The Vale of White Horse District Council is consulting on a proposal for a Local Development Order (LDO) for Milton Park which is part of the Science Vale UK Enterprise Zone. The proposed Milton Park Local Development Order aims to streamline the planning process for a period of 15 years. As a result, certain developments will be able to take place without the need to seek planning permission.
The Enterprise Zone status also means that new businesses will benefit from over £1bn of business rate discounts over five years and access to super-fast broadband.
The consultation lasts until Tuesday 20 November 2012. More information and a link to the consultation documents is available here: http://www.sciencevale.com/news/milton-park-ldo-consultation/.
