Get Involved with the Neighbourhood Plan

Although the Town Council has begun started the process of developing the new plan the Neighbourhood Plan belongs to the neighbourhood area. The plan must be made by the community itself – with the support of the Town Council and Milton Keynes Council, as well as any planning consultants and other experts the group decides to use.

The group will be composed of local people and businesses to steer the preparation of the plan and to seek the views of local people. We are looking for volunteers to join the Steering Group which will oversee production of the plan.  We are also looking for local people who want to be involved in the community consultations or those who can bring specific expertise or knowledge of minority and under-represented groups.

For more information on joining the group or getting involved in devising the plan, please get in contact by emailing info@bfsnp.org.uk or calling 01908 649 469.

If you would just like to be kept informed about the Neighbourhood Plan, please sign up to our Neighbourhood Plan e-newsletter below.
