South Ashford Community Forum (SACF) have reviewed the Draft Recommendations for wards for Ashford Borough Council, produced by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE), and have drafted a response.
SACF is concerned because the LGBCE Draft Recommendations fail to address issues raised by them regarding the pattern of wards serving South Ashford. They also believe that inadequate provision has been made for new development in South Ashford and the town centre.
SACF has produced alternative proposals which address these matters. SACF’s response can be viewed on the South Ashford website under Local Information/Representation/Electoral Review and will be discussed at their meeting on 22nd March.
