Jeremy fails to get into gear over shared space invitation
TOP Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has failed to respond to letters asking him to come and see Ashford’s award-winning shared space scheme.
Former mayor and community and communications boss at Ashford council, Cllr Michael Claughton, has written several letters to the journalist and Top Gear presenter asking for him to visit.
The 50-year-old had predicted that the scheme would cause accidents. Ashford council is keen to show him the road and its clean record of no accidents.
Cllr Claughton said: “I said to him in a letter that I was aware he had made these comments and predictions when it was first opened back in October 2008.
“As there have been no accidents in the last 18 months I thought he might like to come down and see the scheme or maybe do something about it on Top Gear.”
A response has been received from the Top Gear office but
Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson only to say it would be passed on to Mr Clarkson.
THE shared space scheme failed to pick up its eleventh award since being created at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors South East Awards last week. The scheme was entered in the regeneration category but lost out to a block of flats and shops in Hampshire.
