Future Medway Local Plan 2012 to 2035
Medway Council are working on a new Local Plan which 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.
They are consulting on a Development Strategy technical document as a key stage of work in preparing the new Local Plan. This sets out the ambitions for the plan, options for how Medway could grow and draft policies for managing development.

It will also aim to create a level playing field for all organisations and to make charities more accessible for beneficiaries, as well as to create new opportunities for funders to engage with digital, and enhance collaboration across the sector.

Closing date: 25th September
