Our Town: Our Future

Posted on Sep 4, 2018

Thank you to everyone who attended the Public Meeting at Westerham Hall last night.

CONSULTATION DEADLINE – Monday 10th September: 5pm . This is the last date for making your views known to Sevenoaks District Council.

Sevenoaks District Council have published their first draft of the Local Plan which sets out those sites within Westerham and the rest of the district – which might be suitable for development.

Please follow the link to view the slides:-

The fact that sites are included in this draft does not necessarily mean that they will be in the final version which will go to the Planning Inspector, an official responsible to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, who will decide if the plan is acceptable.

At this stage SDC is asking statutory bodies (eg Highways Agency, Environment Agency, Kent County Council) for their views on whether the developments are feasible, but they also want the community’s view.  Consultation opened on 16th July and ends 10th September

 You will be able to comment via SDC’s website www.sevenoaks.gov.uk/draftlocalplan. Alternatively, you can email planning.policy@sevenoaks.gov.uk or write to Planning Policy, Sevenoaks District Council, Argyle Road, Sevenoaks TN13 1HG with your comments.
