The council is required to report on the progress of the adopted Local Plan and to what extent Local Plan Policies are being achieved.
The council produces its Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) each year. The document reports on the progress of the local plan and whether the targets in Maidstone’s local planning policies are being achieved.
The Statement of Community Involvement 2020 sets out when and how stakeholders and the local community can get involved in the preparation of local plans, neighbourhood development plans and supplementary planning documents, and be involved in the process of decision making on planning applications.
A Covid 19 Temporary Addendum to the Statement of Community Involvement can be found here. As restrictions are lifted and libraries reopen the Council will make documents available for public viewing. See table below for information on which libraries are open and what documents will be available.

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.
