Bockhanger background; : This autumn’s consultation picked up from where things were left in March 2020 when a public consultation event that was due to be held at the Phoenix Community Primary School had to be cancelled due to growing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. 
Back then nearly 600 people living in the Bockhanger, Bybrook, Kennington and Little Burton areas of Ashford had taken part in a survey on the future provision of alternative community spaces. This followed the demolition of the Bockhanger Community Centre in spring 2019. 
This consultation aims to understand what is required by residents, community groups and businesses, and examine what facilities already exist in the area and what they offer.
