We have been appointed to prepare neighbourhood plan for Loose Parish Council. The process will involve consultation with the local community in the parish and the development of landscape protection policies and local design guidance.

In October 2014, we ran a very successful three day design forum with local residents and businesses. During the 72 hours, our team developed new ideas for traffic management, for the location of new community facilities. In 2015, the work has been refined further and a draft set of planning policies has been published for local consultation. Revisions and refinements will follow in 2016 before the plan is submitted to Maidstone Borough Council.


The Feria Urbanism team is involved in other neighbourhood plans in a series of towns and villages including Hawkhurst, Lewes, Ticehurst, Paddock Wood, Staplehurst and Faversham. The team has also worked with a neighbourhood forum on the edge of Bristol city centre and a neighbourhood plan group in the heart of Southampton city centre. If you wish to know more about these other neighbourhood plan projects, please get in touch.
