Consultation Launch – the Rough Draft

The rough draft plan was launched at:

Exhibition & Presentation on Saturday 23rd February

Benenden Village Hall, doors open 1:30pm;

Presentation 2-3pm;

Exhibition closed 4pm

Thanks to all those that contributed so far, and the 130-ish residents that managed to get along to see the exhibition and plan materials.

We are seeking feedback on this draft plan from residents, landowners and other stakeholders for around six – seven weeks.  At the same time we aim to obtain ‘Screening Approval’ from TWBC, and an independent Strategic Environmental Assessment Report.  Based on these inputs we will adjust the plan as required.

Below is a full copy of the plan, and the slides and key exhibition material.  You can email your feedback to  or use the Comment cards available to collect from the Community Shop, or simply pop a note into the Parish Office, addressed to Neighbourhood Plan team.  Please tell us what you like, support, and want us to keep, as well as areas you’d like to see changed and why.
