Slide 1

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 Has Happened to the Neighbourhood Plan

After two years work, 100's of hours, public meetings and consultations, engagement with local schools, traders, residents, visitors and interest groups Hythe Town Council has decided not to form a Neighbourhood Plan Committee for 2014/15. The effect of this is to stop all further work on the plan.

How much did the plan REALLY cost local taxpayers

There has been some suggestion that the Steering Group of the Neighbourhood Plan were intending to spend vast sums of public money on consultants but this just isn’t the case. Only £1600 has been spent of an agreed £15750 budget. Substantial central government funding for the project has been returned depriving Hythe of valuable funding MORE

Why Hythe needs a Neighbourhood Plan – the benefits

A Neighbourhood Plan provides a way for local communities to shape the future of our town, by influencing how places may change through development. Local knowledge from living and working in a place, backed up by a sense of what needs to be protected or changed, makes the difference from plans prepared by district or county councils. MORE
