Following intense lobbying by parish councils, residents, opposition councillors and a local MP, the deadline for responding to the Swale Local Plan Review has been extended to 30 April.

As the plan has gone straight to what is called Regulation 19, any comments or objections must be on the grounds of 'legal compliance' and 'soundness'.

The parish council is currently seeking advice on the best way to respond.

We plan to issue guidance in a newsletter that will be delivered to all households in Lynsted with Kingsdown in the early part of April.

The information will also be available on this website, so keep checking back for the latest news!
