Hospital parking plan
PLANS for an extra 140 parking spaces at the William Harvey hospital are still on hold, as planning permission has yet to be granted.
Howard Jones, facilities director at the hospital, said: “We put in an application to Ashford Borough Council nine months ago for a new 140-space car park, and we are still waiting to hear. “We are a little disappointed by that. “We believe the hold up is related to the highways authority, who are concerned that it is a little close to the motorway.”
