Residents have until 11.59pm this Wednesday (11 January 2023) to comment on the proposals for a new local plan.   The plan includes proposals for new homes, protecting business space and supporting our high streets. It also proposes new facilities such as schools, health centres and transport. Crucially it aims to protect the District’s character and natural and historic environment.


The scheduled drop in events have all taken place, but there are still a number of ways in which residents can have their say:

By completing the survey on line at


By requesting paper surveys by calling Sevenoaks District Council on 01732 227000 or collecting them from:

  • The Council Offices at Argyle Road,
  • Local town or parish council offices, or
  • Libraries within Sevenoaks District


When the consultation ends, all comments will be reviewed and there will be a further consultation on a revised Plan in autumn 2023. A final draft plan will be published in spring 2024 for further comments before it is examined by a Government appointed Planning Inspector later in 2024.
