Roundtable meeting to discuss Ashford High Street

I was very pleased to chair a meeting, arranged by the Federation of Small Businesses, to discuss the impact of the temporary closure of Ashford High Street.

The High Street has been closed for several weeks to allow for sewer connections works relating to the development of the old Brooklands College site. This has clearly affected local businesses in the High Street, and we were able to talk with the developers and owners of the site about how businesses can be supported during the temporary closure.
