Little Chart Plantation


Little Chart Parish Council is non-political and elected by village residents. It is the most local form of government and works to preserve the special character of our village. It can also provide a line of communication for local issues to be referred to Ashford Borough Council and other statutory bodies and organisations.

See the dates of our Meetings, Minutes and Agenda.

Our Meetings (approx. six per year, 2nd Tuesday bi-monthly) are open to all members of the public to attend and are normally held from 7.30pm to around 9.30pm, depending on the business on the agenda.

Next Parish Council Meeting – was to be held on Tuesday 11th January 2022 – this has now been postponed to a future date because of COVID/Omicron concerns. 

The agenda, which will be carried forward to the next in-person meeting, is available here (click for link).

The unconfirmed Minutes of the last meeting can be found on the Minutes and Agendas 2021 page.

Following advice received from the National Association of Local Councils, Meetings can no longer take place remotely (on Zoom). Arrangements were therefore made for meetings-in-person at the Village Hall. Those wishing to attend may like to note that the venue capacity is likely to be reduced by  social distancing measures, and the Test and Trace system may require the disclosure of personal data.
