Plans for accommodation for disabled adults have been amended following the protection of trees on the site in St. Stephen’s Walk.
The scheme, originally submitted to Ashford Borough Council (ABC) in April, comprises 16 sheltered housing units for profoundly disabled adults together with 6 staff flats. We reported on the confirmation of a tree protection order at the ABC Planning Committee meeting in November that prevented the original proposals being implemented.
Amended plans have now been submitted which alters the position of the main building to avoid the protected trees. The amended plans do not address South Ashford Community Forum’s comment objecting to kerbside refuse collection.
