Folkestone and Hythe Local Plan

In September 2020, the new Folkestone and Hythe District Places and Polices Local Plan was approved by the District Council, and is now in force.

The Plan identifies sites for housing, commercial, community and mixed-use development across the district, and also sets out general development management policies to guide decisions on planning applications. There are a range of detailed policies – covering design, transport, the natural and historic environment and other topics.

Details of the Plan and its impact can be seen at:

The Places and Policies Local Plan clearly impacts developments in Sandgate and should be read alongside the Sandgate Village Design Statement, which should also be considered for any significant planning application in the Sandgate Parish area.
