Consultation description

Following a request by Milton Keynes Council to take greater strategic control of growth and delivery in their area, they asked to acquire full control of planning functions. Currently the Homes and Community Agency is responsible for considering certain types of planning applications for specific areas of Milton Keynes (mainly the areas designated as ‘expansion areas’).

While there are many strands to this transfer package, this document seeks views on the transfer of those planning functions back to Milton Keynes Council only.
