Estate inspections in our area

I now have clarification regarding the Housing estate inspections, planned for Aldington, Bilsington & Ruckinge on Monday 18th November

The Council visits each rural Housing Estate once a year- the aim being to inspect the area and make note of any problems  or areas with need for improvement- rubbish, Fly tipping, areas where maintenance needs to be carried out and so on.

These sessions also take into account residents views and long term problems – such as parking.

Anyone in the village is free to attend, and can contact me or direct Kay Deveraux the officer concerned at ABC on 01233 330373 or Kay.deveraux@ashford.gov.uk

Kay will then advise of the meeting place and time.

Although parking issues and other long – term challenges will not be solved in an instant, this is a perfect way of getting big issues highlighted. In another area of Ashford, this has proved successful in bringing about a long term solution to the Parking problem.

Since in small villages such as ours, the maintenance and long term planning of such estates, affects all residents I would suggest that it  is most certainly worth passing this on to all local residents, and giving them an opportunity to join in.
