Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Most Unromantic Man Competition -

Plans for a new ac­com­mo­da­tion for young peo­ple at risk of home­less­ness went on dis­play last week.

Gold­ing Homes hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tion and Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil (ABC) ex­hib­ited pro­pos­als for the de­vel­op­ment at The Limes, in Stan­hope, Ash­ford last Fri­day at The John Wal­lis Academy.

The scheme would see the play area re­lo­cated and im­proved, and spe­cial­ist ac­com­mo­da­tion built to house up to eight young peo­ple at risk of home­less­ness.

One of the homes will be ac­ces­si­ble for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic were in­vited to view and com­ment on the plans.

ABC hous­ing chief Cllr Aline Hicks said: “We be­lieve th­ese homes are vi­tal to help us pro- vide much-needed sup­ported ac­com­mo­da­tion at a time when pre­vent­ing home­less­ness has never been more im­por­tant. “Not only that but the com- mu­nity stands to ben­e­fit from im­proved play fa­cil­i­ties.”

A plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion is ex­pected to go be­fore ABC in Fe­bru­ary.
