Local Plan for Swale

Our development plan

The Local Plan, or development plan, comprises one or more documents prepared in accordance with legal requirements, independently examined and adopted by the Council. It is also used by the Council to help determine planning applications. The Plan is required to be kept up-to-date.

The adopted Local Plan (Bearing Fruits 2031)

Our Local Plan was adopted on 26 July 2017. Pending completion of a final (proof-read) document and set of Proposals Maps, the document should be viewed as follows:

It is important that both are read together. For example, Chapter 9 of the Local Plan itself contains Proposals Map changes that affect the submission plan Proposals Map.

Our Local Plan Submission and Examination in Public page, together with our Examination document library page give further details and links to all supporting documents associated with the preparation of the adopted Local Plan. A copy of the inspector report can also be viewed here.

You can also view the Sustainability Appraisal Adoption Statement and the Local Plan Adoption Statement.

Printed copies of the adopted Local Plan (Bearing Fruits 2031) will be available to purchase towards the end of 2017. Please email if you wish to be notified of when the document will be available.
