1988 'Parish Plan'

Creating an inheritance - looking to the future

Work on the Parish Plan is now well under way and, once the various working groups have got to grips with their remits and undertaken some initial research, public meetings will be held early next year to start seeking wider views before a comprehensive survey is launched in the Parish.

In preparation for this, local residents might be interested to read the 1988 'Village Appraisal' which called itself a community survey of Brenchley and Matfield and was similar, in many ways, to the current parish plan project. It is interesting both to see how things have changed in the past 27 years and also how many of the views expressed then are still relevant today.
