Sustainability Appraisal - Supplementary Report: Non-Technical Summary [EXAM 115A]

Representation ID: 14369

Received: 24/07/2020

Respondent: Mr Graham Turner

Representation:

The Plan involves delivering 25% of the overall need for development from Marston Vale on the grounds that it is located along a strategic route despite the decision to abandon the East West Expressway and ignoring sites on the A6 – M1 – A5 strategic route which has planning permission and is committed to delivery. It also involves the permanent loss of AoNB, green belt and community forest land whilst ignoring opportunities to develop options for expanding existing towns in Area D with access to existing facilities.

P06
Too much dependence on the Marston Valley site and other opportunities for growth in more sustainable locations have been ignored.

Change suggested by respondent:

NLP 190 in particular has capacity for 13,000 houses and is west of Cranfield and would be ideally placed to take advantage of the Government’s investment of £95m to build a new road bridge over the M1 and a mass public transport hub to access Milton Keynes as part of the now committed development of East Milton Keynes on this side of the M1.
