This is Hythe
Hythe, is one of the original Cinque Ports. Most of the immediate area is residential. The Town spreads up the hillside above the Royal Military canal. At the foot of the hill is the old and narrow High Street with further residential areas extending to the sea front. The Council boundary extends to West Hythe, Seabrook to the East and Shepway Cross to the north.
What We Are Doing
A Neighbourhood Development Plan is being developed, recent legislative changes allow for more local input to govern and control the development in Hythe over the course of the next 15 – 20 years.
All current workshops hand consultations are now complete and the results are being analysed. We shall publish the outcomes in due course
What Is A Neighbourhood Plan
It is a statutory land use based plan which means that it has legal teeth and, once adopted, it will be used by the Local Planning Authority when it comes to the determination of submitted planning applications. It will be relied upon when dealing with planning appeals and at any public inquiries.
