Scop­ing in­quiry re­vealed

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

Devel­op­ers have ap­proached the coun­cil about plans to build nearly 100 houses on farm­land near Ash­ford.

ECE Plan­ning has sub­mit­ted a scop­ing re­quest to Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil about land at Le­nacre Hall Farm near Le­nacre Street and Sandy­hurst Lane.

Up to 99 houses could be build there, with 40% be­ing listed as af­ford­able hous­ing. They would range from onebed­room prop­er­ties to fivebed­room houses.

ECE di­rec­tor Huw James said the land lies out­side of the area of out­stand­ing nat­u­ral beauty, while prop­er­ties would be of “high ar­chi­tec­tural qual­ity”, with plenty of open space.

Visit the coun­cil’s plan­ning sec­tion at www.ash­ford.gov. uk and search for ref­er­ence 17/00005/EIA/AS.
