Otham Neighbourhood Plan
Following the Neighbourhood Plan referendum on 8th July 2021 we are pleased to report that the plan passed referendum with 98.8% voting yes.
The results are available on Maidstone Borough Council's Neighbourhood Planning pages: https://localplan.maidstone.gov.uk/home/neighbourhood-planning
The next steps are to present the results of the referendum to Maidstone Borough Council's Strategic Planning and Infrastructure Committee on 22nd September with a recommendation that Full Council ‘make’ the Otham Neighbourhood Plan.
In line with Section 38 (3A) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, the Otham Neighbourhood Plan is now part of development plan for Maidstone Borough and will be used in decision making.
Thank you for all your support over the last few years.
Cllr Rachel Gray
