Planning

The planning authority for our area is Milton Keynes Council. The Town Council is a statutory consultee so Milton Keynes Council is required to consult with us before reaching a decision on relevant planning applications. Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Council works to influence local development control, land use and spatial plans as well as aiming to promote regeneration in our area.

Milton Keynes Council will be processing planning applications as usual. Please contact us or your Milton Keynes councillors if you have questions or concerns about specific applications. Please find more information in this document from Milton Keynes Council about practices during Covid-19.

Individual Planning Applications

The Town Council aims to review all planning applications which are made in our parish and submit our considered comments to Milton Keynes Council which is the Local Planning Authority. The Town Council is not a planning authority and Milton Keynes Council does not have to agree with our views although it does have to consider them before it decides to grant or refuse planning permission.

The Town Council’s comments on proposed developments are made on behalf of the whole community and must be relevant to national and local planning policies and the legal framework for decision making.

Planning applications are reviewed in Full Council or the Planning Committee meetings and members of the public are encouraged to attend these meetings to observe decision-making, to contact and to submit written representations to the Town Council or to speak during the public speaking time at council meetings. Please follow this link to find out how to contact the Town Council: Contact Us - Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Council.

Please visit the Milton Keynes Council Public Access System to access planning applications.

 Local Development Plan and Regeneration

The Town Council also aims to influence the planning policies of Milton Keynes Council especially those contained in the local development plan (Draft Plan:MK, Local Plan and Core Strategy etc). This is undertaken by participating in consultations on behalf of the community and actively advocating for the community on issues such as location of housing, joined up infrastructure and homes, completion of the east/west rail link, the development of an Oxford-Cambridge expressway and development of the town centre among others. The Town Council recognises that existing facilities within Bletchley need investment and regeneration and the Town Council is working with MK Council and others to promote and support positive redevelopment. 

 

Central Bletchley Urban Design Framework Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

Milton Keynes Council has begun the process of producing an Urban Design Framework as a ‘Supplementary Planning Document’ that will provide additional planning guidance for future development within the Central Bletchley Prospectus Area. Further information on the SPD can be found on the Central Bletchley SPD website.

 

Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Deal

The government announced the approval of a £22.7mn investment plan for Bletchley and Fenny Stratford from the £3.6bn Towns Fund. The Towns Fund aims to improve the economic sustainability of towns with a focus on creating jobs, supporting town centres, boosting businesses and connecting people to where they live and work. The funding will support the delivery of a number of key projects that will help to bring major improvements to the Bletchley and Fenny Stratford area. More information on the Town Deal is available on the Groundbreaking Bletchley and Fenny website.     

 

Neighbourhood Plan

There is currently one Neighbourhood Plan in the parish of Bletchley and Fenny Stratford. Following a referendum the Lakes Estate Neighbourhood Plan became part of the Development Plan for Milton Keynes in October 2015 and is used alongside the Local Plan and Core Strategy when considering development proposals within the area covered by the plan. You can find out more about the new proposed Neighbourhood Plan for the rest of our parish by going to our Neighbourhood Plan webpage.
