What is the Local Plan?


The local plan has been adopted and is now available for download.

Local plans must be consistent with national policy but can also take on board local planning issues that are important to Maidstone.

The Maidstone Borough Local Plan provides a framework for development until 2031. It plans for homes, jobs, shopping, leisure and the environment, and provides infrastructure to support these.

The policies within the plan will be used to make decisions on planning applications. The countryside is an important part of Maidstone, and the best way to protect it is to allocate specific sites for development. This way we will have the power to fight developments that are not suitable for our communities.
