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 have set up a Steering Group to take forward the day to day development of the Neighbourhood Plan, made up of volunteers living in the parish. At the early stages, the Parish Council engaged specialist planning consultants to assist us in producing a viable and sustainable plan.

To inform our Neighbourhood Plan we have held a series of meetings to engage with and seek the views of residents. A survey questionnaire was sent to every household in the parish in summer 2016 and we received an excellent response. There will be a parish referendum on the final Neighbourhood Plan document.

We have set up a dedicated Neighbourhood Plan website at where you follow our progress. You can also sign up to receive our regular Neighbourhood Plan e-newsletter. Or contact us at
