News | 2016 - Plan MK
|The Rotary Club of Milton Keynes||
Our speaker at our lunch meeting on 11th July 2016 was Anna Rose who is the Service Director of Planning and Transport at the Milton Keynes Council.
She gave a fascinating talk on what's required to plan for the future development of Milton Keynes which has to be in harmony with it's neighbours and at the same time accounting for the desires of the housing developers and also meeting the needs of the Health Services, which are of course, outside the control of MK Council.
Alongside work on Plan:MK, the Council is also exploring the future of Milton Keynes in a wider context, as a UK city and economy of increasing importance. The MK Futures 2050 Commission process is running alongside Plan:MK, with the two activities interlinking and sharing information.
The Commission will be considering the draft Plan:MK Vision and Development Options in this consultation document, and will think about how these will relate to the economic future of the city.
Timetables for these two processes have been set up to take full advantage of the links between them. You can find out more about the MK Futures 2050 work on.
Ex Mayor Councillor Derek Eastman introduced Anna to the Club and the lunch meeting was extended to allow a number of questions being addressed to her from the floor.
