Stone Neighbourhood Plan

Examination of Neighbourhood Plan

The Examination of the Draft Stone Neighbourhood Plan has now started and the appointed Examiner is Ann Skippers. The Examiner has provided an Examination Note which sets out how she will conduct the Examination. This is available on the Stone Neighbourhood Plan Examination webpage.

NPPF Consultation on the Neighbourhood Plan

At the request of the Examiner, the Council carried out a focussed consultation on the Draft Stone Neighbourhood Plan PDF, 4083.54 KB in September 2021. The consultation took place because the government published a revised version of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) in July 2021. The responses have been sent to the Examiner for consideration.  These are available on the Stone Neighbourhood Plan Responses webpage.

Publication of Neighbourhood Plan

Dartford Borough Council published the Draft Stone Neighbourhood Plan PDF, 4083.54 KB for consultation in May 2021. The responses received at that stage will be sent to the Examiner for consideration. These are available on the Stone Neighbourhood Plan Responses webpage.

The Neighbourhood Plan supports the Local Plan and provides the opportunity for the local community to shape the future development of Stone. It sets out planning policies put forward by the Parish Council on green space & recreation, health & wellbeing, housing, local infrastructure, Horns Cross centre, and delivering the Plan.

The Neighbourhood Plan will apply to the neighbourhood area which was designated in October 2016. The neighbourhood area covers the whole area which was within the previous boundary of Stone Parish in 2016 – see Plan Boundary document below.
