Councillors have agreed to extend Swale Borough Council’s local plan review consultation to Friday, 30 April.

The local plan consultation has been extended by an additional 38 days, increasing the total consultation period to almost 12 weeks – twice the length of the previous consultation for the Local Plan Review in 2018.

The council has worked hard during a difficult year to finalise a local plan with innovative policies to be proud of and people can now submit their representations.

With libraries and council offices closed due to the pandemic, physical copies of the plans are not available at these locations, but the plan can be viewed on our website, and hard copies can be mailed out to those who need them.

The council has also written to all households in the borough to let them know how they can share their views so that as many people as possible can have the chance to respond.

The consultation started on Monday, 8 February and the local plan review can be viewed on the council’s website here.

To request hard copies, or extracts from documents, email LPcomments@swale.gov.uk or call 01795 417 014.
