Following the Medway Council Cabinet meeting on the 6 August, 2019, just to let you all know the good news that our application for a Neighbourhood Forum and Neighbourhood Planning Area has been approved.
Please find above a map where we have identified potential spots where trees could be planted. The locations have been based from our previous consultations events as part of our neighbourhood planning process and our own investigations.
We have also added with some of the locations an additional image with how that area could look with trees.
Please get in touch if you have any comments or suggestions of other potential sites where trees could go, with photo or rough location in our area.
The proposed Arches (Chatham) Neighbourhood Planning Forum has applied to appoint a Neighbourhood Area and a Neighbourhood Forum to develop a Neighbourhood Plan.

Taking into consideration conversations and point raised during our consultation event about our designated we are happy to report we have reflected these in the latest version of the proposed designated area (please see below) to be submitted to Medway Council.

Through out 2018 we have been discussing with our community and stakeholders, creating a Neighbourhood Plan for our area. We have chosen its aims and objectives which are for the Forum to produce a Neighbourhood Plan to improve the social, economic, environmental and general well-being of individuals living in a designated area and to further the interests of businesses operating in the same area who support the Neighbourhood Plan aims. It shall operate without distinction or discrimination on the grounds of gender, disability, sexual orientation or race, or of political, religious or other beliefs.
If your interested in being part of or involved in The Arches Neighbourhood Planning group please complete the below form and return to us or for more info get in touch.
We will be running two drop-in community events to share our idea and create a neighbourhood planning group.
Please see flyers for details and get involved
