The Company

The Ashford's Future company has been established by the Ashford's Future Partnership Board to support the delivery of housing and economic growth in Ashford.

The new company will not duplicate the role of the Partnership Board. Its focus will be on making things happen and ensuring that new investment is diverted into the delivery of key development sites and infrastructure projects.

These projects will help to bring about the vision for a truly sustainable community as set out in the Greater Ashford Development Framework (GADF) and Ashford Borough Council's Local Development Framework Core Strategy.

The company will build on existing partnership arrangements led by Ashford Borough Council, Kent County Council, South East England Development Agency and the Homes & Communities Agency by providing strong private sector representation on the company Board.

The staff of the company has considerable experience of working on the Ashford Growth Agenda along with European, National and Regional experience in regeneration and economic development. This has been strengthened by additioappointments, including a new Managing Director who has provided strong leadership to the team.
