Planning Policy

What we do

The Planning Policy team plans for the future by looking at the allocation of land for development and environment protection. The team also creates policies which are used to help determine planning applications.

Our current programme is set out in a Local Development Scheme.

We also have a statement that sets out our approach to consultations on our various policy documents.

Our 2015-16 Annual Monitoring Report tells you how we are doing in preparing our documents and how effective our planning policies are. Previous documents are available on request.

Data on our housing and commercial land supply is available in information audits prepared together with Kent County Council.

The Council’s latest housing land supply statement for 2016/17 is now available.  A December 2017 partial update is also available here.

The Council has responded to the Government consultation on future housing numbers in England and Wales 'Planning for the right homes in the right place' with a detailed response and covering letter.
