Chilham Conservation Area Management Plan

This page refers to Ashford Borough Council’s (ABC) consultation on the draft Chilham Conservation Area Management Plan. Chilham Parish Council is assisting ABC in the consultation process.

What is a conservation area management plan (CAMP)?

We are required to periodically formulate and publish proposals for the preservation and enhancement of conservation areas. A CAMP is a document that sets out how we intend to do this. A conservation area is designated to manage and protect the unique architectural and historic interest of a place. Chilham Parish Council commissioned a CAMP for Chilham conservation area and we have to consult on this plan before it is adopted and used.

How can I have a say?

A series of consultation events are being held by ABC in partnership with Chilham Parish Council (CPC). Ways in which you can have a say are set out below:

  1. Fill in the attached form and return to ABC using the instructions overleaf. An online form is also found at www.ashford.gov.uk/consultations.
  2. You are also invited to attend a public meeting about the document on Thursday 9 January 2020 at 6.30pm in Chilham Village Hall, Chilham Castle Estate, Chilham, CT4 8DB. The meeting will be attended by ABC officers and you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the proposals and air any concerns. There will also be a workshop style discussion.
  3. You also are invited to take part in a public ‘walkabout’ to visit key areas of interest identified within the draft Chilham CAMP. The walkabout will take place on Saturday 11 January 2020 at 10am. Meeting in Chilham Square, please email CPC’s parish clerk at clerk@chilhamparishcouncil.gov.uk or call 07923 631596 to book a free place.
