Village Confines Workshop

Village Confines Workshop

Fri, 30 Nov 2018 10:00

Village Confines Workshop

10.00 - 12.00

Planning Officers at Ashford Borough Council have drawn the confines around a number of rural settlements in the borough. The Council intend to confirm this mapped line for the purposes of determining future relevant planning applications. The purpose of this note is to explain the process and what is expected of the Parish Councils.

The proposed map-based confines will help to guide and inform decision-making for planning applications where development is proposed on land adjacent to or within settlements listed in policies HOU5 and HOU3a. This will mean that residents and developers have a greater degree of clarity and certainty.

Maximum of two attendees per parish. RSVP

This is not an introductory course and P101/P111 level of knowledge is assumed. This course looks at how Local Councils can build on established planning training to contribute to planning by

1) greater understanding of the Government's strategic planning agenda,

2) the role of the appeal process and

3) wider development in the context of risks like flooding but also opportunities around shaping development to benefit the community. This course will also include problem solving and discussing topical issues in planning law and development.

The Little Match Girl

18.00

"A family show for Christmas inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's traditional tale.

London. Christmas Eve. The snow is falling. A little girl struggles fiercely through the cold. We follow her throughout the day as she encounters the funny and zany characters of the vibrant city streets.

In an attempt to stay warm she strikes a match, then a second and third. In the cold the flames blaze to life and the flickering fire illuminates her fantastic Christmas visions. With each strike we enter the tumultuous world of her imagination, meeting talking turkeys, dancing rats, Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their chattering Christmas tree.

Having delighted audiences in 2017 The Last Baguette return with this touching, madcap and heart-warming Christmas show. The company use their signature style of visual storytelling, live music and puppetry to shine a light on Hans Christian Andersen's classic winter tale. Written by T. A. Woodsmith, winner of the Sunday Times Playwriting Award." Credit: Godmersham Village Hall
