Christchurch Road will be closed, opposite no. 24a, (Francis Road Junction) during 10 and 11 June 2019 for works for Southern Water.
Work being carried out by South East water is unlikely to affect traffic on the A28, Chart Road.Details were exhibited today at Godinton Village Hall of work proposed to reinforce the water supply in preparation for the construction of 5000 homes at Chilmington Green. Whilst works may cause disruption on Godinton and Repton Park, the 200m of pipe to be laid along Chart Road will be laid in the verge avoiding any need for disruption to traffic.
Work will also be carried out on Ashford Road and Magpie Hall Road in Kingsnorth.
As part of an ongoing programme to improve the water supply network South East Water are planning to install a number of new water mains across Ashford.
The £1.3 million project will involve the installation of new equipment and water pipes, which will help us to increase the amount of water they can pump through their extensive network of underground pipes and better control the flow of water.
It will also ensure they can continue to maintain water pressure to the area as the Chilmington Green development is built.
South East Water are still shaping our plans, but work will take place in the following roads; A28 Chart Road, Chilmington Green Road, Evergreen Way, Loudon Way, Sir John Fogge Avenue and Sweet Bay Crescent.
Work is due to start in October and last for 10 months.

DBEIS looking for views on adding a safeguard energy tariff imposed by Ofgem (the regulator) for vulnerable consumers on standard variable and fixed-term default tariffs to the list of fuel poverty measures for which public authorities can share data with gas and electricity suppliers for the purpose of assisting households in fuel poverty.
Part 5 of the Digital Economy Act 2017 gives government powers to share personal information across organisational boundaries to improve public services. It says what data can be shared and for which purposes, and includes safeguards to ensure that the privacy of citizens’ data is protected. www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2017/30/contents/enacted
Part 5 allows data sharing between specified public authorities and energy suppliers for the purpose of alleviating fuel poverty. The data sharing must be for use under one of the fuel poverty measures listed in section 36(3) of the Act. The list currently includes measures such as the Warm Home Discount and the Energy Company Obligation scheme.
Other fuel poverty measures, such as Ofgem’s proposed safeguard tariff for vulnerable consumers at risk of fuel poverty, are not currently covered by list, so this consultation is about adding it to the list.

Big Energy Saving Week is here! Running between October 31 and November 6, the campaign is calling on the nation’s bill payers to take control of their bills and grab some extra cash. And to celebrate #BESW2016, the Energy Saving Trust is offering you the chance to win £1,500 by testing your knowledge of the best ways to save on your energy supplier.
For example, did you know that the average UK bill-payer can save around £300 just by switching supplier or tariff? And many households may be letting myths hold them back from getting the best deal from their energy supplier.
More than 70 per cent won’t switch to a small supplier they haven’t heard of, even if they could save them money, while some wrongly believe that changing supplier means rewiring your property – or that they have a limited supply of energy compared to their competitors.
Take the quiz and put yourself in with a chance of winning £1,500, and prove you’re switched on to saving!
This doesn’t mean doing without – you can waste less by being energy efficient. The Energy Saving Trust estimates that the average home in the UK could save up to £130 per year – and avoid emitting 500kg of carbon dioxide – simply by taking energy saving steps.
Are you worried about how much money you’re spending to heat and light your home? Do you want to spend less? There are some simple steps you can take to save money and energy by changing the way you use appliances or making your home more energy efficient. (more…)
