Brabourne Parish Council welcomes the opportunity to comment on the draft Ashford Local Plan to 2030. During the call for sites no sites were put forward in Brabourne. However the inclusion of sites in Smeeth, which is immediately to the south of Brabourne, will have an impact on Brabourne because the main access and egress to Brabourne is through Smeeth. The majority of Brabourne traffic runs to the A20, joining it via Church Road, Smeeth or The Ridgeway, Smeeth. A number of sites were submit

The County Council – as Local Minerals and Waste Planning Authority - confirms that, according to British Geological Survey safeguarding data, Sandstone (Folkestone Formation) is present within the allocated site and are vulnerable to sterilisation. As set out in the adopted Kent Minerals and Waste Local Plan 2013-2030, Policy CSM 5: Land-won Mineral Safeguarding and Policy DM 7: Safeguarding Mineral Resources detail how minerals of economic importance will be safeguarded from being unnecessari

Smeeth Parish Council welcomes the opportunity to comment on the draft Ashford Local Plan to 2030. Of the sites submitted in Smeeth parish during the call for sites, only one has been included in the Regulation 19 version published in June 2016, which is S38 Land south of Church Road. The Parish Council has, however, been apprised of a late proposal, for residential development on the playing field ('Smeeth and Brabourne playing fields development') which will likely be submitted on or before 1

Policy S38 allocates up to 30 dwellings on the site known as 'Smeeth – Land South of Church Road'. In line with paragraph 162 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the National Planning Practice Guidance (NPPG), we have undertaken an assessment of our infrastructure, including its ability to meet the forecast demand for the proposed development. That assessment reveals that additional local sewerage infrastructure would be required to accommodate the proposed development (invo

CPRE objects to this proposal. The proposed allocation is too dense and is not in keeping with the character of the locality. It should be a maximum of 6.

This representation relates to the proposed allocation S37 – Smeeth, Land south of Church Road, and is made on behalf of the landowners of the proposed allocation who continue to be committed to bringing this site forward for development. It is considered that the proposed allocation has been appropriately considered and is consistent with National Policy. It is a positive response to the council's requirement to provide sufficient housing to meet objectively assessed housing need, the allocati

4.370 Suitable access to site: The access is from Church Road which narrows at this point; lorries and agricultural vehicles cannot pass without pulling over. A development of up to 30units could bring 60 extra vehicles to this site; 120 car movements per day onto a narrow country lane with high hedges and trees to each side would be dangerous. The site is also near the primary school, which generates extra car movements twice a day (many children are driven to school from Ashford) with nose-to-

Having lived at Peelers, Church Road, Smeeth for over 20 years I feel that I have some local knowledge of which your Inspector is not aware of. Can I please point out the following in reference to the site and I refer to the site assessment/screening sheet. I note the categories are scored by a minus or plus number Having scoured the Draft Plan I cannot find any reference to these scores, therefore, I am unable to determine the importance given to them. However, I would like to make the followi
