Development options

Medway has carried out a second formal consultation stage in the preparation of a new Local Plan for Medway - 'Development Options' - which builds on the work carried out in the first stage (Issues and Options). 

The Development Options consultation document was presented to Medway Council's Cabinet on 20 December 2016. It provides a draft vision for Medway in 2035, setting out emerging approaches to policies to address the key issues facing Medway's communities, economy and environment. To consider options for how development land could be allocated across Medway, it also sets out a range of scenarios that could provide the basis for Medway's development up to 2035.  The council consulted on the Development Options document between 16 January and 30 May 2017. All written responses received are presented under 'Consultation responses' below.
