Chronicle back page v3Consultation on the draft KANPlan is taking place over six weeks from the beginning of June. The Plan, when agreed, will give all of us in the area the opportunity to better influence local development.

The full draft Plan will be available in the Library, The Kington Town Council Offices, and Huntington and Kingswood Village Halls.

In addition there will be an exhibition in the Library and a special edition of the Kington Chronicle will be delivered to every household.  This will give a summary of the draft Plan, provide details of consultation events and include a questionnaire for your views.

Timetable for completion of the Plan

There is now a draft timetable towards the public referendum on this plan, in order to fulfil the process known as Regulation 14.

A Public Meeting was held on Wednesday 11th November to receive the reports from two of our consultants and to ask questions.

Part of the evening’s session was a “mind-mapping” exercise and a small survey to help inform the “Character Assessment” consultant’s final report. If you would like to contribute please complete their survey (Word doc. or pdf) and return it by email to Martin Fitton via the contact us page or by hand via the Clerk at the Old Police Station.

We have been holding public meetings and events to which everyone has been invited to attend. We have discussed many  issues, and gathered many ideas and suggestions from residents of the NP area, to form the basis for preparing draft policies.
