Welcome to the Lyminge Parish Plan Website. This site has been produced to give an online summary of the process of producing a plan for the future of Lyminge Parish, Kent, UK. The parish is mostly rural and consists of three settlements Lyminge, Etchinghill & Rhodes Minnis. The Lyminge Parish Plan Group was established in 2003 by Lyminge Parish Council to produce a statement that reflects how the local community sees itself developing over the next few years.
This process of producing a plan has the following aims:
To reflect the views of all sections of the community;
To identify which features and local characteristics people value;
To identify local problems and opportunities;
To state how residents want the community to develop in the future;
To produce a plan of action to achieve this vision.
Lyminge Parish Plan Group used a number of activities to achieve these aims. Initially there was the Three Wishes Campaign where residents were asked what their three most important desires were for the future of the parish. This was followed by a photographic project to identify those places in the parish that are typical of this locality. Roadshows have been held which have displayed the past, present and possible future of Lyminge. Visitors have been asked to identify what is important to them from the past, present and for the future. There have been special questions for the young at heart. The final stage of the consultation process
was to send a questionnaire to all residents in this area. This final process is now
complete and the full report has been produced. You can download a copy of
