Regulation 18 Stage 2 Consultation

We are preparing a partial review of the Local Plan Core Strategy, Site Allocations and a Development Management Policies Document.  A Regulation 18 Stage 2 ran for six weeks from 23 October until 31 December 2020. This followed on from the Stage 1 consultation, which closed on 11 July 2018. Once adopted, these documents will form part of the Development Plan and replace some of the policies in the adopted Local Plan Core Strategy and the remaining saved policies in the Gravesham Local Plan First Review.
