EMBERTON NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN 
 
Following a 4 week consultation period between 22 June and 20 July 2016, Milton Keynes Council has designated the Emberton Neighbourhood Area on 21 July 2016. 
 
NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN PUBLIC CONSULTATION 
Emberton Neighbourhood Plan – WHY? 
 
UK Government Housing Policy – UK Government recognises that the housing market is broken with many young people and families no longer able to get on the housing ladder 
Therefore, construction of new housing needs to be accelerated and expanded. Milton Keynes is identified as an area for expansion with a requirement for an additional 86,000 houses over the next 30 years (2700 new homes per year). 
 
Milton Keynes Council Implementation – MKC is seeking to meet this target through its 2050 regeneration strategy which includes development in the Rural North East Area. 
 
Emberton Housing needs Assessment - The housing needs assessment conducted in 2019 has identified an Emberton need for an additional 41 house by 2030. 
 
How to ensure Emberton has Low Cost Housing for young Families - Currently Emberton has no requirement for Affordable/low cost housing which means the village has difficulty in attracting young families to live here and has impacted facilities like the School and Playing field use. 
 
Neighbourhood Plan – The democratic implementation of a neighbourhood plan by the residents of Emberton parish provides a method to ensure that new developments meet the wishes of the village and addresses wider issues like affordable housing. Without a village plan it will be very difficult for residents and the parish council to resist future developments as MKC move to meet their housing targets. 
 
Residents will be receiving a copy of the plan and a questionnaire week ending 15th March. 
A number of drop in sessions are being held in the pavilion, the dates for these are: 
 
Friday 27th March 7pm - 9pm 
Saturday 28th March 10am - 12pm
