Bid to keep lorry park for two years

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Spotlight On Hgvs -

A landowner has ap­plied for permission to al­low its site to be used as a lorry park and turn­around point for two more years.

Robert Brett and Sons Ltd first set up the lorry park in April 2015.

The site, near Mata­lan off Lea­con Road, al­lows drivers to swap trail­ers and also pro­vides ba­sic fa­cil­i­ties such as show­ers.

At the time, the com­pany said: “The site is be­ing used on a tem­po­rary ba­sis by a lo­cal busi­ness, while more per­ma­nent premises are sought.

“The use is an essen­tial part of the trans­port of goods be­tween the UK and the con­ti­nent and as such it is a key con­trib­u­tor to the wider econ­omy.”

Now the firm has ap­plied to con­tinue us­ing the site for a fur­ther two years. To view the plans on­line visit www.ash­ford. gov.uk and search for plan­ning ref­er­ence 18/00088/AS.
