Planning permission is a key part of the planning process, and a part that I urge all residents who wish to build, to complete. If your planned construction does not require permission, the officers at Ashford Borough Council will let you know this.
Building without the required permission could lead to an enforcement order, which would mean you need to remove the construction or face prosecution. Saxon Shore is a beautiful area that we can keep beautiful by following planning rules and regulation, and make sure that we can continue to enjoy Saxon Shore.
As Councillor for the area, I will be increasing efforts in 2014 to expose all those that abuse the planning system by failing to apply for planning permission, in order to safeguard Saxon Shore.
