Central Bletchley Prospectus


Milton Keynes Council [MKC] is seeking to promote urban renewal within Central Bletchley by capitalising on the, once-in-a-generation, opportunities that will flow from delivery of the East-West Rail project.

East-West Rail will place Bletchley at the intersection of strategic east-west and north-south rail routes linking key centres of economic activity. As a consequence, Bletchley will have unique rail connectivity at the heart of the government’s flagship ‘Oxford to Cambridge Arc’ initiative, which, as recognised by the National Infrastructure Commission, has the potential to transform this area of England into a hub of knowledge intensive industry that can compete on the world stage.

With a view to capturing the wider benefits of investment in new, strategic, rail infrastructure, the Council Plan 2016-22 committed to develop a Prospectus for Bletchley, by February 2020.

In line with that commitment, the Central Bletchley Prospectus was formally approved for publication, via a Delegated Decision taken by the Cabinet Member for Planning & Transport, on 16 December 2019 [see link to final Prospectus document opposite].

The Prospectus has a promotional purpose and is designed to highlight and generate interest in significant renewal opportunities. It is not a formal planning document and does not aim to create planning policy; neither is it a masterplan.

It is intended that publication of the Prospectus will be a precursor to production and adoption of a Supplementary Planning Document which would be a formal planning document providing guidance for future development within the Central Bletchley Prospectus Area.

Thank you to everyone that contributed to production of, or commented on, the Draft Prospectus.
