Local plans must be consistent with national policy but the adopted local plan also takes on board local planning issues that are important to Maidstone.
The Maidstone Borough Local Plan provides a framework for development until 2031. It plans for homes, jobs, shopping, leisure and the environment, and plans for infrastructure to support these.
The policies within the plan will be used to make planning decisions.
We formally adopted our adopted Local Plan on 25 October 2017.
*Conservation Area Boundaries are subject to revision. For up to date conservation area boundary maps please refer to the conservation page.

We formally approved our Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule on 25 October 2017. It was implemented on Monday 1 October 2018. You can view it on our Community Infrastructure Levy page.
The Infrastructure Delivery Plan 2020 (IDP) accompanies the Maidstone Borough Local Plan. The IDP identifies the infrastructure schemes considered necessary to support the development proposed in the Local Plan, outlines how and when these will be delivered. The IDP is a “living document”, subject to regular review and therefore will build upon the emerging Local Plan Review.
