Representation Summary:

Too large a settlement to cope with the increased violence / gang culture/ already existing and getting worse. Large buffer to stop expansion towards Aylesbury vale villages of Whaddon and Nash.

Change suggested by respondent:

Address issues of Policing, transport, medical, schools, land to be used as buffer.

Full text:

Firstly, I would like evidence that brown and not green field sites have been fully explored. Secondly the two knife possibly drug related crimes in Milton Keynes need to be addressed as there are serious problems with "gang" culture now in this city know in each zone by their zones name and to expand to add another zone without addressing this issue or providing adequate evidence of policing policy, adequate school back up and social back up is irresponsible.
Thirdly, to expand towards Aylesbury Vale to the extent that is proposed on green field sites is seriously worrying. Roads are barely able to support the amount of traffic at peak times already and the rural bus service is almost non existent.

If this plan is to work then the green spaces must be a sufficient buffer from the rural Villages of Whaddon and Nash and it must carry the infrastructure to cope with the violence escalating in MK at present. It cannot and must not become a feared city or it will loose inhabitants who deserve to live in a peaceful community with roads, schools, medical facilities, sports facilities and transport.

If Milton Keynes expands to Aylesbury Vale it will swallow up a beautiful and valued farming / countryside community to become an urban mess we need to know when enough is enough.
