New Bucks development plan includes major road built on green space in Milton Keynes

    Crest Nicholson has announced its plans for Shenley Park, which is allocated for development in the adopted Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan.

    The plans for Shenley Park, adjacent to Kingsmead and Tattenhoe Park, includes over 1,200 homes alongside a new mixed-use local centre, a primary school, care and sports facilities, and green and blue infrastructure is included within the proposals.

    The development will be the second of those on Buckinghamshire Council’s boundaries to use Milton Keynes' infrastructure, following Salden Chase, and will see the primary points of access to the new neighbourhood via the busy A421 and H6 Childs Way.

    Plans include a new link road through the development from the H6 Childs Way, which will see Kingsmead Green turned into part of the city's grid system.

    Local councillors have previously fought the plans for a road to be built on the green space, saying it is through the 'heartland of a community area that is used by many of the residents close by and beyond'.

    Over 1,265 homes would be delivered by 2033 according to the plans, with a minimum of 25% affordable housing.

    Currently, there are no known plans for an additional doctors surgery.

    Crest Nicholson say there will be an extension to Tattenhoe Valley Park which will see new play areas added to the route which extends down to Furzton Lake.

    Current Crest Nicholson sites include Tattenhoe, Campbell Wharf, Oakgrove, Whitehouse Park and Kings Meadow.

    Crest Nicholson say they will be holding drop-in consultation events on 20th and 24th May, where residents can view the proposals, discuss the plans with the team and share feedback.

    Drop-in events will be held on:
    • Saturday 20 May, 11am-3pm - Emerson Valley
    Community Centre, Roeburn Cres, Emerson Valley, Milton Keynes MK4 2DG
    • Wednesday 24 May, 4-8pm - Jubilee Hall, Stock Lane, Whaddon, Buckinghamshire MK17 OLS

    You can visit the website to view the proposals and share views online if not in person.
