Ashford Heritage Strategy

Ashford Borough Council (ABC) has published the Ashford Heritage Strategy, which seeks to safeguard and enhance the borough’s cultural heritage assets in a positive strategy for the conservation and enjoyment of the historic environment. Setting out a series of aims and objectives to safeguard assets, increase visibility and sustainably manage and develop the borough’s offer, the strategy also provides an evidence base for the Local Plan to 2030.

The Ashford Heritage Strategy highlights and explores eight key themes in the borough’s rich heritage, as well as highlighting particular case studies, local best practice and opportunities to capitalise on the borough’s unique offer. It was produced with significant stakeholder engagement, including a series of engagement workshops and exhibitions. The strategy was adopted in October 2017.
