The Ashford town centre consultation has now closed but we'd like to thank you all for sharing your views.
We are now in the process of analysing all of the data collected. Further details about the feedback received will be added to this page of the website in due course.
High streets up and down the country are facing challenging times with the increase in online shopping and the need to offer something beyond just a shopping experience. Here in Ashford we know residents want more from their town centre and the good news is there are many changes taking place or in the pipeline.
Our ambition is to build on Ashford’s heritage as a market town, one that makes the most of its unique location, international connections and strong community spirit – a modern market town. But it’s not just about words and grand visions – it’s about action.
We've created three maps to showcase the developments around Ashford's town centre. To see them in greater detail, just click on each map and they will then open up within a new window.
Map 1 - What's happening now (this year)
Map 2 - What's coming soon (within the next 3 years)
Map 3 - What we would like to see in the future
Check out these short videos showing the three major projects coming soon...
