Do you know what’s happening in Loose?

  • The parish council is looking into purchasing a defibrillator for the parish. If it goes ahead, it is envisaged that it will be accommodated in the red telephone box on the village green, which is also being turned into an information kiosk.
  • The parish pavilion now has a number of regular vacant slots during weekdays for anyone wishing to hire it. We are also able to take bookings for anyone wishing to hire it on an ad-hoc basis (minimum 2 hours) during weekdays or at weekends.
  • Residents are asked to be on the look-out for any anti-social behaviour or suspicious activities, particularly around the Brooks, Brooks Field and the King George V Playing Field. If you spot anything, please record as many details as possible and ring the police on 101 (or 999 if an emergency).  You are strongly advised not to tackle the problem yourself.  

Loose Neighbourhood Plan

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Now that the consultation period has finished the Loose Parish Council  will gather together all the comments received and produce an official consultation statement listing all the views and opinions and how the plan is to be amended,if appropriate.The revised Loose Neighbourhood Plan together with the Consultation Statement will then be formally submitted to Maidstone Borough Council.

Maidstone Borough Council will then publish the plan for a further six week period of consultation after which an independent planning examiner will be appointed to examine the plan.

Should the independent examiner find the Loose Neighbourhood Plan to be in conformity with the regulations then it will go forward to a Parish referendum.
