Planning application process

On a monthly basis, a nominated member of the Planning Committee undertakes to review the planning applications which have been notified to the Parish Council by Milton Keynes Development Control.

The Parish Council does not have any statutory powers in the planning process but has the opportunity to comment to Milton Keynes Council Development Control as appropriate on planning applications within the Parish.

The procedure which is followed is detailed in our Planning Process Document. The Milton Keynes planning pages are accessible for anyone to check the details of a particular planning application.

Just go to and follow the links.

Tattenhoe Park

Tattenhoe Park is still in the process of being constructed, becoming an increasingly vibrant and diverse community within the parish.

As with many grid squares in Milton Keynes, aspects of the estate’s infrastructure will be delivered piece by piece, including play areas, allotments and a local centre.  Each section of Tattenhoe Park is subject to applications and amendments by different construction companies in collaboration with Milton Keynes City Council.

It is likely that portions of the developed area will eventually fall under the responsibility of the Parish Council, but the timeline for this has yet to be determined.  The Parish Council has a voice in the consultation process for the applications for each phase of the development, but ultimately we cannot dictate or block any element of the construction on land which is not under our control.

Click here for the Tattenhoe Park masterplan, approved by Milton Keynes Council in 2017. This plan has undergone some amendments in the years since it was originally approved, but it is a reasonable overview of the planned development.

Below are links to specific stages of construction across Tattenhoe Park:

Phase 1 [Site 1] – Off Hayton Way

Phase 2 – Off Bronte Avenue and Priestley Drive

Phase 3 – Off Priestley Drive

Phase 4 – Off Priestley Drive and Twain Way

Phase 4A – Off Twain Way

Phase 5 – Off Bronte Avenue

Phase 6 [not yet proposed]

Phase 7 – Off Twain Way

Proposed play areas at Priory Park Pavilion
