Boughton Aluph & Eastwell Neighbourhood Plan

The Parish Council is developing a Neighbourhood Plan to involve residents in the way our parish changes and grows in the years up to 2030. The parish boundary has been designated as the Neighbourhood Area by Ashford Borough Council.

We set up a volunteer Steering Group to take forward the day to day development of the Neighbourhood Plan. We have held a series of meetings to engage with and seek the views of residents on what should be included in the Plan. A survey questionnaire was sent to every household in the parish in summer 2016 and we received an excellent response. A draft Plan will be ready in 2018. There will be a parish referendum on the final Neighbourhood Plan document.

We have set up a dedicated Neighbourhood Plan website at where you can find our more about Neighbourhood Planning, follow our progress and add your views. You can also sign up to receive our occasional Neighbourhood Plan e-newsletter. Or contact the Steering Group at
