Ear­mark trans­port be­fore de­vel­op­ment

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

With ref­er­ence to your re­cent ar­ti­cles on the Lo­cal Plan, I see that Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil has ear­marked room for the ex­pan­sion of the Wil­liam Har­vey Hos­pi­tal ‘cam­pus’.

Will some­one from the coun­cil tell us if this means the ac­tual hos­pi­tal will be ex­panded – de­fine ‘cam­pus’ please – as there do not seem to be any ref­er­ences to this on the web­site that I could find.

And, if they have also ‘ear­marked’ land to the south of the hos­pi­tal for 200 houses, which are they ‘ear­mark­ing’ to be built first ... houses or hos­pi­tal?

All this ‘ear­mark­ing’ would make more sense if they used their ‘ears’ and ‘marked’ what lo­cal peo­ple are ask­ing for – im­proved in­fra­struc­ture (an es­sen­tial be­ing the hos­pi­tal) be­fore ce­ment­ing over this area of Kent with more and more houses. D. Collins Ash­ford
