Village confines

The Parish Council intend to define the built village confines/envelope on a map, so that it is clear to residents, landowners, developers, Ashford Borough Council and the Planning Inspectorate, where the built up part of High Halden begins and ends. The envelope is designed to clarify where development might be acceptable. Development outside of it would be resisted.

Working Group
We would like parishioners to take an active part in the process and a working group will be set up comprising Parish Councillors and up to 10 residents. Ideally, the members of the group will be representative of all areas of the parish.

Role of the group
The group will primarily determine the extent of any confines by assessing the village landscape, character, setting and its important features and through debate and consultation with the community, decide where the boundary line should be drawn on a map.
They will also be responsible for responding to questions and queries in the process of consulting with the wider public. The minutes of the group meetings will be posted on the village website and Parish Council noticeboards for transparency.

Public Consultation
There will be a Public Consultation once the process is underway, to enable everyone to have an opportunity to give their views, which will be taken into consideration.
Would you like to be part of the group?
Please apply by email or letter to the clerk and include:

  • Your name
  • Home address or in which area of the village you live.
  • 3 reasons why you would like to be part of the group.

Applications must be received by Tuesday 31st October
Clerk: susanwood@uwclub.net

100 miles for 100 years free First World War Heritage Trails – your opportunity to share memories of a relative or place from 1914-1918

Do you have a First World War relative who lived in any of these towns Ashford, Canterbury, Dartford, Deal, Dover, Gravesend, Herne Bay, High Brooms, Maidstone, Minster, Sheerness, Sevenoaks, Southborough, and Tenterden? Then this is your opportunity to have them remembered on a First World War self guided heritage trail.

100 miles for 100 years, a Heritage Lottery Fund funded project, are developing heritage trails in all of these areas to be available with the ones we already have developed in Appledore, Harbledown, Lydd, Ramsgate and Tonbridge where we already feature family memories- see our website www.kentww1.com for the 100 miles trails.

So if your relative was a local footballer like Herbert Silver from Southborough, who survived the War and is remembered by his grand daughter.











Or a special constable like Harry Mittell from Lydd who is remembered by his great niece.

We want to hear from you.









Have you got a photo of the Peace Celebrations like this one from Dover or do you have any family stories about the Peace Celebrations?










Or a military wedding like this one in Southborough on the 12th November 1918 when a nurse married a soldier the day after Armistice?













Perhaps you have a Death Penny like this one for Raymond Turner of Lydd who died aged 22 on 13th July 1916 at the Somme.









Even if all you have is a local postcard from the period this will show where those people from 100 years ago lived, worked or went to school.


To share any images or stories with us you can upload via the website www.kentww1.com or you can send by e-mail to info@kentww1.com. For any queries or if you have a story you want to share you can also e-mail darrienne.price@screensouth.org
