Medway Council has written a draft Development Brief for the Lodge Hill site. This sets out their detailed objectives for the proposed new settlement of Lodge Hill and its relationship to the surrounding area. The Development Brief will serve as a guide for planning applications over the course of the development of the Lodge Hill site. It will also consider opportunities for integration with the wider area in the context of the council’s broader aspirations for the Hoo Peninsula.
They are seeking your views on the contents of the Development Brief. They want to make sure it reflects the community’s needs while continuing to promote growth within Medway. They encourage you to view the draft Development Brief and submit comments through the Limehouse online consultation system. If you register as a user you will be able to:

You can also download a copy of the draft Development Brief (pdf 3,657KB) and comment using this response form (pdf 241KB). They would prefer to receive comments electronically, but you can also post them to the address at the foot of the page.
