New Local Plan
Revised Local Plan
We are undertaking the first statutory review of the Dartford Core Strategy. PDF, 2132.58 KB, (this document will be subject to further refinement). This is part of a wider process to update Dartford's Local Plans, to guide planning applications and Dartford's regeneration into the 2030's.
The Local Plan process moves forward through evidence gathering and public consultation. Local evidence prepared so far includes:
- The formal 2019 Sustainability Appraisal 'Scoping Report' . PDF, 4478.46 KB
- Housing and the economic performance of Dartford
- Facts on individual neighbourhoods
- Cycle Network Development Study
- A SHLAA housing land refresh is underway.
Further work is being commissioned.
Consultation and Public Engagement
Further public involvement on the next stage of Local Plan drafting is expected summer 2019.
A consultation on the big 'Strategic Issues' PDF, 4398.3 KB for the development of the Borough was held in June/ July 2018. In support of the consultation, a ‘state of play’ report was available on sustainability PDF, 4318.37 KB. Individual Responses to the consultation can be found here, and a commentary on the feedback (and sites put forward) is now available in summary form PDF, 286.71 KB .
