Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Latest Housing Plans Revealed -

Here’s what you said on Face­book:

Abi­gail King said: “More hous­ing, se­ri­ously?! Maybe they need to think more about bring­ing more shop trades than houses and more work for the res­i­dents of Ash­ford than to bring more new res­i­dents.”

Jitu Miah said: “Bril­liant growth for Ash­ford which will bring more peo­ple to the town and de­velop in the long run for busi­ness ideas and so­cial and di­ver­sity of the grow­ing town. We need more peo­ple in or­der for busi­ness to be able to open and sus­tain on the long term as they will be a greater pop­u­la­tion for Ash­ford which will mean more spend with in the town.”

Garry Hope said: “Pray tell, oh mighty coun­cil, where are the­ses peo­ple sup­posed to work, go to school, find a doc­tor or den­tist and is the Har­vey go­ing to ex­pand to take care of these good folk?”

Greg Hewlett said: “Cool, more hous­ing. More the mer­rier. More peo­ple, more ameni­ties, more shops and restau­rants will open up again when there’s a higher foot­fall in town. Bring on progress.”

Ali­son Hall said: “They might as well turn Vic­to­ria Park into park­ing spa­ces for all those homes as they won’t pro­vide enough park­ing for them. More con­crete mess in Ash­ford.”
