Views on future of village
Boughton Aluph and Eastwell Parish Council has invited residents to have their say in the future development of the area in its Neighbourhood Plan.
The plan will set a blueprint for sustainable development up to the year 2030, with residents able to contribute their ideas online.
Parish council chairman Jason Matthews said there are four public meetings starting next week for people to have their say.
He said: “Together we will create a plan that will promote sustainable growth while preserving the rural character of our parish.
“We want to empower residents to influence where development should or should not take place, its scale, and the infrastructure needed to support it.”
He added that if residents back the plan, it will put the parish council in a strong position to stop unwanted housing and building schemes in the village.
There will be meetings held at Goat Lees Primary School and Goat Lees Community Hall from 7pm to 9pm on Thursday and Friday next week.
There will also be a meeting at 11am in the Iron Room in Boughton Lees on Saturday, September 19 and at 11am at Sandyacres in Sandyhurst Lane on Sunday, September 27.
