Work begins on multi-million pound Ashford regeneration

Construction work on Elwick Place, a two-hectare brownfield development site in the heart of Ashford town centre, has begun following signing of an unconditional agreement between Ashford Borough Council and Stanhope PLC. As well as a Travelodge and Picturehouse boutique cinema, the scheme will include eight new restaurants/cafes, new carpark and residential dwellings.

The scheme is one element of a wider £519 million of investment in developments in Ashford town centre currently under construction or with construction expected to start within the next five years, building on the town’s unique position with its high-speed rail route to Central London and Europe.

Elwick Place will provide for this extensive visitor catchment, while also serving Ashford’s growing population, one of the fast growing towns in the South East, with the resident population in the borough’s catchment area expected to grow at a faster rate than the UK average, rising to 303,000 by 2025.
