19/12/2017 - Another opportunistic application in Little Brickhill

Another opportunistic application that was not part of either the existing Core Strategy or pre submission Plan MK. This is outside our normal area so we may not be responding but you should
"A new application has now been submitted to MKC for up to 500 new homes on the farmland behind Hunters Farm Shop near the A5/A4146 roundabout, known as Lavente Gate. Full details can be accessed via the public access planning portal using Application Reference 17/03233/OUT.
There are a number of reasons why we should have concerns about this proposal, not least of which is the additional congestion on the A4146 and A5 which will inevitably lead to an increase in the area. The deadline for objections is 5th January 2018 and although we're sure you have much more interesting and pressing things to do over the next couple of weeks - we certainly hope so! - please can we ask you to take the time to look at this proposal and send your comments through to MKC?
This land is classified as open countryside. It is not included in existing planning documents (the Core Strategy) nor is it in the emerging Plan:MK as land for development.
MKC is apparently confident it has a five-year land supply, but even if this is proven not to be the case the council is about to publish its final version of the Site Allocation Plan which identifies 21 sites across MK that can be called upon to meet any shortfall. Lavente Gate is not one of those sites.
Please send your comments to MKC either via the planning portal, email or by letter by the deadline 5th January".
