Western Expansion Area (WEA)



The Western Expansion Area was allocated for development as part of the Milton Keynes Local Plan in 2005. It will be the largest of the expansion areas in Milton Keynes, accommodating around 6,550 homes, 10 – 20ha of employment land and a number of key buildings [explained further in the next chapter]. Outline planning consent was granted in 2007 for both areas; Whitehouse application 05/00291/MKPCO & Fairfield’s application 06/00123/MKPCO.

development framework for the WEA was adopted by Milton Keynes Council in 2005 and sets out the master plan for the site. In addition the framework designates 16 design principles to guide developers and promote a modern 21st Century sustainable expansion to Milton Keynes. These principles focus on concepts of sustainable construction, integration of green space, priority routes for public transport and a multi-use public realm.

Details of Planning Applications can be found on our Public Access Web Pages. If you have any questions about the development framework, please contact Planning Enquiries on 01908 252358 or by email at planning.enquiries@milton-keynes.gov.uk
