Huge public support for cinema, hotel, restaurants and apartments scheme in Ashford town centre

Elwick Place, public exhibition

Almost 1,000 people visited Stanhope’s public exhibition about the future of the Elwick Place site in Ashford town centre last week, during which proposals for the derelict site were put on display of the first time.

Comprising a new boutique multi-screen cinema, a family hotel, restaurants and cafes, an events space, car parking and homes, the proposals represent an investment of £75 million into the local economy.

Stanhope is collating initial feedback from visitors and the response to-date has been overwhelmingly positive, with 85% of respondents who completed a feedback form stating they support the proposals. The exhibition, held on 30 and 31 July, gave shoppers the chance to review the proposals for the long-awaited redevelopment of the Elwick Place site.

The proposals would significantly improve Ashford’s existing leisure offer and night-time economy, with some of the UK’s top restaurant brands targeted to take space at the new development. It is also expected that hundreds of new jobs will be delivered as part of the proposals.

Gary Bourne, Director at Stanhope, said: “We were delighted to see so many people at our exhibition and the overall response to the proposals, which have been drawn up in close consultation with Ashford Borough Council, was very positive indeed. We gathered some extremely useful feedback, which we will now review in advance of submitting a planning application to Ashford Borough Council later this year.”
