South East Milton Keynes Strategic Urban Extension

South East Milton Keynes Strategic Urban Extension (or SEMK) is a draft allocation within Plan:MK, covering an area of land approximately 210 hectares in size encompassed by Tilbrook, Browns Wood and Wavendon to the North, Woburn Sands to the East, the Green Sands Ridge to the south, and Bow Brickhill to the west.

The draft allocation within Plan:MK, under Policy SD11, allocates the land for around 3,000 homes, 7 Gypsy and Traveller pitches, and a range of social and green infrastructure provision.

The Council has commenced work on a Development Framework SPD to guide the development of SEMK. This SPD would be a material consideration in any future planning applications for development of the SEMK allocation.

South East MK Local Stakeholder Group

A South East MK Local Stakeholder Group has been established following meetings and workshops with the Danesborough Forum (see below) where it was agreed that a specific group be established with the purpose of discussing the development of South East MK. The group is likely to meet approximately once a month to discuss a range of issues associated with the development. Participation in the Local Stakeholder Group is without prejudice to that organisation’s or individual’s public position with regards to the principle of developing the South East MK allocation within Plan:MK. Papers for the meetings of Local Stakeholder Group are published below, including the Terms of Reference for the group.

Local Stakeholder Engagement

The Council has engaged with the local Danesborough Forum which is a group local parish and town councils and other local civic groups who represent communities in and around Aspley Guise, Aspley Heath, Bow Brickhill, Little Brickhill, Walton, Wavendon, and Woburn Sands.  The aim of this engagement is to enable local community representatives the inform the preparation of the Development Framework and to be informed on the preparation of associated technical work being undertaken to aid the preparation of the Development Framework. Officers from Milton Keynes Council have attended Danesborough Forum meetings during mid to late 2018, and workshops have been planned for January 2019 to discuss the aims and objectives for SEMK, taking into account other development sites within the area, such as the South Caldecotte Strategic Employment Allocation.

Papers of the meetings and workshops with the Danesborough Forum are published below.
