Planning permission refused for new housing to be built on former Travis Perkins site in Milton Keynes

    Planning permission for the demolition of a building supplies warehouse to make way for new housing in Bletchley has been refused.

    Milton Keynes City Council has refused planning permission for the demolition of a building supplies warehouse in Milton Keynes.

    If accepted, the site would have been used for the construction of 103 new residential units with parking.

    The address, on Simpson Road, was a former Travis Perkins site which has been vacant since 2019.

    Plans included 71 market flats, 32 affordable houses and 150 parking spaces

    Milton Keynes City Council gave several reasons for the 'refusal including potential harm caused to nearby designated heritage assets', 'loss of existing trees and landscaping' and the 'lack of space to provide meaningful replacement soft landscaping and an absence of recommended additional assessments on the impact on biodiversity'.

    The City Council also states that the plans includes an 'unacceptable level of overlooking and loss of privacy to occupiers of an existing dwelling'.
