A company called Willis Dawson, that has been involved in developments in both Milton Keynes and Leighton Buzzard, is promoting a site on the edge of Newton Longville, next to Newton Leys for development of 1,100 dwellings.
A summary of questions and answers will be included in the December/January issue of the Village Pump.
We have already asked Willis Dawson for more details and they have told us they “do not have any plans at this stage to submit a planning application”. They have undertaken some technical work to inform their current proposals, but “have not commenced or commissioned the detailed technical work required, which will include a detailed transport assessment”.
Willis Dawson propose a “link road” between the A421 and A4146, but at present it is unclear how this would be funded. Milton Keynes Council have estimated the cost of such a road would be £50m, but currently no-one is willing to fund this. It would also be dependent on the Salden Chase proposal going forward which is far from certain. Willis Dawson have said they believe such a road “is fundamental to the long term protection of Newton Longville and also in helping rejuvenate Bletchley”
Steve Heath has been working hard on the traffic implications of the proposals to present at the meeting.
Some more information about the proposal is on a website www.NewtonLeysWest.com created by the land promoters.
