To date planning permission has been granted for over 200 residential units over 50 sites.The study is included as a Case Study within the Kent and Medway Housing Strategy as an example of good practice.

The work was presented at the Kent Housing Group Seminar on the 29th September 2011. The conference was well attended and the need for Local Authorities to gain an understanding of the extent and value of their landholdings was mentioned in a number of talks and seminars. After visiting our stand Henry Cleary OBE, the Deputy Director of the Department for Communities and Local Government, mentioned within his keynote speech the good work which had been undertaken in Ashford in this respect.
