Local Plan Monitoring
The council is continually monitoring the policies and proposals
in the Local Plan and produces regular reports covering the take up
of housing, retail and employment land. These reports can be
found on the Authority Monitoring Report page.
New Local Plan
The council has started work on a new Local Plan.
This will replace the 2003 Medway Local Plan. This will be a single
document, containing strategic level and development management
policies, land allocations, minerals and waste, and a policies map.
The process of producing a new plan is anticipated to take around
three years. The plan will cover the period up to 2035, providing
for the number of homes and jobs, and supporting infrastructure,
such as transport, health facilities, schools, parks that the area
and its growing population needs over this time.
