DE­SIGNS AGREED

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - JUNCTION 10 -

ASH­FORD coun­cil has agreed to a de­sign code for de­vel­op­ers of the old Ash­ford Bar­racks site, which will pro­vide a mix of in­dus­try and homes, with its own high street of shops and of­fices. The coun­cil says the de­tailed Rep­ton Manor De­sign Code is part of the drive to pro­vide a com­mu­nity with fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing schools within walk­ing dis­tance of homes, to re­duce car use. A spe­cial fea­ture will be a square at the his­toric Rep­ton Manor House and it has been agreed that the ur­ban-style area will have no build­ings over four storeys high.

Coun­cil­lors have agreed that Brook­field Court shop­ping precinct will be de­mol­ished and re­placed with shops and homes
