Future Medway

Local Plan 2012 - 2035

The council is working 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 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.

The council consulted on the first formal stage of the Local Plan, Issues and Options, in January and February 2016.

The council is now consulting on the next formal stage, Development Options.  The consultation opened on Monday 16 January 2017 and has been extended to 5pm on Tuesday 30 May 2017 for comments on the Habitats Regulations Assessment screening report. The council will also accept comments by this date that address the HRA report in conjunction with views on the Development Options report and other supporting documents. .  For more information, please visit the Future Medway page.
