Call for sites 2016

Kent County Council is now calling for sites to be put forward for consideration within the Minerals and Waste Site Plans.

Following the adoption of the Kent Minerals and Waste Local Plan 2013-30, we are now commencing work on the preparation of the Minerals and Waste Site Plans. Whilst work was previously undertaken on the Sites Plans, it is now considered necessary to begin again for a number of reasons:

  • Since 2012 there may have been changes to landowner and promoter views about the sites.
  • Changes in protected land designations such as new or revised Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) which may affect a sites' deliverability.
  • A number of sites put forward in the previous preferred options document have since obtained planning permission and/or been developed.
  • The adopted Kent Minerals Waste Local Plan specifies the overall type of minerals and waste management development identified in the Sites Plans. This includes the requirement that landbanks for landwon soft sand, sharp sand and gravel be calculated separately.

The call for sites form sets out all the details which we require about a site. The Site Allocation Methodology Document sets out the types of minerals and waste management provisions which we are seeking, as well as the methodology to be employed when assessing a sites’ suitability.
