Consultation on Draft Minerals Local Plan
Public Drop-In Session
Tuesday 2nd September 6.15pm
Sherington Village Hall

  • Milton Keynes Council is consulting on the next stage of the preparation of a new Minerals Local Plan for the Borough. The consultation on the Draft Plan is the first opportunity for people to see an emerging plan and how everything fits together, and to object if the approaches in the plan are considered to be incorrect or if they could be improved. Matters are still open for consideration and it is not too late to challenge the plan where consultees have convincing arguments.
  • The Draft Plan and supporting documents can be viewed through the Council's website at
  • As part of the Draft Plan, a series of sites that the Council consider may be suitable for mineral extraction are identified, and it is proposed that these are allocated in the Final Plan.

  • The potential sites identified near Sherington and Lathbury may be of particular interest to the residents of Sherington (you can see the proposed sites in Appendix 1 of the main consultation document at,
    so to give you the opportunity to discuss the issues with Council Officers, there will be a public drop-in session from 6.15pm ahead of the Parish Council meeting on Tuesday 2nd September, at the Village Hall in Sherington.
