Planning Application 17/00165/OUT - Proposed 95 houses on Olney Road 
 
This application has been refused 
 
The reason(s) for refusing the application are: 
 
(1) Saved Policy S10 of the Milton Keynes Local Plan 2001-2011 (Adopted 2005) states that planning permission will only be granted for development in the open countryside where it is essential for agriculture, forestry, countryside recreation and other development which is wholly appropriate to a rural area and cannot be located within a settlement. In addition, Policies CS1 and CS9 of the Milton Keynes Core Strategy (Adopted 2013) seek to focus development in the rural area within the development boundaries of the main and most sustainable towns or key settlements. The application site lies outside the settlement boundary of Lavendon, and falls within land designated as 'Open Countryside' and an Area of Attractive Landscape. Furthermore, given the location of the development it is considered that the proposal would represent an intrusive form of development in the open countryside, having an urbanising effect and detracting from the open, rural character of the locality and wider surrounding countryside, contrary to the environmental aims and objectives of the NPPF. It is not considered that the benefits arising from the development would outweigh the harm that would be caused. The proposal is therefore contrary to Saved Policies S10 and S11 of the Milton Keynes Local Plan 2001-2011 (Adopted 2005), Policies CS1 and CS9 of the Milton Keynes Core Strategy (Adopted 2013) and the core planning principles in Paragraph 17 of the National Planning Policy Framework (2012) which recognise the intrinsic character and beauty of the countryside. 
 
(2) In the absence of necessary planning obligations being secured by a s106 agreement, the applicant has failed to demonstrate that the proposed development would not lead to a burden on or have an adverse impact on existing local social and sustainable infrastructure, education and leisure facilities. The proposal is therefore contrary to the guidance within Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) for Affordable Housing SPD (2013), Education Facilities SPG (2004), Leisure Recreation and Sports Facilities SPG (2005), Social Infrastructure SPD (2005), and Sustainable Construction SPD (2007) which support the Milton Keynes Core Strategy Policy CS21, Policy P04 of the Milton Keynes Local Plan 2005, and the aims of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). 
 
 
Working with the applicant 
 
In accordance with paragraphs 186 and 187 of the National Planning Policy Framework Milton Keynes Council takes a positive and proactive approach to development proposals focused on solutions. Milton Keynes Council works with applicants/agents in a positive and proactive manner by: offering a pre-application advice service; as appropriate updating applicants/agents of any issues that may arise in the processing of their application; where possible suggesting solutions to secure a successful outcome; informing applicants/agents of any likely recommendation of refusal prior to a decision; and by adhering to the requirements of the Milton Keynes Council Corporate Plan and the Planning and Transport Service Plan. 
 
In this instance, whilst the application has been refused, the case officer has worked with the agent to overcome other issues to an agreed extension of time.
