Growth and Infrastructure Framework (GIF)

Infrastructure such as roads, schools, community facilities and healthcare is vital not only in creating sustainable communities, but also in bringing forward development.

The new Growth and Infrastructure Framework (GIF) for Kent and Medway predicts that £6.74 billion investment in infrastructure is required to unlock the growth potential of the area.

The framework has been developed by Kent County Council, Medway Council and the 12 district councils within Kent. It provides planners, developers and government at all levels with a comprehensive picture of growth and infrastructure at a strategic level across Kent and Medway to help prioritise investment to create new jobs, homes and infrastructure.
