Local Plan Documents: Ashford Borough Council

Local Plan Documents

The council has an adopted Core Strategy 2008 which sets the strategic vision and scale of planned growth for housing and jobs within the borough to 2021. This document is due to be formally reviewed by the end of 2015 and will be called the Local Plan to 2030. This will determine how the most sustainable and deliverable pattern of growth can be achieved within the borough.

The existing Local Development Framework (LDF) contains a collection of local development documents in addition to the Core Strategy 2008, that are geographical or issue specific and together these documents deliver the spatial planning objectives and policies for the borough. These documents are referred to as Development Plan Documents (DPDs), Area Action Plans (AAPs) and Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs). All types of document can be prepared and updated separately and are subject to rigorous procedures of Public Consultation.
