Wish You Were Here, Having your Say on the Chilmington Green Draft Community Development Strategy (2017-2019)

Public consultation event, Wednesday 19 July 2017, 4.30pm-7pm, Singleton Environment Centre

The Chilmington Green development site will see 5,750 new homes created for the borough over a period of about twenty years. Planning permission was granted early in 2017 with early works on site already underway.

Chilmington Green will be a place where high quality is apparent both in the build of the new homes and surrounding facilities, but also in the opportunities for local people to play an active role in creating and sustaining their community.

A Community Management Organisation (CMO) will be created which will be gifted community facilities such as play spaces, community centres, open space and much more. It will manage these facilities on behalf of Chilmington residents and play a key role in driving forward community action.

In order to support the creation of this new community, a draft community development strategy 2017-2019 has been created by Ashford Borough Council and its community partners. Led by the council with the coordination of delivery likely to be managed by the CMO, this Strategy sets out a framework for the delivery of community projects and activities. It is ambitious and regards the involvement of the residents as central to success.

The council and its partners welcome the views of local people on the Strategy [pdf] 667KB. There is a public consultation event at the Singleton Environment Centre on 19 July, 4.30-7pm where you can hear more, make comment and talk to the people involved or you can make your views heard by completing the online survey. The consultation closes on 16 August. There are also postcards distributed around the community which can be posted (free of charge) back to the council.

At the event on the 19 July you will also be able to learn more about the A28 Chart Road Improvement Scheme by Kent County Council.

For any queries about this consultation please email: chilmingtongreencommunity@ashford.gov.uk. The consultation closes on Wednesday 16 August 2017.

The outcomes will be taken forward into a final version of the Community Development Strategy, which will be shared with key stakeholders in September 2017, before its formally adopted by Ashford Borough Council in late 2017.

Please note: this is not a statutory planning consultation.
