Tenterden town councillors are studying radical new government proposals to change the planning laws.
The Town Council’s planning committee last night (Monday, 7 September) reviewed a letter from Ashford Borough Council (ABC) leader Cllr Gerry Clarkson, in which he outlined provisional proposals in the ‘Planning for the Future’ white paper. ABC is the principal planning authority for Tenterden.
The letter said that the white paper proposed simplifying local plans and creating three areas for potential developments – growth areas to allow substantial development, renewal areas with some development, and protected areas where strict controls would apply.
