On the 30th & 31st July 2015 leading developers, Stanhope, hosted an exhibition in the County Square Shopping Centre to present the redevelopment of Elwick Place, Ashford.
The proposals, designed by Guy Hollaway Architects, where presented to the public and received hundreds of visitors across the two days.
The feedback generated from the exhibition’s feedback forms were consistent with verbal feedback received on the day.
Some of the most significant feedback read as the following:
“Do you support the principle of redeveloping the Elwick Place site?”
Over 90% said yes
“What is your overall opinion of the draft proposals presented today?”
Almost 90% were supportive
“Do you support the intention to bring a new cinema to Ashford town centre as part of the Elwick Place proposals?”
Almost 80% were supportive
Gary Bourne from Stanhope Plc said,
We were delighted to see so many people at our exhibition and the overall response to the proposals, which have been drawn up in close consultation with Ashford Borough Council, was very positive indeed. We gathered some extremely useful feedback, which we will now review in advance of submitting a planning application to Ashford Borough Council later this year.
