Our new Local Plan will replace the 2003 Medway Local Plan. It will:
- guide the development and use of land in Medway up to 2040
- address the needs of our growing population.
Local Plan consultation
We're committed to getting a new Local Plan in place for autumn 2025 which looks at where growth should take place. Our plan will help Medway to be an even greater place to live, work, learn and visit for years to come.
We had a consultation so you could tell us what you want to see in our new Local Plan.
The consultation closed at 11.59pm on Tuesday 31 October 2023.
