It is unclear how the Parish Council will operate after 2nd May because it does not have enough councillors to form a quorum; the minimum is 3 for High Halden, but only 2 nominations were received.
Please note that this meeting has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

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.
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.
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

How much adventure can you take? Something for everyone ! ‘Life is not an X Box – 2017 Morocco Adventure’
Calling all young adults in High Halden and nearby…….
The past two years have been fantastically successful in providing opportunities for adventure in a very different cultural and mountainous country. You will be in a team of up to 25 leaving High Halden Village Green on Saturday 12 August and return on Sunday 20 August. You will be staying in Marrakech for 1 night, inside the medina / souk area where a local guide will take you on a tour of the tanneries / souks / Bahia Palace and other places of interest.
Then off to the Atlas mountains where you will stay in the Riad Dar Imlil in the small town of Imlil about 2 hours from Marrakech. Stopping for a short camel trek on the way to Imlil, you will then leave your baggage and straight out on a 3 hour orientation trek and meet our guides, Jamal and Mohammed.
The following days will be made up of foot trekking / mule supported trekking / cultural input and, for some, the opportunity of a three day trek to the top of Jebel Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa. Returning to Marrakech for the last night gives an opportunity for shopping and haggling !!!
The generous support of High Halden Parish Council; Ashford Borough Council; Kent Police and many individual sponsors make this possible and this opportunity is life-changing.
Are you up for it?
There will be briefing evenings in April and July with a team building weekend in July which will include a half day certificated first aid course. You have to pay for your coach fare from High Halden and return; your return air fare Gatwick to Marrakech; travel insurance and baggage allowance on the plane. Spending money is down to you !!
You will all be met by me at Marrakech airport on your arrival and transported to our hotel in the souk. All hotel costs, food, treks, guided tours and transport in Morocco are covered by sponsors who are paying £320 for each of you and for this you have to attend briefings and team building and help with the High Halden bus shelter cleaning rota.
AND FOR FAMILIES WHO MIGHT LIKE SMALLER BITE SIZE CHUNKS OF ADVENTURE. Shorter treks suitable for children and families /mule treks/ camel rides and guided tours of Marrakech…..Cultural understanding…..whatever you want is probably possible. Photography? Bird watching? A quiet time of contemplation? Yoga ? …..I will talk with you about what the total cost of YOUR family adventure will be. There is no sponsorship money available for anyone other than the X Box team.
SO…WHETHER YOU WANT TO JOIN IN AS A FULL-ON ADVENTURER IN THE ‘X BOX’ TEAM / KNOW SOMEONE WHO MIGHT BE INTERESTED OR IF YOU PREFER A QUIETER FAMILY EXPERIENCE IN A PART OF THE WORLD WHICH WOULD ALMOST CERTAINLY NOT BE YOUR USUAL HOLIDAY DESTINATION
CONTACT DAVID BALL on firstname.lastname@example.org 01233 850229
