There are currently traffic issues at the Premier Academy, Saffron Street Bletchley which residents feel are out of control and will only be exacerbated if the school intake numbers increase. Please could the Cabinet member for Children and School Improvement, together with the Cabinet member for Public Realm and Planning please look again at the impact of the school size against pupil intake and reassure residents with regard to the growing impact of more traffic and parking on local residents”.

Councillor P Williams has submitted the following question and has requested a written response from the Cabinet member for Public Realm:

Development Control Committee 3 September 2015 -

I have had concerns raised to me following the Development Control Committee of 3rd September 2015 in relation to application 15/01074/OUT.

Concerns include:

(a)     An assertion made in Committee that a development eastwards (over classic CMK infrastructure) would not be possible owing to Policy G1, despite the closure of streets being justified in certain circumstances under policy G8.

(b)     An interpretation of Policy G3 which favours the developers, while ignoring the stated aims of the authors of the Neighbourhood Plan.

(c)     Concerns that this decision sets a precedent for future development in Central Milton Keynes (CMK)

(d)     Concerns that the decision may deter other Parishes from taking part in the Neighbourhood Planning process.

Councillor P Williams has asked that these concerns be raised with the Director for Planning, with responses to each of these concerns.”
