Local Plan Review Evidence

Infrastructure

Evidence we've gathered relating to Infrastructure in Swale for the local plan review.

The Swale Transport Model (6.3MB PDF) was developed to test the traffic impacts of both new developments and transport infrastructure across Swale. Following the Local Plan Option Test transport work, which was undertaken in May 2019, Sweco was appointed to use the model to run additional scenarios to support further assessments for the Local Plan Review with a set of new development assumptions and mitigation measures. The work was done in partnership with Kent Highways.

The model tested both the Objectively Assessed Need for Swale, 1054 dwellings per annum, and 776 dpa which was the housing target in the adopted Local Plan 2017.

A final run of the model is being undertaken now that the Council have chosen their preferred option. This should be reported to Local Plan Panel in late Spring 2021.
