A planning application to secure the future of Bletchley Park was submitted to Milton Keynes BC today.
The parties to the application are the park's joint owners, Property Holdings and BT, and the Bletchley Park Trust.
The application proposes the reuse of the wartime buildings, formerly the government's Code and Cypher School, as a museum campus dedicated to the intelligence work undertaken on the park during the war and the development of the modern computer.
Welcoming the agreement to submit the planning application, Sir Paul Beresford, environment minister responsible for property holdings, said:
'I hope that these proposals for Bletchley Park can mark a significant step towards securing the long term future of the park. Much work remains to be done but this is a vital starting point for determining the way forward.'
