Development plan saved policies

Under the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, all Structure and Local Plan policies were saved for three years from the date the act, or the plan, was adopted.

Medway’s Local Plan policies were due to expire in September 2007. As there were no appropriate Local Development Documents adopted to replace the Local Plan, we applied to the Secretary of State to save those policies which remained in conformity with national and regional planning policies.

Letters to both Kent County Council (KCC) and Medway have been included. For the waste and minerals local plans, Government Offices South East (GOSE) sent schedules covering any Medway site-specific policies to Medway Council.

The schedules covering generic or non Medway site specific policies went to KCC.
