Historic England request judicial review on Works planning consent

Jul 1, 2018

Historic England, who look after England’s Historic Environment, have given notice to Milton Keynes Council that they will be seeking a Judicial Review on the Council’s decision to grant St Modwen planning permission to redevelop the Wolverton Works site. If the Council refuse to quash the decision, Historic England will make a formal application to the High Court for leave to present their case which is that the demolition of the Works buildings, located within the Wolverton Conservation Area, undermines national and local planning policy which is designed to protect the historic environment.
