The SPDs below have been brought forward since the Core Strategy was adopted.

Dartford Town Centre Framework:

This new document sets out how to co-ordinate and achieve regeneration of Dartford Town Centre, including Local Plan policies CS2 and DP15/16. See the full Framework Document.

The Town Centre Framework SPD was adopted by the Council on Thursday 28th July 2018, and will be applied to all site proposals, investment upgrades and applications within the Dartford Town Centre boundary shown on the Policies Map. This follows input in early 2018 from c.1,400 people who visited the public exhibitions, and over 200 questionnaire responses. We also had 21 detailed written responses raising a wide range of issues for consideration.
