National Planning Summit

Jon Palmer

Head of Planning
Milton Keynes Council

I have been fortunate to work for Milton Keynes Council and support the authority’s plans for growth, as part of the Oxford to Cambridge Arc, since February 2019. This includes taking forward an ambitious review of the recently adopted Local Plan. Prior to this I was with East Riding of Yorkshire Council for eight years which, as Planning Policy Manager, included adopting the Council’s award winning Local Plan. My career started with a planning consultancy in York and has also included time working for a North Yorkshire District Council and as a senior strategic planner with a Regional Development Agency.
