Tonbridge and Malling Borough Local Plan - Saved Policies

Last Updated:

The Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 provides for the saving of policies in adopted local plans for a period of 3 years from the commencement date of the Act, which was 28 September 2004. Policies in adopted local plans at commencement date expired on 27 September 2007, unless extended by the Secretary of State beyond that date.

The Secretary of State's Direction came into effect on 28 September 2007 and accordingly all Local Plan policies not saved expired on 27 September and can no longer be used.
