Vil­lage wants new sta­tus

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

Eger­ton is hop­ing to be­come a des­ig­nated neigh­bour­hood area.

Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil (ABC) re­ceived the ap­pli­ca­tion for the move from Eger­ton Parish Coun­cil in March.

If ap­proved, the new sta­tus will al­low the parish coun­cil to carry out its own neigh­bour­hood plan­ning and pre­pare an of­fi­cial neigh­bour­hood plan against which fu­ture plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tions will be as­sessed.

The ap­pli­ca­tion and map of the area can be viewed on the ABC Con­sul­ta­tion Por­tal www.ash­ford.gov.uk/con­sult, where com­ments can be made for a pe­riod of six weeks, un­til noon on Mon­day, June 5. Com­ments can be sent via email to plan­ning­pol­icy @ash­ford.gov.uk or by post to Plan­ning Pol­icy, Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil, Civic Cen­tre, Tan­nery Lane, Ash­ford, Kent TN23 1PL.

The ap­pli­ca­tion can be viewed at the Civic Cen­tre and Char­ing Li­brary and more in­for­ma­tion about neigh­bour­hood plans is avail­able at www.ash­ford.gov. uk/ neigh­bour­hood-plans.
