The Parish Council object to the proposal for the following reasons:
* Lack of consultation with areas of MK that will be affected. It is stated that a briefing was held for parish and town councils in July 2019. This parish council has no record of such an invitation
* Conclusions from the Landscape and Visual Capacity Comparison Assessment from June 19 suggests an alternative site (Newton Leys) has the capacity to accommodate 1,000 dwellings but this has not been reflected in the updated Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment. This raises a question over the viability of the comparisons between the 3 MK edge sites (Eaton Leys, Shenley Park & extension to Salden Chase allocation)
* The development will have a negative impact on residents in Oxley Park and Kingsmead with the potential for at least 1150 properties being built on their doorstep
* No details have been provided to show how the Shenley Park site was chosen as the more viable option, what evidence base has informed the decision or what weighting has been given to the matters under consideration
* Highways costs from BCC have not been included and it is significantly concerning to note that there is no reference to any infrastructure costs within Milton Keynes being taken into consideration or information sourced
* Highway modelling does not satisfactorily represent the impact of the development on traffic flow into and around MK. The traffic will impact unacceptably on the existing highways infrastructure and increase pollution around the area
* Proposals for a link road should ensure that this is a grid road as per Policy SD15 of Plan:MK. The proposals should also ensure that a 'Redway' is developed providing a link for cyclists and pedestrians to the existing Redway network within MK
* Schools in MK within the vicinity of the development do not have capacity to accommodate out of area children. Pupil demand form the development should be accommodated by onsite provision, or by provision elsewhere within Bucks
* The development will fall into Aylesbury Vale CCG which has no healthcare provision in the area. It is essential that specific healthcare provision is provided for residents and that no additional demand be placed on the over stretched facilities within MK
* The naming of the development is also cause for concern. The 'Shenleys' are part of MK and to name a new development in this way will only add to confusion. It should be noted that within Shenley Church End there is already an area named Shenley Park
