Notice from the Parish Council

On August 2nd the Parish Council invited Mactaggart and Mickel Homes Ltd, the developers for the 62 dwelling in the High Street, to Milton to give a presentation of their proposed scheme. Their team of 5 included Andrew Mickel, one of the directors, Ben Flippance from the architects and Donna Mackenzie from their civil engineers. The Village was well presented with over 100 residents. After a short presentation including many slides of their intended solutions (click here to see the presentation), the evening then turned to a question and answers session. It was obvious that there were many wide ranging and well articulated concerns from the Village about several aspects of their presentation. Some concerns were outside their remit of responsibility but we hope that all others were acknowledged and will be incorporated in their presentation to WODC for detailed planning consent.

To reinforce the concerns from the evening the PC has responded to Mactaggart and Mickel’s presentation with an email outlining them and also other aspects omitted from their presentation (click here to see the email).

Mactaggart and Mickel have promised an on-going dialogue with the Village about any aspect of the development. If you have any further concerns or questions you would like to raise then please contact the PC by either emailing me directly ( or by contacting our Clerk ( and we will forward them on. More information will be up loaded when known on the PC website.

Chris Trotman, Chairman.
