West Bletchley Council

Development on Land adjacent to West Bletchley. Proposed new neighbourhood for Milton Keynes.

Salden Chase Update – July 2017

 

At its meeting held on 7th June 2017 Aylesbury Vale District Council approved the application granting outline planning permission for an urban extension on land adjacent to West Bletchley (Application No: 15/00314/AOP).

 

As previously reported both West Bletchley Council and Milton Keynes Council had objected to this application.

 

At its Cabinet meeting held on 13th June 2017 the Leader of MKC re-affirmed that Council’s opposition to the development at Salden Chase and advised that he had asked that the Council obtain external legal opinion on the viability of any challenge to the decision either through call-in to the Secretary of State or by Judicial Review.

 

Subsequently, at its meeting held on 19th June 2017, Newton Longville Parish Council resolved to proceed with exploring a challenge, of the decision made by Aylesbury Vale District Council, by way of Judicial Review.

 

West Bletchley Council, having considered these matters at its Full Council meeting held on 26th June 2017, resolved to work jointly with Newton Longville Parish Council in pursuing a challenge of Aylesbury Vale District Council’s decision to approve the Salden Chase Planning Application.

What is Judicial Review?

 

Judicial review is a procedure that enables individuals, businesses and other groups to challenge the lawfulness of decisions made by Ministers, Government Departments, local authorities and other public bodies.

 

The role of the court in judicial review is to decide whether the appropriate legal standard has been breached.

 

The main grounds of judicial review are: illegality, irrationality, procedurally unfairness, Convention rights and European Union law.

 

The remedies available to a court include the granting of orders. These include a Quashing order – to overturn or undo a decision already made.

SALDEN CHASE UPDATE – February 2016

 

West Bletchley Council has received correspondence from Athene Communications, acting on behalf of the South West Milton Keynes Consortium, providing a brief update about the planning application to create a new neighbourhood on the land situated between the A421, Whaddon Road and the railway line, as follows:

“The Consortium has engaged extensively with Aylesbury Vale District Council, Buckinghamshire County Council and Milton Keynes Council, to address matters raised during formal consultation on the planning application. It is working on a number of revisions to the scheme and to provide the local authorities with further technical information.

It expects to complete this work by early May and will be in touch again at that time to provide full information on the changes to the scheme.”

Please continue to check our website for further information and updates.


SALDEN CHASE UPDATE – October 2015

The following update on progress with the South West Milton Keynes planning application
has been issued by Milton Keynes Council:

 

South West Milton Keynes (SWMK)

 

Following the initial briefing given to Councillors and parishes in March there has been a period of negotiation and agreement, on a without prejudice basis, between the South West MK Consortium and the three principal authorities with statutory responsibilities in relation to the planning application (AVDC, MKC and Bucks County Council). This has included discussions on a ‘Planning Performance Agreement’ (PPA), which has now been signed, committing the relevant parties to an agreed timetable for taking the proposals to the respective planning committees for a decision.

 

Although this part of the process has taken some time technical discussions have also been under way in parallel.

 

The latest position can be summarised as follows:

It is proposed that MKC will make a decision on the planning application for the road access proposals and agree its response to the rest of the application, to submit to AVDC. AVDC will then make a decision on the application. To meet the agreed timetable in the PPA it is anticipated that MKC will make their decision in November or December, and AVDC will make its decision in December or January.

Further work has been commissioned by the applicant following representations from Highways England, West Bletchley Town Council and Bucks CC. This work is in hand and it is anticipated that this will be submitted for consideration by the highway authorities in the early autumn.

 

Technical discussions on school place planning, leisure, recreation, community and health facilities, landscape, ecology and sustainable drainage have been undertaken and will feed into a revised scheme on these matters;

 

Revisions to the proposals are anticipated to be complete in October.

 

Notes:

SWMK:

o Application reference 15/00314/AOP: Outline application to AVDC, which includes the majority of the application site. View proposals and consultation responses through AVDC Public Access site.

o Application reference 15/00223/CONS: This is the consultation that AVDC have issued to MKC on the above application. View consultation responses through MKC Public Access Site.

o Application reference 15/00619/FUL: This is the part of the proposal that MKC have registered as a planning application for MKC to make a decision on. This is for the works proposed to the existing road network and new access roads proposed into the sites (which are in the District of Milton Keynes). View consultation responses through MKC Public Access Site.

 


Planning Application for the erection of four wind turbines is REFUSED by
Aylesbury Vale District Council

LATEST UPDATE | SEPTEMBER 2015

 

In January 2014 WBC advised of the submission of the following application to
Aylesbury Vale District Council:

 

13/03455/APPErection of four wind turbines (maximum height 115 metres) with ancillary infrastructure including substation, access tracks and crane hardstanding and temporary storage compound for temporary period for 25 years at Land At Cowpasture Farm, Drayton Road, Newton Longville, Buckinghamshire, MK17 0BU.

 

West Bletchley Council considered this application at a meeting held in February 2014 and subsequently submitted an objection to the application on the grounds the proposal would have an adverse visual impact on the countryside and create a potential noise nuisance.

 

Having been ‘pending consideration’ since that time, Aylesbury Vale District Council has now confirmed that this application has been refused.

 

A copy of the planning decision, detailing the reasons for refusal, can be viewed on the planning section of Aylesbury Vale District Council’s website at:

Salden Chase Update | August 2015

Please see below an excerpt taken from an e-mail received from Milton Keynes Council’s Infrastructure Policy and Programme Manager, providing an update on the planning authority's consideration of the application for development on land adjacent to West Bletchley.
 

In summary:

·         Following receipt of consultation responses Aylesbury Vale District Council, Milton Keynes Council and Buckinghamshire County Council are working through the technical aspects of the planning application, including jointly on a number of areas.

·         To this end MKC and Bucks CC are in continuous dialogue regarding the transport aspects of the application, and we have had three ‘round table’ sessions with lead service providers to consider specifically; education provision (early years, primary and secondary); leisure, recreation and community facilities; and health facilities.

·         A fourth round table session (considering landscape, ecology and drainage) is planned for mid-September.

·         You will recall we were discussing a Planning Performance Agreement and the South West MK Consortium and AVDC are now close to agreeing sign off of this.  Although not signatories to the agreement, MKC and Bucks CC are also working to the project plan contained within it, which is aimed at getting the requisite planning decisions from MKC and AVDC at the end of 2015 and early 2016 respectively.

New Neighbourhood Proposed Update | August 2013

 

West Bletchley Council prepares to challenge planning application
 
West Bletchley Council has resolved to oppose the building of new properties on the Salden Chase site and is working to bring together an association of local parish councils to challenge any planning application for the area. It has also written to the Government’s Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government to register its concerns regarding the national planning regime which it considers is favouring the interests of developers and providing them with an advantage over the local community. West Bletchley Council has asked the Secretary of State to address this imbalance and provide us with support to challenge the Consortium’s proposals.
 
The Consortium has stated that it expects to submit a planning application for the development in September 2013. Whilst the detail of the proposals is yet to be seen West Bletchley Council has already identified several areas of potential concern associated with the proposed scale of development. These include: the impact on the already overloaded transport infrastructure, added pressures on local services including health and education and negative effects on the local environment. The Council is looking at these issues and gathering information to help it evidence the real potential impact of the detailed proposals contained in the actual planning application.  
 
How local residents can have their say:
 
The planning application for this development is due to be submitted to Aylesbury Vale District Council this September. Anyone wishing to comment on the application will then have a short period of time, usually 3 weeks to do so. Whilst we may not be notified directly that an application has been submitted we will be checking on its progress and will endeavour to share all information obtained with West Bletchley residents as quickly as possible.
 
In the meantime residents can:
 
-       Contact the Consortium at: www.southwestmiltonkeynes.co.uk to give feedback on the proposals and ask questions.
-       Advise us at: admin@westbletchleycouncil.gov.uk of any specific areas of concern that they want us to investigate on their behalf.
-       Contact their local elected representatives (contact details below) to ensure that they are aware of residents’ views on the proposed development.

The South West West Milton Keynes Consortium are proposing the creation of a new neighbourhood for Milton Keynes on land adjacent to West Bletchley.

Proposals for South West Milton Keynes

 
A special meeting of the Salden Chase Sub Committee has been arranged to take place at West Bletchley Council’s Offices at 221 Whaddon Way at 7.30pm on Wednesday 15th May 2013.
 
The purpose of this meeting will be to receive a presentation from representatives of the South West Milton Keynes Consortium on the proposals for development on land adjacent to West Bletchley.
 
We have been advised that the Consortium’s representatives will be as follows:
 
  Richard Astle, Athene Communications
  Mark Hyde, Januarys
  Steve Haines, David Lock Associates
  Daniel Shoesmith, Pell Frischmann
 
As meetings of the Sub Committee are ‘open to the public’ local residents are welcome to attend and observe the meeting.
 

 
Council re-establishes Salden Chase Sub Committee
 
West Bletchley Council has established a Council Sub Committee to work with residents and respond to the proposals for development on part of the land formerly referred to as Salden Chase and any relevant adjoining areas.
 
The Sub Committee, comprised of appointed members of West Bletchley Council and representatives of local community organisations and adjoining parishes will, as part of its brief, be charged with arranging regular meetings with the general public and ensure maximum publicity for such meetings.
 
At its first meeting, held on 19th March, the Sub Committee considered correspondence from the South West Milton Keynes Consortium advising that the proposal for development on land, within Aylesbury Vale, adjacent to West Bletchley would include:
 
-       up to 1,855 homes
-       a new employment area
-       educational facilities including a primary school and early years provision
-       areas of open space including parkland, sports and recreational facilities, play and wildlife areas and allotments
 
The Consortium had advised that they were in pre-application discussions with both Aylesbury Vale District Council and Milton Keynes Council and had submitted an Environmental Impact Assessment Scoping report to Aylesbury Vale. They propose to launch a public consultation in the spring which will provide an opportunity for local stakeholders and residents to find out more about the proposals and give them their feedback. The consultation will include briefings for key stakeholders and two public exhibitions – one in Newton Longville and one in Bletchley.
 
Whilst full details of the proposals are yet to be published the Sub Committee has already identified several areas of concern in respect of the outline concept proposal and has agreed to commission professional consultants to advise the Council on how it should respond to these concerns.
 
The Sub Committee has also agreed that it will be concentrating its efforts on ensuring that local residents are made aware of any new information published about the proposal including details of the public consultation and launch event.
 
New Plans for Development on Land Adjacent to West Bletchley 

The Concept Master Plan (shown below) relates to land that was previously a part of the Salden Chase Scheme. The proposal includes for the development of up to 1,850 homes with a Neighbourhood Centre, Primary School and Employment area.

Public consultation is expected to take place during the early 2013 details of which will be published on our website.

Submission of a planning application for the development is expected in late summer 2013.

West Bletchley Council will be considering how it can best represent the views of its local residents in responding to the consulation and subsequent planning application.
