Have your say on Bockhanger community space.  
Residents of Bockhanger will have a chance to discuss future plans for a new community space when a virtual consultation event is held on Wednesday 29 September. The public consultation event that was due to be held on 14 March 2020 had to be cancelled at the last moment to protect residents in the growing COVID-19 pandemic. The virtual consultation will pick up from where things were left and discuss the next steps. The event is organised by Ashford Borough Council and Kennington Community Council. Join us online from 4.45pm, the event will start promptly at 5pm and will be closed by 7pm.

In a clear sign of the strength of public interest, nearly 600 people living in the Bockhanger, Bybrook, Kennington and Little Burton areas of Ashford responded to a survey on the future provision of community spaces and the needs of the community. Postal surveys were distributed as part of a major public consultation being led by Kennington Community Council in partnership with Ashford Borough Council. As well as defining requirements, the consultation aims to understand what facilities already exist in the area and how well they are used. 
The online event will identify key outcomes from the survey results and priorities to meet them. A report with recommendations will be presented to a Full Council meeting of Ashford Borough Council after the new consultation period closes on 31 October. 
The public consultation process was launched in response to calls from the community, expressed in a 1,700 name petition, to replace the old centre with alternative facilities.
