Pa­per on way out

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

CHANGES to the way the pub­lic and parish coun­cils are no­ti­fied about plan­ning applications have been ap­proved by Ash­ford coun­cil’s ex­ec­u­tive. They in­volve a switch to email no­ti­fi­ca­tion rather than send­ing out pa­per copies of applications and de­ci­sions. The coun­cil will con­tinue to no­tify neigh­bours of applications and their de­ci­sions via let­ter or email and con­tinue to pro­vide copies of all applications to parish and town coun­cils un­til March 2010. The changes are ex­pected to save about £3,500 in 2009/10 and £10,000 in sub­se­quent years.
