Proposed Submission Version of the Local Plan

Welcome to the Sevenoaks District Local Plan consultation portal.Local Plan Draft Cover December 2018

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

Supporting documents for this consultation can now be found at 

Here you will find the Proposed Submission Version Regulation 19 consultation document, associated appendices and supporting documents. This is the final opportunity to make comments before the documents are submitted to the Government for examination.

The Regulation 19 consultation focuses specifically on the tests of 'soundness' set out in the Government planning guidance.  These tests will form the basis of the Inspector's assessment when the plan reaches examination.  The Plan contains policies and land allocations to meet housing needs as far as possible, maintain the vast majority of Green Belt in the district, strengthen local employment and protect our valued natural environment.

A guidance note has been prepared for respondents on what a Regulation 19 consultation is, how you can respond to this consultation and what to do if you would like to take part in the oral part of the public examination.  We would urge respondents to read the guidance note before responding to the consultation.
