Bridgefield Park Grand Opening

Posted by on Jun 28th, 2018 in Featured, Latest News | Comments Off on Bridgefield Park Grand Opening

After several years of planning, consultation and development, leading to construction over this winter, we are delighted to let parish residents know that Bridgefield Park is in the final week of work! The site is starting to look amazing with a new circular footpath, large play area, community orchard, nature conservation area, new access bridge from Rutledge Avenue, signage and interpretation. It’s been over 20 years since a brand new park was commissioned and opened to the community in the Ashford Borough.

To celebrate Kingsnorth Parish Council and Ashford Borough Council are holding an official Grand Opening of the park on Saturday 30th June!

We will be ready to receive attendees to site from 9.30am. The Mayor will perform the ribbon cutting at 10.15am to officially open the park. There will be lots of fun for the whole family with free ice cream, face painting and a giant inflatable hungry hippos game alongside the fantastic new facilities in the play area.

As parking will not be available on site for the event we’d like to ask that you walk to the site where you can to limit the amount of traffic to the site. If you do really need to drive please park several streets away from the site and walk in from the Rutledge Road entrance across the footbridge. We also ask that you show due respect to the neighbours and do not block any driveways or routes.

We look forward to welcoming the local community to their new park!

Kingsnorth Residents Questionnaire

Posted by on May 22nd, 2018 in Featured, Latest News | Comments Off on Kingsnorth Residents Questionnaire

Dear resident, The Parish of Kingsnorth has changed beyond recognition over the last 30 years and now has a population of over 11,500 and growing.

To meet the needs of a growing community and to improve connectivity between existing and new developments the parish council undertook a Master Planning exercise with key stakeholders who represented, The local Church, Kingsnorth school, Village Hall, Recreation Centre and Community Café and Ashford Borough Council.

Representatives were asked what would improve facilities in Kingsnorth and what were the barriers in delivery. From that exercise we have produced a phased master plan for the parish which we know will change over time but gives direction to our future planning.

To deliver the aspirations for the parish we have approved our five-year business plan and we are in the process of reviewing the way we work and manage our resources, copy of the business plan attached.

The Parish council is made up of 10 parish councillors who are all volunteers, two full time members of staff and four-part time, three offices based and three working in our caretaker/ Handyman service.

The Parish council manages the Pavilion and playing Fields, the MUGA, and is the custodian trustee for the Recreation Centre and the Village Hall.

To ensure we have the right skills structures and resources we are in the process of reviewing how we operate so we can deliver this optimistic business plan.

To compliment our deliberations and to check if we have reflected the concerns and aspirations of residents we invite you to complete the short questionnaire.
