Latest on bid for rail stop
An update on a proposed railway platform for the Park Farm estate in Ashford is also due to be discussed by councillors.
A plan for a rail halt on the estate, which was originally put forward in 2001, would see the construction of a small railway platform on the Ashford to Hastings line.
It would improve transport links for the thousands of people living on the Kingsnorth estate.
The scheme was revisited in a planning application in 2012 which looked at the remaining undeveloped elements of Park Farm development.
A report ahead of the meeting says views on the proposed rail stop have been sought from Network Rail, the Department for Transport and Southern Railways.
Money would be provided by Section 106 obligations. The land for the rail halt is protected from any other development until July 2021.
Cllr Jim Wedgbury, Ashford ward member for Park Farm, said: “I think with a growing town it is sensible to put a rail halt in. It will benefit the town, and the Outlet.
“The bus journey from Park Farm takes about an hour - it goes all around the houses. It is quicker to walk! A sensible link that would take 10 minutes, would be great for everyone.”
