WYE3 Masterplan: its impact on our future

Crunch time approaches for WYE3 and for all of us who live in and around Wye, and who care about the village and its future. Ashford Borough Council will soon open a four-week public consultation on the WYE3 Masterplan. This will be your chance to influence Wye's future.

In 2016 Ashford Borough Council adopted the Wye Neighbourhood Plan after 94.7% of us voted in favour. The policies aim to manage the number of houses and the extra traffic in Wye, and to protect the village, the AONB countryside and wildlife from inappropriate development.

Telereal Trillium (TT) owns the 44 acre WYE3 site and has now written the WYE3 Masterplan, but this challenges the scale and type of development that we agreed in the Wye Neighbourhood Plan. TT has also revised its planning application 17/567/AS for the Wye College listed buildings.

To inform public debate the Parish Council will set out its position for Wye residents as soon as possible. Please look out for this information in the public library, noticeboards and for economy and speed, the parish e-newsletter...

A new way to fund improvements to Wye Village Hall improvements

Despite prodigious local fundraising efforts, and the generosity and support of so many residents, Stage 1 has exhausted most grant making bodies. Fundraising the whole £280,000 that is needed to complete Stage 2 presents the Wye Village Hall charity with an even tougher challenge.

Therefore, to soften the effect on residents the Parish Council has agreed, in principle, to take advantage of low fixed interest rates, and borrow a sum to allow the Village Hall to finish the project this year.

This new approach will not, repeat not, increase Wye's precept in 2018-2019, nor in future years. Instead, Wye PC can use the money that it already puts aside to support the Village Halls each year, (as it has done every year for at least 20 years), and use it to repay a loan. Fortunately, the Parish Council can borrow capital at low rates from the Public Works Loan Board (PWLB), fixed for the life of the loan. This plan is subject to Government approval and public support...
