The Local Government Boundary Commission for England have adopted Ashford Borough Council’s proposals for ward boundaries for Ashford. This leaves an amended Victoria Ward split by the main railway line through Ashford and isolates the Watercress area even more so than with the existing ward boundaries.
South Ashford Community Forum believes this is a lost opportunity to rationalise the wards and will comment on the proposals. Its proposals can be seen on its website https://southashford.org.uk/index.php/2016/08/09/sacf-electoral-review-proposal/ .
The draft proposals can be seen on the LGBCE website http:// www.lgbce.org.uk
