Don’t lose build­ings

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Ashford Valley Hunt -

I agree with Mr Peters (De­cem­ber 19) about the Kent Wool Grow­ers de­vel­op­ment and oth­ers. Ash­ford seems to be com­mit­ted to re­mov­ing the ar­chi­tec­ture of its past his­tory as its record so far ap­pears to sug­gest. If you look at other ex­pand­ing towns such as New­bury, they have man­aged to re­tain a num­ber of their his­toric build­ings by giv­ing them a new use.

The ar­ti­cle seems to sug­gest that the Kent Wool Grow­ers’ move from Tan­nery Lane site to Sev­ing­ton Park is as­sured.

Un­til such time as the cur­rent pro­pos­als from AXA/DMI are ap­proved by Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil, this can­not be the case un­less the cur­rent con­sul­ta­tion on the Sev­ing­ton Park de­vel­op­ment and the pro­posed par­tial Junc­tion 10A is purely win­dow dress­ing.
