On behalf of Chartham Parish Council, a Steering Group consisting of elected Councillors and volunteers from the local community is preparing a Neighbourhood Plan that will influence and direct development in the parish over the next 15 years.

A key issue within the Parish that has been identified is the presence of brownfield, previously developed, and often derelict land which could be regenerated and brought back into use. Alongside this there is a need to provide new housing and other development within the Parish.

To address this, the Steering Group are looking to identify all sites which are available for development. To ensure no site is missed, the Parish Council is issuing a ‘Call for Sites’ and asking people to submit any sites to them before 1 April 2022. All sites submitted will be reviewed in due course and considered as part of the plan making process. Please note that this is a separate process to the Call for Sites undertaken by Canterbury City Council (CCC) – so if you believe you have a suitable site then please submit it to the Parish Council as part of this process even if you have previously submitted it to CCC.

Whilst there is currently an intention to focus on brownfield / previously developed and derelict / underutilised land we are looking to be made aware of all land that may be available for development. These sites may be suitable for any use, including housing, commercial and community use or a mixture of all three.  

To nominate a site please complete the form linked below and return it by post (to The Parish Office, Village Hall, Station Road, Chartham, Canterbury, Kent, CT4 7JA) or email (This email address is being protected from spambots.
