to make comments on the Modifications to the Plan.  The Plan and its supporting documents are available to view at: https://www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/planning-and-building/planning-policy/newport-pagnell-neighbourhood-plan

  • Satisfy the legal requirements for neighbourhood plans.
  • Change the nature of the Plan.
