Ashford Community Governance Review 2022
Ashford Borough Council is conducting a borough wide Community Governance Review (CGR) to consider if any changes are needed to current parish, town council or community council arrangements.
The primary purpose of the review is to deal with known issues but we would encourage all interested parties to let us know what they think about existing parish, town and community council arrangements and what changes, if any, they would like to see.
The consultation period will run from Monday 25 April to Monday 27 June 2022 and will be undertaken as set out in the Terms of Reference.
I’d be grateful if you would bring the CGR to the attention of the Parish Council and publicise it locally, on your noticeboards and on the Parish Council website using the link below. The Terms of Reference, Notice of Review and all review documentation can be viewed and downloaded using this link.
If members of the parish council or any resident of the parish wishes to make any representations these can be emailed to [email protected] or by post to Community Governance Review, Electoral Services, Ashford Borough Council, Civic Centre, Tannery Lane, Ashford, Kent TN23 1PL.
If you or any of your members have any questions or wish to discuss an issue prior to making a submission please call me on 01233 330 462. I’d also be happy to attend a meeting of the Parish Council if you think that will help.
