At the Annual Town Meeting on 23 May 2016, it was proposed to set up a forum to initiate a conversation with developers, Faversham Future Forum is the outcome. It is not a committee of the Town Council. "There are four to six developments with outline planning permission covering all four corners of the town. This is not about the how or why, but working together to create a wish list to take forward to developers. We won’t all get what we want, but if we work together we may get something. There are people in Faversham with skills that can help the process." The Mayor, Cllr Shiel Campbell.
