Brabourne Parish Council has adopted the Brabourne Development Policy, which summarises the Village Protection Policy, see below Proposed Landscape Protection Policy, which was drawn up in September 2016.

It was originally hoped that the Village Protection Policy (VPP) in its entirety would be incorporated into the Ashford Local Plan 2030 but this did not happen as Ashford Borough Council felt that the salient points were incorporated into the Local Plan 2030.

Proposals for reform of the planning system in England are currently under consultation. To read the White Paper, click here.
