Shared space is KCC’s re­spon­si­bil­ity

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Stanhope Fire -

Can I en­lighten your cor­re­spon­dents (KE let­ters, Jan­uary 16) re­gard­ing the shared space in Ash­ford town cen­tre and es­pe­cially the sit­u­a­tion con­cern­ing the re­quired re­pairs.

It would ap­pear that it is not un­der­stood that the town’s shared space is a Kent County Coun­cil scheme and it is they, not Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil, who are obliged to carry out the re­pairs and foot the costs, some­thing that the Joint Trans­porta­tion Board at ABC will con­tinue to press for vig­or­ously.

I do wish that some of your cor­re­spon­dents would check their facts be­fore prof­fer­ing cer­tain ill-in­formed, and in some cases, cyn­i­cal com­ments. Cllr Bernard Heyes, Chair­man, Joint Trans­porta­tion Board, Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil
