Maidstone Borough Council (MBC) has been informed by the independent Inspector that he wishes to undertake a final consultation on the Local Plan Review.

The further consultation is in order to allow the Local Plan Review Examination to be brought to a close so that the Inspector may therefore issue his Final Report. The Council understands that this consultation is focussed on the published Infrastructure Delivery Plan update, Integrated Transport Strategy update and Viability Assessment update. In addition, there will be concluding evidence around the M2 junction 3 infrastructure.

Cllr Paul Cooper, MBC Cabinet Member for Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development said:

“As the Local Planning Authority, Maidstone Borough Council welcomes the Inspector’s decision as this will help ensure that the Local Plan Review is given as much protection as possible against any potential technical challenges.”

The further consultation of the Maidstone Local Plan Review entitled ‘Inspector’s Consultation on Technical Documents 2024’ started today, Monday 15 January and will finish on 14 February. Anyone who wishes to respond to this consultation may do so using the Council’s website:

Once the consultation has been completed and the Local Plan Review Examination has been brought to a close the Inspector can then issue his Final Report. Following the receipt of that, the Local Plan will be presented to Maidstone’s Full Council with a view to adoption.
