Shared space is KCC’s responsibility
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
