The borough can expect a few fireworks as residents discover that plots near them have been put forward for development.

The council said that it received more than 330 submissions before the exercise closed on May 24.

The suggestions from landowners and developers will include sites for business development, retail and leisure as well as housing.

When the list is published, it does not mean that all those included will ultimately be green-flagged, but rather that the council will select from the options from the list that it thinks will best meet the requirements of its Local Plan Review.

The list will be published on the council's website: www.maidstone.gov.uk

The Local Plan Review will update the existing Local Plan which was adopted in October 2017, and provide for an extended time period, to 2037.

There are several stages in the process still to be undertaken, including further periods of public consultation, and the Review is not expected to be finally adopted until April, 2022.
