Main Modifications to Ashford Local Plan

Chapter 2 - Formal review of the Local Plan (MM2)

Amend paragraph 2.26 text to read:

2.26 This Local Plan is intended to be formally reviewed, to ensure that the wider policy position is suitably up to date and the development envisaged - and supporting infrastructure – has been delivered. A decision whether to revise the Plan will be taken no later than five years from the adoption of this Plan. It is intended that the review any revised Plan will be adopted by the end of 2025 at the latest. This period of time provides the right balance between providing enough time to allow the policy framework to be implemented by the market and to give them certainty, with the inevitable need to respond to change as time goes by. However, should circumstances dictate, such as significant undersupply of housing delivery or the non-delivery of key infrastructure (namely Junction 10a) then an earlier formal review will be undertaken.
