Vil­lage takes over green

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Waste Collection Latest -

The Green in Wye looks set to be trans­ferred to the parish coun­cil.

At last week’s cabi­net meet­ing it was voted the land off Church­field Way, cur­rently owned by ABC, be passed to Wye with Hinx­hill parish coun­cil.

It will save the bor­ough coun­cil £5,000 a year in main­te­nance.

Port­fo­lio holder Cllr Neil Shorter (Con) said: “It en­ables the lo­cal pop­u­la­tion to take own­er­ship of this land and keep it in the state they want it to be kept.”
