Name: Planning Policy
Description: Planning Policy sets out the development strategy and vision for Dartford using the Local Development Framework and Local Plan documents

Planning Policy

The way land and buildings should be developed and used in Dartford Borough is set out in our Local Plan and other planning policy documents.  These are drafted through public consultation and technical evidence, and tested against national requirements.

Once formally 'adopted', Local Plans form the basis of decisions over local planning applications.  Other publications set out how Local Plans are developed, and detail how they are to be delivered.
