The Parish has one Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG) and one Specific Issue Action Group (SIAG) between them covering the seven grid squares of the Parish.
The Parish Council does not have any statutory powers in the planning process but has the opportunity to comment to Milton Keynes Council Development Control as appropriate on planning applications within the Parish. On a monthly basis a nominated member of the Planning Committee undertakes to review the planning applications which have been notified to the Parish Council by Milton Keynes Development Control.
The procedure which is followed is detailed in our Planning Process Document. It is worth noting that the Milton Keynes website is accessible to anyone to check the details of a particular planning application.
