  • After two years work, Newport Pagnell Town Council has reached the stage of holding the Pre-Submission Public Consultation on their Neighbourhood Plan from 1 June to 12 July 2015. The Plan and about 40 supporting documents can be viewed on the NPTC website.
  • Public comments can be submitted via Survey Monkey or by email. Note: the Plans may affect you if you use the facilites in Newport Pagnell, as well as affecting Sherington itself. The documents are indicative of those that Sherington will need to prepare over the coming year or so.

Public Consultation - Area Designation

  Update 24 May: Milton Keynes Council received no comments on the Area, which was therefore approved at the Delegated Decisions Meeting on 21 April. This decision has now been confirmed.
  • The first of the formal Public Consultations on Sherington's Neighbourhood Plan is running from 9 March to 20 April 2015. This is not on whether or not there should be a Plan, nor on the Plan itself, but on the choice of the entire Parish as the area to be covered by the Plan. Comments should be submitted to Milton Keynes Council who are running this Public Consultation. Full details are available on the MKC web site.

Planning Application 14/02002/OUT

The application was refused by 5 votes to 1. The MKC Officer recommendation was also to refuse permission.
