Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Comings And Goings -

Con­struc­tion work will soon be­gin on the site of the for­mer By­brook In­fant School.

Hoard­ings were placed around the site in By­brook Road, Ken­ning­ton, in late De­cem­ber, with de­mo­li­tion work sched­uled to start in the next six weeks.

Per­mis­sion was granted for a small res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment of 14 prop­er­ties to be con­structed on the site back in April 2013.

The scheme will com­prise four five-bed­room homes, four four-bed­room homes and six three-bed­room houses.

The re­de­vel­op­ment is ex­pected to be com­pleted early next year.

By­brook In­fants School opened in 1965. It closed in 2008 and has been derelict and heav­ily van­dalised since.

It was re­placed by the Phoenix Com­mu­nity School, which was con­structed on the site of the nearby for­mer By­brook Ju­nior School site.

The new CXK HQ will of­fer a ‘one-stop shop’ for the pub­lic
