DRAFT HOUSING ALLOCATION POLICY - It is a legal requirement for local authorities to have a housing allocation policy that sets out who is eligible to apply for social housing. A new draft housing allocation policy has been developed to ensure the allocation of social housing in Milton Keynes is made to those in greatest need and to give applicants a clearer and more realistic view of their chances of being allocated social housing. The new policy supports the creation of a housing register and the implementation of Choice Based Lettings. Period 14/01/2019 - 08/04/2019click here!
STATEMENT OF COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT - The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how Milton Keynes Council (MKC) will engage with local communities and stakeholders in the development of planning policy documents and in the determination of planning applications within the Borough.
The requirement to prepare a SCI was introduced in the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, and MKC adopted its first in December 2006 and this was revised in March 2014. Period 14/01/2019 - 08/03/2019click here!

CONSULTATION FOR BALLOON AND SKY LANTERN RELEASES ON MK COUNCIL LAND- MK Council would like to hear your views and opinions on whether we should adopt a policy for the release of balloons and sky lanterns from Council owned land.
