High Street Minister, Jake Berry MP has praised Ashford’s innovative approach to boosting the town centre.

Mr Berry was given a tour of Ashford’s town centre & close development sites, meeting retailers & shop owners along the way. 

It’s great to have seen a town centre that is thriving and is enjoying an increase in the number of people visiting. After his tour, the minister said,

"I have met some fantastic and passionate champions for the town centre and it’s obvious to me that this success comes from a strong partnership approach.”

The tour took in Park Mall Shopping Centre, the high street and County Square shopping centre, which has just celebrated its 10th anniversary. He also visited Elwick Place, a new 100,000 sq ft town centre cinema, hotel and restaurant complex due to open later in 2018.
