At the Sevenoaks Town Council Annual Public Town Meeting held on the 14th March 2013 residents signalled their support for the Town Council to produce a Neighbourhood Plan.

The Plan is a once in a generation chance for local people to shape and guide the future of the town and to ensure that future development is sensitive to the town’s character and identity and to provide for the needs of future generations.

Since 2013 the Town Council and the Neighbourhood Plan Committee have undertaken extensive public consultation and engagement activities, including a Masterplan for Northern Sevenoaks to ensure that the content of the plan reflects what local people want. They have used this information to develop background work for the Plan and commission strategies and studies to support the emerging plan policies.

A six-week public consultation is set to run from Friday 31st January 2020 until Friday 13th March 2020. The public consultation will be launched in the Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Gallery on Buckhurst Lane on Friday 31st January and Saturday 1st February 2020. An exhibition will be available to view at the launch and at locations across the town through the six-week period (see below for details). Further information about the Neighbourhood Plan and how to comment on it are available on the Neighbourhood Plan website at sevenoaksndp.wordpress.com

Feedback from this initial consultation will be included where appropriate into the plan which will then be progressed through a statutory programme carried out by Sevenoaks District Council concluding in a referendum for the residents of Sevenoaks.
