This was discussed at the West Area Meeting last Thursday. It was good to see a number of residents present, four of whom spoke and spoke really well and gave reasons for such a development is not appropriate. This matter will not be determined by the Council but I do urge anyone with comment to feed them back. I hope that the Council will set up a page on the website and will chase this.
The next day, this item was front page news. I agree with what Alan Keen says. I wish him well in anything he can do with the Secretary of State and very much hope that he raises this matter, when he can, on the floor of the House of Commons.
We later discussed the ambition for Ashford/St Peter’s to become a Foundation. Very interesting.
One of the more interesting Area Committee meetings for me.
