Representation Summary:

Object to the proposed allocation of Shenley Park to meet needs in the north east of the district.
Object to the site selection process - see reps on MM007
Land West of Newton Leys should be allocated for c.400 dwellings (the HELAA fails to take account of new evidence for West Newton Leys yet assessments for other sites have been updated).

Change suggested by respondent:

Pegasus seek a change to the proposed modification so that an additional site is included - land west of Newton Leys, Milton Keynes for approximately 400 dwellings.

Policy D2 Delivery site allocations in the rest of the district - should be amended to include land west of Newton Leys (this can be in addition to the other sites such as part of Shenley Park or part of Eaton Leys in recognition of the need to provide a range and choice of sites to ensure delivery in the plan period and acknowledging that there are already delays to the Salden Chase strategic allocation following the refusal to grant permission for highway access by Milton Keynes Council).

As a consequence other sites do not have to deliver as many dwellings in the plan period.

This representation addresses MM075- new site policy for Shenley Park.
Pegasus object to the proposed allocation of Shenley Park.
Whilst supporting the strategy of concentrating the additional development required in the AVLP around the southern and south western edges of Milton Keynes, an objection is made to the reliance on one site of approximately 1,150 dwellings.
