Prop­er­ties have own post­codes

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Postal Service Problems -

An Ash­ford Bor­ough Cun­cil spokesman said: “As well as be­ing in­di­vid­u­ally named, the blocks of flats in Kil­ndown Close ac­tu­ally have dif­fer­ent post­codes to the orig­i­nal Kil­ndown prop­er­ties in or­der to dis­tin­guish them for res­i­dents and the post­men.

“Along with Moat Hous­ing and Royal Mail we have re­minded res­i­dents to use their full postal ad­dress.

The flats are iden­ti­fi­able from their signs, in­deed fur­ther sig­nage on the high­way or paths would be con­fus­ing and is there­fore not con­sid­ered to be an effective so­lu­tion.

“While we can po­ten­tially re-ad­dress the prop­er­ties, we are look­ing into this fur­ther to un­der­stand if all res­i­dents are ef­fected or whether it is a mi­nor­ity.

“It would be un­rea­son­able to force an ad­dress change on 27 prop­er­ties when the is­sue re­lates to just three.”
