We began building Willow Lake in 2008 and the final phase of homes is expected to be completed in 2024. Once finished, the development will feature approximately 1,650 new homes alongside the forthcoming facilities.
Our proposals for the new facilities currently include a multi-use community building which would comprise a large main hall about the size of a badminton court (approximately 160sq m), a further good-sized hall, a community hub for smaller informal meetings, two separate meeting rooms, a kitchen, an office and reception area, as well as a car park with lighting.
There would also be three sports pitches and a total of six changing rooms – four for teams and two for officials – including showers and toilets.
In order to allow local residents and key stakeholders the opportunity to find out more about our proposals, we held a public exhibition at the Newton Leys Community Centre on Thursday 17th November 2016 between 3.15pm and 7pm.
Visitors were able to view our plans, speak to experts from our project team, ask questions and provide us with their feedback on the proposals. If you would like to view the exhibition boards displayed at the consultation event, please click here.
Our public consultation period closed on Thursday 1st December 2016. The comments we received from local residents will help us to refine our emerging plans before we finalise and submit a planning application to Milton Keynes Council in the near future.
