What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

The Tenterden Neighbourhood Plan aims to give local people more say about what gets built in their area. If passed at independent examination and then at local referendum, the Tenterden Neighbourhood Plan will be adopted by Ashford Borough Council. It will then be the plan which must be used in law to determine planning applications in across the Tenterden parish area. It will be used alongside Ashford Borough Council’s Local Plan.
