Description

Sevenoaks District Council (SDC) proposes to undertake a District-wide Character Study (DWCS). The aim of this work is to understand the key characteristics across the District which, when read alongside other evidence base documents, will inform a context led approach to growth and change. The work should explain:

– Past influences and growth: both historical and more recent factors that have shaped growth in Sevenoaks District

– The present state: a snapshot of the current social, economic and physical character of our places; and

– Future trends: the factors that will influence growth and change over the period of the emerging Local Plan (2015- 2035) and the sensitivity of places to these changes.

It is anticipated that the DWCS will perform a number of different functions, including; an evidence base document for the emerging Local Plan, a framework for locally specific guidance, such as neighborhood plans and local design frameworks and a material consideration in planning decisions.
