Cliffe and Cliffe Woods Neighbourhood Plan (2015)
The parish council have agreed to start the process of creating a Neighbourhood Plan for our parish area. This is an opportunity for local residents to influence planning policy for our area and this document will have to be taken into account by Medway Council in developing their plans (Local Development Framework) and Planning Decisions). The timing is important because Medway Council are developing their Local Development Framework (the Local Plan for the Medway Council area, including the parish) and we will start to see proposals for development sites across the area later this year.
Meetings are being held Saturday 13th February 2016 (10am-12pm), Cliffe Memorial Hall and 20th Februaryu 10am-12pm Cliffe Woods Community Centre alongside the Medway Plan.16 August 2016
A public notice was placed in local papers announcing the start of the process and asked for comments, following this Medway Council approved our application for Neighbourhopd Plan designation
)The parish will help establish a Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group to create the plan :
1) Agree Scope of plan - this could cover areas such as (what we have and what we would like)
2) Develop plan in consultation with local residents, community groups, local businesses schools
3) Agree draft with Medway Council
4) Hold a Referendum - must be agreed by at least 50% of those voting.
5) Plan Adopted
There are no specific timescales yet, but it is likely to take the remainder of 2015 at least.
More information will be available as the plan is developed.

or Search for ‘Neighbourhod Plans’ - there are lots of resources available and links to plans already created around the country.
Sites for development have been suggested, but at this stage all have been rejected by the Medway Local Plan. The maps and Local Plan appraisal of the sites are included in three files (extracted from much larger Local Plan background papers).
