Dartford Borough Council is working on its new Local Plan. This will set out the overall approach to development in the Borough to 2036, including major development locations, the amount and type of housing, Green Belt protection and the approach to jobs and shops.

It can help to ensure that local priorities remain relevant and up to date as national policy changes.

It will be carrying out a public consultation on a ‘Preferred Options’ stage document from 10 January 2020 to 21 February 2020 including in Ebbsfleet Garden City.

The purpose of this consultation will be to:

Consider preferred option for strategic issues and sites against the alternative approaches (including Dartford Town Centre, Ebbsfleet Central and Swanscombe Peninsula).

Outline preferred approaches for policies on topic areas including the pattern of development, housing, retail and employment.

Set out whether existing policies will be retained or replaced.

Three drop in events will be held at

Wednesday 29 January 3-7pm , Dartford Civic Centre
Monday 3 February 3-7pm at Ebbsfleet International Station
Tuesday 4 February 2-5.30pm, Orchards Shopping Centre
