Hospi­tal park­ing plan

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
