A settlement boundary study has been prepared by AECOM for the Chartham Parish Neighbourhood Plan. The parish of Chartham consists of 5 separate settlements: Chartham Village, Shalmsford Street, St Augustine’s, Mystole and Chartham Hatch. 

The purpose of identifying settlement boundaries in the parish is to ensure any new development is consolidated within the existing settlement areas, so encouraging the sustainable growth of the parish. This report establishes a methodology to ascertain the settlement boundaries, and subsequently provides an assessment of the proposed settlement boundaries for the parish.
