MEETING The Neighbourhood Planning Committee Wednesday 26th February 2014 at 7.30pm

To be held at Sandyacres Sports and Social Centre on Sandyhurst Lane Wednesday 26th February 7.30pm All residents welcome.

An opportunity for all residents to find out what Neighbourhood Planning means to you and how you can influence the Ashford Borough Council Local Plan, which is currently being prepared.

ABC currently have planning permissions for 11000 houses up to 2030 and land owners and developers have submitted suggestions for sites with another potential 20000 properties. ABC are in the early stages of considering if any of these sites are suitable to be included in the Local Plan.

This is an opportunity for all residents to feed back to the Borough Council, how you wish Ashford to be developed, bearing in mind current traffic constraints, capacity at the local hospital, concerns over building and the impact it has on the run off of surface water, and the availability of local jobs.

The Parish Council is endeavoring to produce a Neighbourhood Plan to involve our residents in planning where and how much development takes place in the Parish. Please take time to come along and be involved in something which will shape the future of your town over the next 16 years.
