Guarding the Green Belt

After four years working on the Local Development Framework for the district, Conservative controlled Sevenoaks District Council has gained Government approval for its plan to protect the Green Belt.

The plan will show where new housing can be built in coming years and this has been achieved without encroaching on the precious Green Belt which covers 93% of the Sevenoaks District.

And individual councillors keep a watchful eye on proposed developments and work tirelessly to ensure that nothing out of order creeps in. It’s an ongoing process as there can be a constant flow of planning applications which could breach Green Belt policy and must be dealt with.

If you have a concern about any development in your area, please contact your local councillors through the Sevenoaks District Council website. Conservative councillors are always pleased to hear from you.
