The Parish Council developed a Neighbourhood Plan to give residents a voice in how our community changes and grows in the years up to 2030. The boundary of Boughton Aluph and Eastwell parishes has been designated as the Neighbourhood Plan Area by Ashford Borough Council.
We held a series of community meetings, exhibitions and surveys to engage with and seek the views of residents on what should be included in the Neighbourhood Plan and these views have been vital in ensuring the plan represents local opinions.
The Parish Council has a dedicated Neighbourhood Plan website at www.parishplan.uk where you can find our more about neighbourhood planning and read the finished plan.
Your Neighbourhood Plan was formally adopted as part of the Ashford Neighbourhood Development Plan at the Full Council Meeting of Ashford Borough Council on 21 October 2021.
