Additional Potential Strategic Development Sites in the Green Belt

Welcome to the Sevenoaks District Local Plan consultation portal.

Please note that the consultation closed on Sunday 3 February 2019. Thank you to everyone who responded. 

The Council received a number of additional greenfield Green Belt housing allocations in response to our Draft Local Plan (Regulation 18) consultation process. Following our initial assessments, we consider that there are four potential strategic development sites which display social and community infrastructure benefits which could help address evidenced infrastructure deficiencies in the area.

This is a Regulation 18 consultation of the additional potential strategic development sites. The purpose of this consultation is to gather comments from the public and technical stakeholders on the four potential strategic development sites in the Green Belt. These are:

  • Land west of Childsbridge Lane and south of the Recreation Ground, Kemsing
  • Land north and south of Kemsing Station, Kemsing
  • Land south of Redhill Road, New Ash Green
  • Land between Hartfield Road and Hever Road, Edenbridge

Information on each potential development site can be found in the document below. The document includes a map of the site, the number of homes proposed, the size of the site and the social/community infrastructure offer being promoted by the landowner.  

While these four sites are not included in the Pre-Submission Draft Local Plan (Regulation 19 consultation), the Council considers that they have the potential to be allocated, subject to additional information being received and further consultation being undertaken. Any additions to the Regulation 19 version may need to be subject to additional targeted consultation prior to the Examination hearings. If you wish to appear at the examination with Planning Inspector, in relation to these four sites, you will also need to respond to the Regulation 19 Consultation.

The Regulation 19 Consultation asks whether you would like to speak at the examination, which is at the Planning Inspector's discretion, and can be found on the response form.
