Aldington & Bonnington Parish was announced as a designated neighbourhood Planning Area on 7th November 2019 and has started working towards making a plan for the join parishes.

Despite the various COVID lockdowns and restrictions the Neighbourhood Plan (NP) Steering Team have laid the foundations for the Aldington & Bonnington Neighbourhood Plan.  An online and paper survey, Questionnaire 1, was conducted during August 2020.  Analysis of the responses to that survey through October and November enabled the Steering Team to participate in a virtual feedback workshop to identify the strongest topic areas and decide where our Plan needs to focus.

Next steps are to publish the Vision and Objectives of the Plan for further community feedback.
