13/00046 - Kent Farmsteads Guidance

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Kent Farmsteads Guidance provides landowners, planners and applicants with simple guidance for understanding the key issues to inform sustainable development. This is in line with the NPPF which emphasises the delivery of sustainable development whilst stressing the importance of understanding local character and distinctiveness in determining planning applications, in plan-making and in decision-taking.


The Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment agreed the Guidance by Kent County Council, in order to encourage its use by landowners, applicants and planners and to achieve the aim of promoting sustainable development.  As the County Council was no longer able to adopt supplementary planning guidance, request the County Council to recommend adoption of the Guidance by district planning authorities and Medway Council as supplementary planning guidance to their local plans.
