Representation Summary:

The Objectively Assessed Need for the area was determined and used to finalise the housing numbers to be delivered through the Plan:MK period.
The infrastructure needs for the Milton Keynes area are based upon evidence gathered during the Plan:MK preparation, and do not include the needs of allocations on the boundary in adjacent areas.

These allocations would be best placed around the key settlements in the VALP area, principally Aylesbury and Buckingham.

Change suggested by respondent:

Delete from new policy D2 "D-NLV001 Salden Chase" and "D-WHA001 Shenley Park"
