Planning for growth on the Hoo Peninsula consultation

In late 2019, we secured £170 million of funding to deliver strategic transport and environmental projects on the Hoo Peninsula through the Housing Infrastructure Fund.

This enables further development in this area that could help to meet Medway’s growth needs over the next 20 years. This potential growth could also be an important part of our development strategy for the new Medway Local Plan.

Our Planning and Regeneration teams are working on a development framework to guide how growth could come forward. This proposes a rural town based around Hoo St Werburgh and potential expansion of other villages.

The work seeks to set a vision and key principles for managing change. The document will help as evidence for the Local Plan.

Consultation

The consultation period is now open and we would like to hear your views on proposals. Information about the consultation will allow you to provide feedback and share your thoughts on the new infrastructure plans.

We will review the feedback before we finalise the proposals and submit applications for planning permission. This includes any other permissions for the infrastructure proposals.
