The Development Plan and SPDs/SPGs

Development Plan 

The following documents outline the existing development and use of land for Milton Keynes, including the appropriate planning application policies:

Core Strategy (2013)

Local Plan (2005)

Minerals Policy

Waste Development Plan Document

Neighbourhood Plans

Following a successful referendum, neighbourhood plans became part of the Development Plan, taking precedence over the existing non-strategic policies. Details of all neighbourhood plans within the borough are available here.

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs)/Guidance (SPGs)

SPDs provide detailed guidance on policies and proposals in the Development Plan documents. These are not subject to an independent examination, and have a simpler preparation process than Development Plan documents. They must, however, relate to a policy in the Development Plan or saved Local Plan, and cannot be used to set a policy that should be the subject of independent examination.
