Future Medway

Chatham Interface Land Development Brief

The Chatham Interface Land Development Brief 2017 has been drafted to update the Interface Land Development Framework Supplementary Planning Document adopted in October 2010, in order to reflect the changing economic and planning circumstances and enable the development of this key regeneration site to be brought forward. The Development Brief identifies the potential for a residential-led development with opportunities for supporting commercial uses (office, café/restaurant).  Once adopted the Development Brief will be a planning guidance document, which will be a material planning consideration against which decisions can be made in relation to development proposals on the sites.

Medway Council sought comments between 10 November and 5pm on 22 December 2017 on the content of the Chatham Interface Land Development Brief 2017 and the approach taken in shaping and managing development on the Interface Land sites.  For more information please visit the Chatham Interface Land Development Brief page.

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 and on the second formal stage, the Development Options document between 16 January and 30 May 2017.
