Neighbourhood Area Designation

Neighbourhood Area Designation – Hernhill Parish Council

Hernhill Parish Council has made an application to Swale Borough Council to designate a neighbourhood area. This is in area within which a neighbourhood plan can be prepared.

Neighbourhood plans give communities power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. The area applied for is the same as the Parish boundary, and can be viewed on a map, along with a letter for the reasons for the application, on Swale Borough Council’s website here:

Swale Borough Council is seeking your views on the suitability of the proposed area to be designated as a neighbourhood area. If you have any comments, you can submit these via email to: or by post to:

Planning Policy,
Swale House,
East Street,
ME10 3HT
Comments must be received by midday on Monday 16 March 2020, after which a decision will be made and published on Swale Borough Council’s website. If you have any questions, please contact 01795 417395 or

The Parish Council in due course will be looking for parishioners who are interested in contributing to and shaping the Neighbourhood Plan. More information will follow in the coming months
