A couple of important updates on Local Plans which you may be interested in.

Milton Keynes Call for Sites Announced

Milton Keynes Council has announced a call for sites exercise commencing on 23rd February 2022 until 5pm on 20th April 2022. This is the first stage in reviewing their Local Plan (Plan:MK) and will form part of a Land Availability Assessment which is also being consulted on until 20th April 2022.

The Land Availability Assessment will provide the Council with an understanding of land that is available within the area for different types of development during the new Local Plan period of 2022 to 2050.

If you have land which you consider may have future development potential and would like us to submit a representation on your behalf, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Central Bedfordshire Local Development Scheme Published

Central Bedfordshire adopted its Local Plan on 22nd July 2021 and this included a requirement to undertake a partial review of the Plan within six months of adoption.

The Council has now published its new Local Development Scheme which outlines its proposed timeline for the partial review of the Local Plan 2021 and the preparation of the Local Plan Update.

The Local Plan review commenced at the beginning of 2022 and will be complete by August/September 2022.

The Local Plan Update is proposed to begin in August/September 2022 with a Regulation 18 (evidence gathering) consultation to take place September to November 2024. It is anticipated that the Plan will be submitted for examination in November 2025.
