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.  Please refer to the Planning Policy page for more information and updates.
