Call for sites 2022

We’re reviewing potential sites for development in our emerging Local Plan.

An up-to-date assessment of land availability is needed as part of the plan-making process. A call for sites is an important information-gathering exercise as part of the assessment of land availability.

Our call for sites 2022 is for all land uses - not just housing. It includes:

  • employment and commercial
  • waste management
  • mineral supply
  • plots or pitches for Gypsies, Travellers and travelling show people.

All sites should be capable of delivering 5 or more dwellings or economic development on sites of 0.25 hectares (or 500 square metres of floorspace) and above. Sites for the extraction of sand and gravel (quarries) and landfilling waste are also sought.

Sites submitted through a previous call for sites and considered in earlier versions of the Medway Strategic Land Availability Assessment (SLAA) must be resubmitted. This is to ensure that information about each site is up-to-date.

Submit a site

You need to submit sites by Tuesday 31 January 2023 at 11:59pm.

The easiest way to submit your site is through the online form. Each site needs an individual submission.

The online form gathers information about individual sites, such as the proposed land uses, constraints and timescales.

You'll need to register for an account before you fill in the online form. This means you can edit your information before you submit it.

Using the online form, you can accurately plot your site boundary. Or you can upload a compatible file of the site boundary only for use in a geographic information system.

Submit a site

If you are unable to use the online form, email: planning.policy@medway.gov.uk.

What happens next

We’ll consult on options for future growth in a Regulation 18 document in 2023.

Previous calls for sites and SLAAs

The first SLAA was published in November 2010, with 7 subsequent reviews and reports. The latest was published in December 2019. These were supported by official calls for sites in 2008 to 2009 and 2014.
