The Sombornes & Ashley Planning for the Future Project “A chance for the residents of The Sombornes and Ashley to have their say in planning the way�

Project is launched! On 30th June in the Village Hall a new exciting project was launched for the whole of The Sombornes and Ashley community. We are going to look at a lot of important issues and write a report to clearly state what we as a community want for the future – our plan! Read on to find out what we are doing and how you can help in a very easy way…….. July 2012


The Report There will be four sections:1. A Village Design Statement (VDS) together with a statement on our important Local Green Spaces 2. A list of our Assets of Community Value 3. An improvement plan for all aspects our community 4. Ward Profile – no not a Tony Ward profile but one for the King’s Somborne & Michelmersh electoral ward. July 2012


Why are we doing this? • The VDS and Local Green Spaces become official planning documents and are referred to in all planning applications. • By registering our important assets then if they come under threat of disposal we have more time to bid to buy • By having an improvement plan we have a better chance to obtain funding. • The Ward Profile tells us the sort of issues we might face in our community July 2012
