Lakes Estate regeneration planning update

We're pleased to tell you that the planning application for the Lakes Estate regeneration has been validated and is available for you to view and comment on.

This is an important milestone in the project and we strongly encourage as many people to respond to the consultation as possible.  All feedback is welcome whether it's something positive you want to share, or suggest ways we can improve the plans even further.

Please submit your comments here.  Further guidance about how to respond can be viewed on the Council's planning portal.

Once the consultation has ended, the Planning team at MKC will collate the feedback and then present a report to councillors on the Development Control Committee.  The Committee will determine the application at a public meeting.

We'll update you once we have a confirmed date, but please do get in touch if you have any questions in the meantime.

Tpas has launched a campaign called #whatmatterstome to help develop the first Serpentine Court Residents’ Charter.

A Resident Charter is a legally binding agreement between a council and the residents who live in a regeneration area. At this point we are gathering residents views on the kind of guarantees they want from Milton Keynes Council should the plans to regenerate Serpentine Court go ahead.  

During November, we will be asking the residents of Serpentine Court what they care about when it comes to regeneration.

The campaign is supported by the Serpentine Court Steering Group.

A group of resident leaseholders have been meeting separately to work on the homeowners section of the charter. They usually meet on Thursdays at 1.00pm at Spotlight, and all resident leaseholders are welcome.

For our first consultation event, the SCSG has organised a Spooky Night for children on Friday 2 November 4.00 – 7.00pm at The Warren. There’ll be Halloween food and fun for the kids, while we ask the adults to think about #whatmatterstome

Watch out for news of further events on this page.
