A Diversity Impact Assessment had been prepared for each draft plan. The assessments were set out at Appendices 3 and 4 to the report.








The Cabinet approved the publication of the draft High Halstow Neighbourhood Plan, as set out at Appendix 1, and the Arches (Chatham) Neighbourhood Plan, as set out at Appendix 2, for representations.
