Update 5th November 2020
Proposed Development of Flats at Linford Wood.
There was an exploratory meeting in Milton Keynes Council (2/11/2020) regarding the potential to develop flats on the corner of the Linford Wood site at the junction of H3 Monks Way and V8 Marlborough Street.
The proposal is for reuse of an existing car park formerly associated with office accommodation. The offices have now been converted with MKC permission, in to flats.
The owner of these flats now wants to build a further development comprising 91 flats on the car park.
A firm of Austrian Architects has proposed 3 substantially tall blocks. The block parallel with the H3 at one end, this is a significantly higher tower block overlooking the grid roads. All the corners of this high rise have balconies.
The style of the development is akin to middle European Design with many small flats close together and brown quarry tiles to the face of the buildings. This is typical of European design- not as per our Parish style at all.
None of our ward councillors attended the meeting. However some Parish Councillors represented the Parish interests. Residents of the Parish have heavily invested time and effort to produce a Neighbourhood Plan to control development in our area.
In spite of making the statement that they (the architects) had followed the Neighbourhood Plan it was clear from comments made and the style of the development, this was not the case and this was robustly point out by the Councillors in the meeting. Further comments were made by residents regarding the practicality of some of the proposals. A planning application is someway off and, as always, resident will have the opportunity to make their views known to the planning authority at that time.
Rowle Close Garages
The Neighbourhood Plan addresses the Rowle garage site in SNP17. The Parish Council have met with the owner/developer who proposes demolition of the garages and construction of a small estate of two storey detached and semi-detached houses including a vastly improved parking solution which should address all the current parking issues.
The development is delayed whilst the developer negotiates ending the lease agreement with a few owners of the remaining garages. No planning application has been made.
As part of the Parish Council initiative to rid the Parish of crime, a series of mobile cameras are now being used in conjunction with the Police and MKC Housing to spot fly tippers and other criminal activity. Arrests have already been made and Rowle Close garages are one of our target areas.
Application received on 29th October.
