Car Parking

Ashford Town Centre is set to expand by around 3,500 new homes and 12,000 new jobs in the next 25 years and the demand to travel to and from the town and use of parking facilities will therefore need to be planned and accommodated for.

Three ways to provide additional parking are proposed:

Park and Shop

Parking provision close to the main shopping areas. These car parks should provide high quality accessible facilities for the disabled, with ‘shopmobility’ schemes served from dedicated spaces.

Park and Walk

Parking facilities near the main approach roads to the town centre but outside of the current Ring Road to reduce circulating traffic flow. These car parks will be provided with enhanced pedestrian facilities and quality public realm improvements to make the short walk attractive.

Park and Ride

Three planned sites located on the edge of the town close to key routes, served by frequent bus services to and from the town centre, stations and Designer Outlet.
