Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

CEN­TRAL Ash­ford Com­mu­nity Fo­rum is hold­ing a pub­lic meet­ing on June 12 in the Fur­ley Hall from 7pm to con­sider the ad­van­tages of be­com­ing an ur­ban parish.

Coun­cil of­fi­cials will be at­tend­ing for a pre­sen­ta­tion of the parish­ing process ex­plain­ing all the ben­e­fits and disad­van­tages.

There will also be up­dates on progress on both the War­ren Park and Ride scheme and the Ring Road works.

At their last meet­ing mem­bers dis­cussed a num­ber of plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tions in the area and noted that de­vel­op­ment pro­pos­als for the Fur­ley Hall site in Maid­stone Road had been with­drawn.

There was also praise for the new sculp­ture in Queen Mother’s Park at Hen­wood and high­lighted as the kind of project that the Fo­rum could com­plete it­self if it be­came a parish with its own bud­get.
