Council Plan 2016 – 2020

The revised Council Plan 2016 – 2020 was approved by Council on 20 June 2018. The four year plan sets out how Milton Keynes Council will work to achieve its ambitions for Milton Keynes. The Plan recognises the principles and values of a co-operative council and how these connect to the Council’s values.

The  Business Plan provides a comprehensive overview of the key milestones and targets to deliver the commitments that reflect Council Plan’s sixteen key priorities (set out below) that sit under three overall aims  for Milton Keynes: to be a place of opportunity, an affordable place and a healthy place. 

The sequence of the priorities is set out to reflect the most significant and those that will have the greatest impact.  To ensure delivery for each of the priority themes there are specific commitments for action.  Progress against delivery of the Business Plan is reported at quarterly intervals to councillors and other stakeholders please see the links below.

Partnership Agreement

The result of the Local Government Elections in May this year resulted in no overall control meaning that no single party was in a position to govern Milton Keynes.  

However, the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties agreed it was vital for the future of Milton Keynes to formally agree to work in partnership continuing the arrangement established in 2016.

The Agreement to Work in Partnership document (PDF, 86KB) sets out the vision and priorities of the partnership.
