18/02/2013 - Updated Main modification consultation to MK Core Strategy

Following the examination in July, the Inspector provided the modifications she required to make the Core Strategy Sound and Legal. These the council have incorporated, and are now consulting prior to final approval and adoption.

However we have now learned that the SE Plan, which at the time of the examination was still in place, will be revoked except for two policies, neither of which pertain to MK. This we understand will be laid before parliament next week, and will come into force 21 days later.

That means that the modifications made to comply with the SE plan should be opposed as by the time the Core Strategy is adopted, the SE PLan will be revoked.

The Society remains unhappy that the Inspector has stated that unless additional land west of Newport Road is included with the previously identified strategic reserve areas the Core Strategy is not Sound for reasons of sustainability. We have considered this and are of the view that the Inspector is in error under inspectorate guidelines.
