DDC’s New Local Housing Plan will have a big impact on Nonington.
Dover District Council are conducting a public consultation on their Local Development Plan (LDP). The LDP lists 11,920 new dwellings planned for sites across the district. Because of its location, Nonington is at high risk of severe traffic impacts from 2,500 proposed new houses that look to increase traffic levels through the village by an estimated 35%-40%.
It is crucial that everyone in Nonington takes this threat seriously. If we want to protect our village, we must act now.

Nonington Parish Council commissioned a report to review the draft LDP in order to identify the risks to Nonington. Key findings and time frame are set out below:
No evidence of then traffic impact of rural roads around Aylesham and Elvington has been considered in this plan.
We are a small village Parish Council, with limited resources and staffed by unpaid volunteers. DDC has a full time team of professional planners and expert consultants. If we want to influence DDC’s plans, we must all object to this draft plan.
