Loose Neighbourhood Plan
Work on the Loose Neighbourhood Plan continues at a steady pace, primarily the Consultation Statement i.e. the record of all the public engagement events held over the preparation period of the plan. This also includes a log of the comments (826 in all) received on the draft plan via the questionnaire, and the parish council’s response to these. This statement is virtually completed. Arising from the work the Neighbourhood Plan itself requires modifications. This task is underway.
Finally, before the draft is passed to the Borough we have to prepare a Basic Conditions Statement. This will show which sections of the Borough’s Local Plan the Loose plan accords with. Now that Maidstone Borough Council’s Local Plan is not going to be “called in” it can be unified as one document, thus making our work more straightforward.
