Dover District Council is to consult with residents, community groups, local businesses and key stakeholders early in the New Year on the first draft of its new Local Plan. The contents of the Local Plan and the consultation approach were agreed by Cabinet today (7 December 2020). The eight-week public consultation will start on 20 January 2021.
Cllr Nick Kenton, cabinet member for planning, said: “The Local Plan sits at the heart of the planning system and provides the framework against which all planning decisions are considered.
“It’s important that local people and business have their say on the vision, the issues the plan seeks to address, and the strategy for meeting growth and development in the district over the next 20 years.
“Our vision is for sustainable living in the district, so we also want to hear your views on our draft policies to address climate change, and for protecting and enhancing the natural, built and historic environment of the district.” For more information, see our latest press release.
