Maidstone Local Plan – open for comment

This is the link to the website:-

http://www.maidstone.gov.uk/council/have-your-say/current-consultations/local-plan-consultation

The following is taken from the website, with Maidstone commenting as follows:-

Background
We've produced a local plan to guide the future development of the borough. We're now confident our plan is sound and ready to send to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, once the consultation has finished. View the consultation Public Notice.

A local planning authority should submit a plan for examination which it considers “sound” – namely that it is;

Positively prepared – the plan should be prepared based on a strategy which seeks to meet objectively assessed development and infrastructure requirements, including unmet requirements from neighbouring authorities where it is reasonable to do so and consistent with achieving sustainable development
Justified – the plan should be the most appropriate strategy, when considered against the reasonable alternatives, based on proportionate evidence
Effective – the plan should be deliverable over its period and based on effective joint working on cross-boundary strategic priorities
Consistent with national policy – the plan should enable the delivery of sustainable development in accordance with the policies in the Framework.

This consultation seeks views on legal compliance, compliance with the Duty to Cooperate, and the four tests of soundness. Consideration should be given to the advice on making a representation (below).

Have a look at the evidence base supporting this plan, and for more information have a look at our Local Plan Frequently Asked Questions.

Why does Wormshill not have a Parish Council?

By law, parish councils must have an external audit carried out by a body or person authorised to undertake such an audit. This costs a minimum of around £500 which would mean a parish precept of around £8 – £10 a house per year just for the audit. As Maidstone Borough Council and Kent County Councils are responsible for matters such as the roads and street cleaning, whilst the village hall has its own committee which maintains the hall, the need to raise a precept is limited. Instead there is an Annual Village meeting to allow a forum for villagers to raise and discuss matters of importance with elected representatives at the Borough and County level, as well as with the police.
