Great news – the hard work of all the volunteers and councillors on the Ash Neighbourhood Development Plan has been recognised by the examiner who has said:
It is clear that the Ash Neighbourhood Development Plan is the product of much hard work undertaken by the Parish Council, its Neighbourhood Plan Committee and the many individuals and stakeholders who have contributed to the preparation and development of the Plan. In my assessment, the Plan reflects the land use aspirations and objectives of the Ash community for the future planning of their Parish. The output is a Plan which should help guide the area’s development, making a positive contribution to informing decision-making on planning applications by Dover District Council.
Next move will be taking the plan to all residents in the parish who will be asked to vote on the plan at a referendum to be held in July. Details on this will follow.
