A track record of wip­ing out the past

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Notice To Benefits Claimants -

I read with in­ter­est the ar­ti­cle con­cern­ing the re­de­vel­op­ment of the Kent Wool Grow­ers site in Tan­nery Lane (KE, De­cem­ber 26), and it seems, that the present coun­cil, as with pre­vi­ous town coun­cils, has lit­tle or no re­gard for any­thing his­toric to do with the town.

Th­ese pro­pos­als are just the lat­est which threaten to wipe out glimpses of Ash­ford’s past. This af­ter the near to­tal de­struc­tion of the rail­way works which could have been put to far bet­ter use, util­is­ing the orig­i­nal build­ings. What will be the next mon­stros­ity to get the go ahead? Gra­ham Marsh, Ash­ford
