Expansion approved for Ashford Designer Outlet Centre

How the new extension might look

How the new extension might look

The Ashford Designer Outlet Centre has been given the green light to almost double in size after the borough council approved planning permission for its Phase 2 extension at a meeting on September 23.

The decision means the centre will expand by 100,000 sq ft, creating an additional 500 jobs, bringing the total workforce to 1,500. During the build, which is expected to begin next year, 170 construction staff will be employed.

The extension will include 38 new shops, six new restaurants and cafes and children’s play area. A new car park will provide an extra 725 spaces.

Conditions have been attached to the approval that are designed to protect footfall in Ashford Town Centre, and at the County Square shopping centre and the proposed multi-million pound development at Elwick Place.

These include a list of restaurants that cannot take space, along with an approved list of brands that can if they choose to.

Owner McArthurGlen will fund a shuttle bus linking the outlet, the town centre and the international train station at weekends and during school holidays.

The new, expanded centre is expected to open in 2018.
