Since the start of 2017, various consultation events and public exhibitions have been held to enable Ashford Borough Council, the landowner Telereal Trillium, Wye with Hinxhill Parish Council and the local community to help inform a draft WYE3 Masterplan. This masterplan is now ready for consultation and we would welcome your comments.
The consultation will run for 4 weeks from 26th March to 5pm on 1st May 2018.
Following the submission of the Wye Neighbourhood Plan to Ashford Borough Council, the plan was publicised, representations were invited and an independent examiner appointed. The independent examiner’s report concluded that, subject to making the modifications recommended, the plan met the basic conditions set out in the legislation and should proceed to a neighbourhood planning referendum.
The Neighbourhood Plan (amended in line with the examiner’s proposed modifications) was the subject of a referendum held on Thursday 8 September 2016. 94.72% of those who voted were in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan.
