There will be a presentation during the meeting by Daniel Carter, Principal Policy Planner at Ashford Borough Council, on ABC’s Draft Local Plan.
The new Local Plan will allocate sites for development as well as establishing planning policies and guidance to ensure local development is built in accordance with the principles of sustainable development.
Whilst much of the media comment will focus on the development site allocations, the general policies are just as important; e.g., the Draft Plan includes new policies on parking space provision for new developments. With 303 pages in the Local Plan document and 19 ‘Evidence Base’ documents there will not be time to present a detailed study during the meeting. We strongly recommend that you examine the plan in advance of the meeting.
The Draft Local Plan can be downloaded from the ABC Consultation Portal ➚ and the Evidence Base documents from the Planning pages ➚ on the ABC website. Hard copies can be examined at Ashford Gateway in Church Road and at The Civic Centre in Tannery Lane.
There will also be public exhibitions at various locations throughout the Borough, including in Park Mall, from 12 noon to 4 pm, on 6th July. This event has been posted on the South Ashford Calendar bit.ly/sacfcal
